I just hope it follows a similar model to fallout4. what I mean by that is first person based ,not like one of those top down fallout games, or like a sims type as mentioned above. Can't wait to see some gameplay, I'll know within the first minute or so whether I'll be buying that :)

Any link it has to Fallout Shelter would imply micro transactions which wouldn't be a surprise.

hopefully its about a revolution to bring the country back from nuclear destruction and has an intense story line. given the available technology to people i can see this being somewhat a possibility. maybe we could see them build on that idea and get even more fallout games. being that 1776 symbolizes the birth of the U.S. as a nation it does not seem unlikely.

I don't see Multiplayer happening like some rumors say. On this engine, its going to be a horrible thing all over.

Single player... not even that interested. Fallout 4 was meh. They need to radically reboot this franchise with a brand new engine or a serious revamp. The animations, the combat, it was outdated already during FO3 and its painful to play this. Indie sandbox games do it better...

I'm seeing some noise around twitter that this is because Bethesda "banned" Kotaku due to an earlier Fallout 4 leak from them. Could just be someone spreading FOD. I guess we'll see....

Never finished Fallout 3, never played Fallout 4, I'm lousy at being a Fallout fan lol, but I do like the post apocalyptic setting of the game.
Exact same thing happened to me. Just never gripped me. I tried Fallout 4, I think I got one hour in, maybe 2 or 3, I just felt like I was in a walking simulator that was required to point and shoot sometimes, my aim didn't even matter much a lot of the time. I don't know, just didn't grip me. I like to be challenged, which is why I gravitate to RTS genre I think, makes me manage a lot of things at once and lets my imagination run wild sometimes.

I found FO4 interesting because I actually live in the Commonwealth ,and there was a lot of little details, & nuances that they did a pretty good job on, that you'd pick up on if you lived or visited here long enough. There was some little things i recall getting immediately, that id see people trying to figure out in youtube videos ( like when they announced the far harbor DLC I knew the second I read the title what that was). I hope the same effort goes into FO5. I just wish they had developed western Massachusetts more as well as central Massachusetts, because the majority of residents in the Commonwealth don't sound like they live in Boston. Most people here don't have an accent at all, and eastern MA is the smaller portion of the state.

Elder Scrolls Online... Damn that game could have been good.
On a regular basis, I look at my collection of TES games on the shelves, and *sigh* over what could have been.... Sounds dramatic, and probably is, but I still do it...
I wanted SO badly to enjoy that game... I got in on a late beta, and was so excited.... And then so disappointed. I was in on early beta with WoW, and beta'd several other games like Guild Wars 1, Asheron's Call 1 & 2, several others, so I know what a beta looks like, and I wasn't upset with the bugs, or the unfinished nature, broken quests, etc... It was just a bad rendition of one of my favorite game series...

I stuck with ESO for a long long time, from closed beta all the way up to Veteran Rank (13 or 14 on 1 class, 10 on two others), playing through three storylines to get the entire game world unlocked.. it was a fun theme park MMO and the World vs World thing was pretty neat... but the character building/progression and itemization was straight up utter crap. It doesn't change at endgame (which in fact doesn't even exist proper). The crafting is shallow as it can get as well. Basically you get a few skill trees and a third person action game with a large map full of markers to run to. Its not an RPG, that's just an illusion covered up by tons of writing 90% of the playerbase won't ever read (myself included because major overkill in that sense and not that interesting at all).

And then they pulled the inevitable subscription plug on it and went (semi) B/F2P like most of the players predicted since open beta. The buy to players got a meagre compensation for their time, effort and investment... or to put it less nuanced: we got ripped off. That combined with many postponed feature updates was the end of ESO for me.

Oh yeah and lets not forget to mention the quality of combat, animations and 'feedback' of it all... it's worse than Fallout :D Perhaps its just a Bethesda trademark to make it look like 2003 content. This was a completely different engine. Same quirks, same limitations, same clunkiness. Oh yeah: and same single threaded engine. Real cool for an MMO, that.

My biggest problem are open world games like this in general. TES Morrowind? Never finished it. TES oblivion? Never finished it. TES Skyrim? Never finished it. Fallout 3? Never finished it. I love all of them, but I usually explore the world, follow the main quest for a bit, wander of into countless side quests, play it for hundreds of hours until some quest gets permanently stuck and I can't continue even if I'd want to (Skyrim) or I just get bored and never finish the main quest.

I like games like Deus Ex or new Prey more. Game gives you endless possibilities of progression, even on repeated gameplays, but doesn't steer you too far away from main quest. You're forced to follow main quest so I usually finish these games while sticking my nose into every box, corner and crack in the wall.

Only open world game I finished was Witcher 3, and even then I felt the combat system was overrated. Best combat I think I ever remember was Prince of Persia trilogy, specifically Warrior Within on playstation 2, those were some fun times, maybe its just nostalgia, its been many a moon since I played them.

Intersting... for me it's the exact opposite - i love the games where you have to "Investigate" for the quests... it's not apparent and if you dont actively figure it out, you might never finish the game or find the quest at all. Deus ex was very on rails to me (the latest one, the first reboot and the originals were great). For example, in fallout 4 there is a submarine full of chinese ghouls who think the war is still going on... I found it because i randomly saw something weird in the water and decided to go investigate -- little stuff like that makes these games super interesting/rewarding to explore.

Things like Kingdom Come, Oblivion (and expansions), Skyrim, New Vegas etc..

That was a mindblowing experience when i first played oblivion and was like "wait... what the hell am i supposed to do...?? and why are the rats leveling faster than me? Im at level 9 getting taken out by rats because i dont know enough and nothing is telling me anything. This is kind of awesome."
