    Uh oh, Kotaku saying it's an online focused game.

    From the stream:
    After 19 hrs of various vault boy bobble head related antics

    "Have we waited long enough guys? I think we have. We want to thank all of you who tuned into this, it's amazing, we have had over 2 million unique visitors to the stream, to watch I dunno what? Nothing. But um, we have something really cool to show you, It's a tease for our next game, and we will see you all at E3, June 10th. Thanks again."

    Hopefully it is a full game. If it is some ridiculous mobile or online game I'll be pretty pissed.

    I hope so.

    I don't think anyone has played Fallout and wished it had a shared hub and party connectivity.

    Doesn't look mobile based on the trailer.

    Have been rumours they wanted to do an online version though.

    Vault 76 was a control vault meant to open after 20 years. I never paid enough attention but it was apparently referenced in FO3.

    Please be something good. Please be something good. Please be something good.

    Kotaku the only ones convinced it will be online so far.

    At the start the pipboy is showing 27 October 2102 so there’s our setting and it’s 25 years to the week after the bombs fell.

    After looking up Bethesda Austin it looks like they assisted Id with multiplayer content for Doom. Who knows what this will be, sounds like we shouldn’t set our expectations for Fallout as we know it.

    Sounds like a spin off, Online game with a focus on base building elements?

    I don't know if he'd go with that unless he had some very solid info.

    The very notion is a like having a knife twisted through your heart. It's the opposite of what Fallout is.

    Praying for it to not be an online game. I love Fallout more than anything but I would seriously consider not even bothering if it’s online - just make it a normal Fallout game and reap in the sales and acclaim.

    But I wouldn’t trust this one source saying it’s online just yet - wait for everything to be unveiled at E3

    After Fallout 4 it doesn't give as much hope. People can cop the usual bugs for a rich RPG experience.

    Fingers crossed it's a return to the Fallout of old.

    I've been expecting a fallout online game since elder scrolls online came out.

    The one source that knew fo 4 was set in Boston and a heaps of other details prior to release. He's usually pretty good.
    It's too soon after four for a whole new game considering Bethesda don't sell their ip anymore,, I reckon online fallout will be mad.

    I think you should all start preparing to be disappointed

    If it's like ESO (with as much lore and depth) then I could maybe handle that. For an online game it's very single player friendly.

    Remembering Vault 76 was a control vault with the purpose of repopulating the wasteland, there was no funny shit like the other vaults with the FEV or drugs in the water and no 20 men 10 women and a panther.

    From the Fallout Wiki
    In FO3
    If like dwwaino said it's set 20 years to the day after the war. There won't be massive places like Megaton or Diamond City. I reckon it will be more a sandbox survival game, they will want to use the base building mechanics from FO 4 and turn it into a multiplayer game will prob be more Day Z than ESO.

    My issue is how quickly did super mutants evolve and ghouls and deathclaws, if it's only 20 years will it be missing heaps of the stuff people love from FO games, will devolve into build a base die rinse repeat with no real substance. So hopefully it's more mmo than survival

    Edit: apparently the date is about 25 years to the day after the first bombs, so there will be tons of radiation, fresh ghouls, super radroaches.
    Wouldn't surprise me is the vault is the main hub and you go out and play survival simulator from there in the mountains of Virginia

    Also remembering this guy is one of the lead writers on Kotaku he wouldn't go this hard without a solid source

    God damn, was excited after watching the trailer but now coming here and seeing it’s likely to be online like ESO, I’m fully prepared to be disappointed now, not sure I’ll even bother.

    I could handle a Fallout game in the style of DayZ, could be really fun, would also make sense they'll have a Battle Royale type game as well (if that image wasn't fake).
