After going hands-on with Fallout 76 in West Virginia we had the chance to sit down with Bethesda's Pete Hines to talk about the game and the series. Ahead of our conversation we had more than enough notes, questions, and thoughts jotted down - turns out we didn't look at them once as what followed was a natural and lengthy conversation covering a lot of ground.
Including some of the game's more radical shifts, like the absence of human NPCs.
“I mean let's be honest, characters in Fallout games are important,” Pete explains. “There have been many iconic, memorable, quirky, and interesting characters. To remove that element is risky, it’s very different, and it is certainly one of the things that folks react to. But the ability to then experience these worlds with other people in ways you simply could never do before, and the fun of that, I think, is a worthwhile trade off.”

Great write up! I am looking forward to the game.
I'll probably cancel my pre-order. The game may not be for me. I'll have to wait and see what happens after release and go from there.
