As per the rumors, Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 76 will be an online game where there will be an emphasis placed on working and interacting with other players. While Fallout has supported multiplayer, what the game is known for are its campaigns and storyline which are largely single-player based.
Unsurprisingly there are some players who aren’t too thrilled about the new direction that Fallout is headed, but the good news is that you won’t have to deal with other players if you don’t want to. Bethesda’s Todd Howard confirmed that the game will Support Private Games, which means that players won’t have to deal with other players if they don’t want to.
However the bad news is that these Private Games won’t be available at launch and are expected to come later. Speaking to Geoff Keighley, Howard said, “We will not being able to do that at launch, though. Our goal for launch — this is really new for us — is to have a well-running, robust service, and then some period later, we’re currently still designing what that service looks like, you’ll be able to have your own private world, and be able to mod it and do all of that.”
