Now in pre-production at Bethesda Game Studios, the acclaimed developers of Skyrim and Fallout 4.

The Fallout 76 beta hasn't got a release date, but will need to land before the game goes live in November.

The trailer doesn't reveal much other than you are one of the Vault 76 dwellers and it's your job to rebuild the US, what that entails will no doubt be revealed atthe Bethesda show in a few hours. Instead there are a handful of players in the same server, meaning you can either form your own tight-knit community as you buddy up with them, make a bunch of new enemies, or just play on your own. And when is all of this Fallout 76 goodness coming your way?

Dubbed the Break it Early Test Application, players will also be able to pre-order the game to get a chance at joining the beta.

Also, dying in Fallout 76 doesn't mean a loss of progression or a loss of your character. There are new creatures, with many inspired by the folklore of West Virginia.

Meanwhile, Fallout Shelter will have a release on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch - and its going to come out later today. Thanks to the handy new C.A.M.P. device, players can create a base anywhere in the world. Featuring PvPvE gameplay, players can choose to work together or kill one another in this world. Players also shouldn't expect to meet many others during their journey through the Wasteland, as each player will play with only a few others on different servers. Additionally, it's running a sale on in-game items from June 14-18 on mobile, PC, and Xbox One.

The Elder Scrolls 6 does not now have a confirmed release window or list of platforms.
