Republished on Wednesday, 28th December, 2022: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of January 2023's PS Plus lineup. The original text follows. Fallout 76 will be remembered as a defining moment for Bethesda Game Studios, and not in a good way. This entirely multiplayer take on the Fallout...
How to store items in Fallout 76
How does your stash work in Fallout 76? The game doesn't do a great job of telling you how to get the most out of your stash, but it's more useful than you might think. As is the case in previous Fallout titles, your character can only carry a set amount of items before they become over encumbered. In Fallout 76,...
When does the Fallout 76 beta start?
When can you start playing the Fallout 76 beta test? Bethesda's B.E.T.A programme for its multiplayer only Fallout game begins today on PS4, but it's only available at certain points. So, what dates and times is the beta online? We've assembled a handy guide to let you know how you can play the beta and when it's...
Release date, platforms, power armor edition
During its E3 2018 press conference, Bethesda blew the next entry in the Fallout franchise wide open. It's called Fallout 76, and it's an online survival game as opposed to an open world single-player RPG. Think a more casual Rust or Day-Z set in a post apocalyptic environment and you're on the right...

Allegedly looks better, too
If Fallout: New Vegas is the black sheep of Bethesda's modern Fallout family (developed as it was by Obsidian), we aren't quite sure what that makes Fallout 76. Released in 2018 in a shockingly bad state, an incomprehensible Gen Alpha or Bravo second cousin, perhaps? In any case, Fallout 76 apparently runs at 60...
4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42
Fallout 4 is an RPG so chock-full of content that even veterans of the Wasteland are likely to wander past some of its more esoteric cultural references, even all these years later. Case in point: developer Jonah Lobe just confirmed that a quarry containing flashing lights and a mini-nuke is a Lost reference, and definitely not...
Fall in order
Announced last week when we were all in the throes of eating lots of rich food and watching Home Alone 2 (probably), the latest gaggle of PS Plus Essential monthly games is now available to claim on PS5 and PS4. A trio of treats can now be added to your library and downloaded. As a reminder, here's what will be available during the...
Plus or minus?
Hold on, January 2023? It's here already?! Yep, we know it's hard to believe, but a whole new year is here — and that means we've got another 12 months of PS Plus offerings to look forward to (and perhaps moan about incessantly). We can see January's selection being somewhat divisive. It's spearheaded by the well-liked Star Wars...
A grim industrial wasteland, awash with radiation
Fallout 76's latest DLC will have players venturing back to the Pitt, the irradiated ruins of Pittsburgh which was the setting for a Fallout 3 expansion of the same name. The update is free and available now but is designed for high-level play, so you may want to gear up before going on this...
We have to go back
Announced during the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase, the next major expansion for Fallout 76 is called Expeditions - The Pitt, which will see players travelling beyond the borders of Appalachia on an expedition to the ruined remains of Pittsburgh (a location which will be familiar to players of Fallout 3's second DLC, also called...
Part of five-year roadmap
Rust developer Double Eleven has been signed up by Bethesda to help create further Fallout 76 content alongside the main team back in Rockville, Maryland. Confirmed in a blog post on the company's website, the content the studio has worked on is planned to be released later this year after talks began in "late 2020". Even...
Because nobody's playing it
It's lights out for the Battle Royale mode in Fallout 76 as Bethesda announced the post-launch offering will be removed from the game at the end of September. The reason why? There aren't enough users actively playing it to justify keeping it around. Full lobbies were tough to come by, meaning matchmaking times were...
Locked and loaded
An absolutely enormous Fallout 76 update weighing in at an astonishing 58.6GB has rolled out on PlayStation 4, as Bethesda continues to iterate on the persistent online game. Dubbed the Locked & Loaded patch, it brings with it a wealth of new features and functions, including the ability to establish a second C.A.M.P. base and...
Bethesda may be gone, but Fallout 76 is not! The publisher’s committed continued support for the online RPG on PlayStation 4, and that means you’ll be able to enjoy its entire suite of 2021 content. The firm has released a roadmap today, which outlines a little bit of what you can expect, beginning with Season 4 this coming Spring. The...
Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of Skyrim and Fallout 4, welcome you to Fallout 76. Twenty-five years after the bombs fall, you and your fellow Vault Dwellers—chosen from the nation’s best and brightest – emerge into post-nuclear America on Reclamation Day, 2102. Play solo or join together as you explore, quest, build, and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats. Explore a vast wasteland, devastated by nuclear war, in this open-world multiplayer addition to the Fallout story. Experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe.
Immersive Questlines and Engaging Characters
Uncover the secrets of West Virginia by playing through an immersive main quest, starting from the moment you leave Vault 76. Befriend or betray new neighbors who have come to rebuild, and experience Appalachia through the eyes of its residents.
Progress through a season with a completely free set of rewards like consumables, C.A.M.P. items and more, by completing limited-time challenges.
Create your character with the S.P.E.C.I.A.L system and forge your own path and reputation in a new and untamed wasteland with hundreds of locations. Whether you journey alone or with friends, a new and unique Fallout adventure awaits.
The story lives and breathes through the world of Fallout 76, which brings to life six distinct West Virginia regions. From the forests of Appalachia to the noxious crimson expanses of the Cranberry Bog, each area offers its own risks and rewards.
A New American Dream
Use the all-new Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform (C.A.M.P.) to build and craft anywhere in the world. Your C.A.M.P. will provide much-needed shelter, supplies, and safety. You can even set up shop to trade goods with other survivors.
Play unique adventures in Appalachia with Fallout Worlds, which is an evolving set of features that give players the capability to play Fallout 76 in unique ways with customizable settings.
