Fallout 76 Will Likely Never Have Offline Gameplay, Says Bethesda

It looks like Fallout 76 is shaping up real nice. Since the reveal earlier this year, Bethesda quickly revealed several features and gameplay fun it had to offer. From punishing griefers in the smartest way possible, to private server capabilities for folks looking to mod it up or experiment with some ideas for multiplayer interactions. In other words, there’s a lot to look forward to, but there is a catch for those not looking to enjoy Fallout 76 with fellow gamers.

According to Bethesda’s Senior Vice President of Global Marketing and Communications, Pete Hines, offline play will likely never happen due to server requirements. At least, “not completely.” In response to player inquiry, here’s what Hines had to say:

Before you get too worried, keep in mind that Bethesda has assured fans that Fallout 76 does not determine the future of their games. The developer and publisher is renown for their fantastic solo campaign games and they’re not about to stray away from their core. With the addition of this game, the folks behind the game wanted to get a little creative and thought – why not? It could be fun and it would be “pretty awesome.”
