It looks pretty damn good--I trust Obsidian, and New Vegas was one of my favorite Fallout experiences, but holy hell is the post-apocalyptic genre crowded in 2019.

Fallout 76
Far Cry New Dawn
RAGE 2
The Outer Worlds
Borderlands 3
Metro Exodus
The Division 2
Days Gone

Looks outstanding to me potentially. When is this coming out? A new Fallout game done better not named Fallout with some Borderlands and Bioshock elements thrown in.


Fallout 76 what?

Phew, that steam page is a relief. With Microsoft having their hooks in Obsidian now, I was worried that the game might be given the death sentence of being exclusive to the windows 10 store.

After seeing that gameplay video, the Borderlands influence and aesthetics, stationary NPCs, etc - pretty unmistakable, especially the indoor areas.

Couldn't be happier with what they've done with this game-- New Vegas+Borderlands+Bioshock all dropped into a blender and then modernized.

I'm just praying it won't come out as a bugfest which, unfortunately, Obsidian tends to struggle with.

The premise looks interesting. I am extremely disappointed that it is first person instead of isometric.

Not enough of a market. Iso's are a bygone era. PoE was great, but releasing two Iso's back-to-back = financial suicide. There's a reason Microsoft had to rescue them.

I see the Fallout heritage for sure, but I also see the influence of Mass Effect & Bioshock. Too early to tell, but this certainly has my attention now. I don't think they could have announced it at a better time, despite the crowded genre.

MS owns them but this started development in 2016 and is being published and funded by Take-Two's Private Division. This will likely be the last Obsidian game without MS' influence.

This game is on my radar for sure, it looks like it hits a lot of points, my only concern is it looks to be linear rather than open world. But it could still a good game for sure.

I'm pretty sure Game Informer mentioned that this would not be "open world" in the same vein as Fallout, it would be more "linear". That's not entirely a bad thing in my book, but it's obviously early yet. Future info could shed more light.
