The Latest FALLOUT 76 Trailer Makes Excellent Use Of The Beach Boys

Wouldn't it be nice, indeed.

Heads up: Bethesda rolled out a new trailer for Fallout 76 over the weekend.

Look, I know this trailer is a live-action/CGI hybrid that doesn't feature a single second of actual Fallout 76 gameplay, but come on: how do you watch that and not get excited to head back in the wasteland?

Maybe it's because I've already sunk several hours into the game and know it's a blast; maybe it's because I've been playing Red Dead Redemption 2 all weekend and its grim drudgery has me fiending for something a bit more fun; maybe I'm just a sucker for a well-executed Beach Boys needle drop. Whatever the case may be, the trailer above has me chomping at the bit to get back in the game.

Which, by the way, PS4 owners (who pre-ordered Fallout 76) can do this Tuesday, thanks to the forthcoming Beta experience. Team BMD will be all up in there with the rest of you animals, learning the ropes of Bethesda's latest before the final version of the game rolls out on November 14th. At that time, we have plans to deliver some...unique review coverage for you. Stay tuned on that front, and do say "hi" if you happen to spot any of us storming around the hills of West Virginia on Tuesday.
