Like most people yesterday, I was pretty clued to reddit and Twitter.
My phone told me that Bethesda was going to make an announcement soon.
Bethesda’s Twitter page had this –
Their Twitch channel had this as the main item –
So I followed that, on my phone, at the top of every hour.
reddit was the true hero yesterday.
This thread had the various fun events that broke up the live stream –
with most of the actual discussion and time killing taking place in this thread –
With it all leading up to this teaser trailer!
Thanks to Bethesda Softworks for hosting their own video.
It is a short trailer a minute and 34 seconds but it is glorious!
Lots of speculation going on, naturally, but answers will be given on Sunday, June 10, at 6:30pm, and you best believe I’ll be following that news that evening. What we can tell is that it takes place in West Virginia, which could be super close to Fallout 3’s DC location.
From the Fallout Wiki –
I’m so pumped as this could be my first Fallout game that I actually buy day one! I’ve been super late to Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 and completely missed out on Fallout New Vegas, which I was hoping they were going to announce a remaster of that one just so I can finally play it.
Obsidian had this awesome tweet –
which was pretty fun and I’m sure they were getting questions galore.
The Call of Duty peeps apparently put up their own Please Stand By feed that is also pretty fun.
Apparently Bethesda did this way back when Fallout 4 came out, pretty much exactly the same way. Two weeks before E3 and with a 24 hour tease before a teaser trailer. So that’s all pretty good and fun for me.
Whenever I take Walker Dennis to Target for our quest for new Hot Wheels, we keep seeing a Fallout Wallet and these Fallout Shot Glasses –
Apparently the wallet isn’t on their website anymore but I wouldn’t mind the shot glasses now. It felt silly before but I’m all about Fallout again!
When we got our new Galaxy S7 phones back in February, my wife had me look for a phone case for mine and I thought about getting a Fallout related one but didn’t find one plus I thought it would be silly to have a constant thing related to the game, with me at all times, but now I sort of regret not buying one.
The two I’m able to find now are not available and I’m just going to tell myself that was the case then too. Maybe I’ll get a new one once the game comes out.
I’m currently playing Until Dawn and working on a post for that game but I wanted to get my thoughts about Fallout 76 while it was fresh and current.
