A fan made Fallout 76 The live-action concept trailer impressed Bethesda. Video director Brian Curtin managed to squeeze a lot of iconography from the Fallout franchise into the two-and-a-half-minute trailer.
The official Fallout Twitter account posted Curtin’s video and praised it, saying it left the team “speechless”. There are many Fallout 76 references in the trailer, such as the Power Armor and Pip-Boy items. Throughout the video, many lines of dialogue from the game can be heard.

Roger Maxon, founder of the Brotherhood of Steel said, “I know most of you love America, but America has failed. It’s not because of its citizens, no, its leaders have let us down. Their failure nearly destroyed all of humanity…”
Fallout 76 DJ Julie can be heard saying, “I know what it’s like to lose family and friends…but there’s one thing that always kept me going, that always meant something for me… this music. The video ends with Scribe Grant’s Plea, a voice tape from the game, and shows someone picking her up and putting her in their Pip-Boy.
Fallout 76 had a rocky launch, but the game has bounced back with lots of content this year exploring post-apocalyptic West Virginia, like the Invaders from Beyond and The Pitt expansions. While the next Fallout game is not yet in the works, Bethesda’s Todd Howard has said that Fallout 5 is the next project for the company after the delivery of The Elder Scrolls VI. Right now a Fallout The TV show is in production also at Amazon.
