The first gameplay trailer for Fallout 76 was dropped at the Microsoft E3 conference Sunday. Fallout 76 is set to be a prequel to the previous Fallout games. The game is set in West Virginia, and is going to be four times bigger than the other games, Todd Howard said. Judging by the trailer, the focus of the game appears to be before the bombs have dropped, and rebuilding the world after they have dropped. It also looks like Fallout 4‘s settlement gameplay will be expanded upon.

Bethesda first announced Fallout 76 at the end of last month. A teaser was dropped with only the name of the game after a fairly vague tweet featuring the standard Fallout “Please Standby” loading screen. It has been confirmed that this title will be more like Rust or DayZ, rather than previous Fallout games. Players will no longer be lone wanderers, but able to team up with other gamers in an online atmosphere.

There is no official release date for the game, but pre-orders for Fallout 76 begin on June 15th. Take a look at the trailer below.
