This post is a tad bit late since I have been working on adding sections to the blog and working on restructuring my posts and pages. Instagram should be up to date with all available posts, finally! I’m thinking of investing in a social media posting platform to automatically post as blog posts come out. That may happen in the near future. Between school and work, once I finish a post, it is hard to keep up with making sure that all of my social media accounts are up to date.
Anyways, one of the new pages on TheUnluckyThirteen, as you can now see, is video games. I love video games and this is a way to expand my writing and give me more content between subscription boxes and streaming releases. I am still devoted to keeping you up to date on those.
Fallout: Vault 76
Some of you probably already know that Bethesda is releasing a new game Fallout game. The Fallout: Vault 76 release followed an intense stream of NOTHING on Bethesda’s Twitch page. The stream focused on a sleeping Vault Boy with intermittent activity. By the time I found out about it, it was 8:00 pm (my time). Of course, I watched it until 11:00 when I fell asleep. I missed the trailer release but watched it on YouTube shortly after. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out here.
What I Found
Following the trailer, I started doing some research and here is everything I have found:
- The game is going to be an open-world survival RPG game. Similar to the previous Fallout games with an added online or multiplayer mode.
- It will have quests and a story, like any other game from Bethesda.
- It will feature base-building, similar to Fallout 4.
- The game is going to take place in West Virginia.
- The vault is opened 20 (25?) years after the bombs fall, making it the earliest in terms of the Fallout game timeline. These dwellers were meant to be the first ones to reclaim the land after the bombs fell.
- These vault dwellers were not part of an experiment, unlike many other vaults that we have come across in past Fallout games. They are part of the 17 control vaults that were used exactly as advertised and are meant to rebuild after the bombs.
- There are possibly aliens? In Fallout 3, there is a recording found that was made by the Vault-Tec Assistant CEO when he was inspecting Vault 76’s construction site. In the recording, he is trying to talk to the aliens and end up being killed (or taken).
- 2102 was the year that the FEV virus was discovered and when The Master started experiments resulting in super mutants.
Take all of this information with a grain of salt. I have not been able to play the game or seen any gameplay. Don’t make any decisions about the game solely based on this information. There should be some confirmed information during and after E3.
That is all I’ve got from hours of YouTube and multiple articles that have been published. Bethesda has confirmed their press conference at E3 on June 10th. I will do my best to keep everyone updated on what happens at E3, for those of you who don’t tune in on your own.
