While 2018 does not sound to be too far away, the age of that time to now truly shines when you compare Fallout 76 from each era. With many anticipating a truly thriving world set within the Fallout universe was met with Bethesda dropping the ball on most of its promises for first multiplayer experience for the IP. But, things are changing for the best over the past couple of years.
