Fallout 76 is reportedly a Rust-inspired online RPG

Bethesda's recently-announced Fallout 76 is an online role-playing game heavily inspired by the likes of DayZ and Rust, according to a new report on Kotaku.

Three anonymous sources told the site that the survival-based title is something of an 'experimental' affair, and is not a traditional single-player entry in the acclaimed post-apocalyptic franchise. 

As fans will probably have clocked, the title takes its name from Vault 76, which was mentioned in Fallout 3 and 4. 

Kotaku's sources claim that the game evolved from a prototype multiplayer version of Fallout 4, and has changed a lot over the past few years. While Fallout 76 will feature quests and narrative elements, it'll also include various survival and multiplayer-focused mechanics, such as Fallout 4's base-building antics. 

The sources note that the gameplay is 'rapidly changing,' so there's always a chance more stuff will be included.

Fallout 76 is reportedly in development at Bethesda's Maryland and Austin-based offices, the former of which was previously known as BattleCry Studios. 

Bethesda has said that it will share more information on Fallout 76 at E3 next month.
