GameSpot has played the multiplayer beta version of Fallout 76 and they described it as having "more of an amusement park vibe--with several key attractions and locales clearly highlighted on the map," and "the feeling that I was sort of experiencing the greatest hits of all things Fallout." They commented on how short the buffs and weapons lasted as they needed to be repaired or broken down into materials. They enjoyed the character growth, but missed the storytelling associated with meeting new enemies. The article goes into how the PvP system works and more. 76 certainly isn't like other Fallout games. After our three hours, I got the impression that Bethesda is taking a risky approach with the series in regards to its lore and its core gameplay. With its heavy focus on survival gameplay and the online experience, I suspect that this largely experimental take on Fallout will become a rather polarizing entry.
