The report confirms that the game will have quests and a story to follow, and will also carry on the base-building mechanics found in Fallout 4. Fallout 76 has now been officially teased in the video above.
That hasn't stopped chatter and many a leak about the game filtering through ahead of next month's gaming extravaganza, and Fallout 76 is now bound to be established as the most anticipated reveal of the event.

So I was just winging it in the last minute. "I think she played better than I expected, so it was a tough match". The fear that I might not come back as strong as I was. "I really try to put her first in my life".
In Fallout lore, Vault 76 has been referenced often, even as recently in Fallout 4.
Bethesda has also started to live stream, on their Twitch account, a TV set displaying the "Please Stand By" test screen and in front of it is a figure of Vault Boy (from the Fallout franchise). During the E3 2015 showing for Fallout 4, Todd Howard spent over half an hour explaining the ins and outs of the game, while showcasing the highlights of what set Fallout 4 apart from the others. Fans and journalists alike took random guesses as to what Bethesda's newest title could be, but when Fallout 76's name was announced the previous talk was quickly silenced.
We probably shouldn't expect anything further to come from Bethesda until E3, so take the above with a grain of salt. Recently, Kotaku stated that what they know of this reveal is that it is a new game.
Personally I hope to see it double down on the idea of role-playing as a vault overseer (or, if it is multiplayer, a council of overseers), which Fallout 4's Vault-Tec Workshop DLC clumsily introduced.
The newly announced Fallout 76 is an online survival RPG heavily inspired by games like DayZ and Rust, according to three people familiar with the project who spoke to Kotaku under the condition of anonymity.
