I suspect it'll be 'instanced' enabled with groups, and not open world. Cant see how else they'd do it.

It is real-time so no slow motion.

There will also be little story involved and there are no NPCs other than robots and monsters. This looks like it will be more of an Ark or Rust type clone.

I am not interested in this game at all. Hopefully this doesn't sell well and we get a true single player focused game with OPTIONAL coop. I hate how every game nowadays seems to be going with forced always online even for single player games.

So this looks like it will be a side project and not a Fallout 5. I have enough multiplayer games and don't have the time/can't coordinate my friends to always be online at the same time to enjoy this. Back in high school I think I would have loved this game but now I am lucky if I get an hour or two a week when my friends are all online at the same time.

Fallout 76 has a really interesting PVP system where if the other person doesn't engage you in combat and you kill them anyway, you get a bounty on your head which is paid by your own money and all other players can see you on the map but you can't see them. You can even block players that are trolling you and they won't be able to mess with you during that session. That's a great way to minimize griefing, lol.

You're immune to player damage till level 5 so you get into the game a little before other people just start killing you.

You can store stuff in boxes that no other player can access.

There's a pacifist mode where your bullets won't hurt others so you totally play solo and ignore other players completely

So far it looks pretty casual-gamer friendly. I don't usually play online games but so far Fallout 76 doesn't look too competitive and you can enjoy it at your own pace.

Few other gameplay mechanics explained in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c48GX8MRE7o

After watching Oxhorn's live streams of the PC beta, I'm actually tempted now. I HATE the idea of multiplayer Fallout, but having a big Fallout world to run around in is really tempting. Yeah it's basically a modded FO4 with no single player campaign, but it looks really good graphically, and there's TONS of lore if you're a fan of that stuff.

Yea, but no NPCs kind of makes for a boring dead world. At least those are my thoughts. I'm just disappointed that they went this route for a fallout game. I could maybe even understand a side project or something for MP, but a core game in the fallout world just doesn't below as MP.

It is a side game though. Bugthesda already confirmed that FO76 didn't slow down any other development work on Starfield, TES6, or FO5. We won't see FO5 for years though, hence my temptation.
