Bethesda says Fallout 76 will never have a disconnected game option



  Fallout 76
Back on E3, Bethesda revealed a new Fallout game called Fallout 76, which is set in a post-apocalyptic West Virginia wasteland. Unlike every previous iteration in the Fallout series, the upcoming title will not contain a disconnected component. It's just multiplayer and if you hoped that Bethesda would eventually release offline games, do not hold your breath.
Bethesda is one of the masters of single player games, and even recruited the original Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter) late last year to promote a tongue-in-cheek campaign to save the singleplayer experience. Carter, as fans of The Elder Scrolls know, have stated several characters in the franchise that return to The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and more recently in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Nevertheless, Bethesda has no plans to release an offline mode for Fallout 76, partly due to technical reasons.

Pete Hines, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and Communications on Bethesday, explained the reason in answering a question on Twitter asking if there would be an offline mode. Hines pointed to Fallout 76 as a server-based game, and insinuated it would take some major re-encoding to release a client-based component.

The good news for players who do not like playing on teams is that although Fallout 76 is an online game, solo experiences will be possible. However, Bethesda pointed out that E3 would be more difficult to play solo. "The easiest way to survive in the wilderness is to gather and build together," Bethesda said.

Fallout 76 is set near the beginning of the post-apocalyptic world in 2102, otherwise known as the Reclamation Day, just 25 years since bombs fell. Much of the open world landscape will be intact, compared with other titles in the series. Bethesda describes it as an "undisputed wasteland," and finds that it will be the newest and most dynamic world in the Fallout universe.

The game is set for launch on November 14, 2018, just in time for Thanksgiving holidays in the US. It will be available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at different price points, depending on the edition.
