Set to the tune of The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be So Nice,” the new Fallout 76 vignette introduces viewers to the “Appalachian Wasteland” that awaits them come November 14.
“I usually find in our games, the best moments aren’t the ones that we designed; they’re when you’re out in the open world and different systems collide. Putting that power in the hands of the players exponentially increases the number of different magic moments that can happen in the game,” Todd Howard, Bethesda director and executive producer behind the Fallout series, tells The Guardian. “Some other games out there have done a little bit of that, but not in the way we wanted to do it. Fallout 76 is a mix of what you’d expect of us – there’s an open world, with our kinds of quests, and you do have a goal – but then you don’t know what’s gonna happen when you run into somebody else. That interested us greatly from a design-mood standpoint.”
