For anyone wondering when we’ll get to return to the wasteland after 2015’s Fallout 4, Bethesda has answered that question with a teaser trailer for the next entry: Fallout 76. The game has been confirmed for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It will appear in Bethesda’s presentation at E3 2018, which is scheduled for June 10 at 6:30 PM PT / 9:30 PM ET. While we don’t have a release date yet or many other details besides what’s shown in the cryptic, cinematic teaser above, we can make a few guesses.
The game seems to be based in or around Vault 76, in the year 2102. If so, that would make it the earliest game in the Fallout series (for reference, the bombs fell in 2077). The teaser shows a character in a vault jumpsuit strap on a Pip-Boy while TV footage tells occupants they’ll need to rebuild society. That could be a hint that Fallout 76 will put more of a focus on the base-building elements introduced in Fallout 4.

Whether you’re a diehard fan of the series or you want to see what all the hype is about, you might be ready to lock in your Fallout 76 pre-order. If so, we have all the information you need below.
No pre-order bonus
Bethesda hasn’t announced any pre-order bonuses so far for Fallout 76. Pre-orders of big games from major studios like this often come with a little something extra, so some kind of bonus could be announced in the future. If it is, we’ll add it here.
Suggested retail price: $60
The standard edition of Fallout 76 is the only one that’s been announced so far. As such, it’s the only one that’s available to pre-order. If other editions are announced, we’ll add them as retailers put them on their sites.
