Amid the flurry of news about Fallout 76 today is the reveal of the much-anticipated multiplayer RPG’s box art, at least for Xbox One. Bethesda shared an image of the box art, which shows the Power Armor T-51 helmet. Sunshine is hitting the front, which may be a reference to how players will emerge from Vault 76 on Reclamation Day to save America. The box art’s straightforward, no-nonsense look is refreshing. The stripped down presentation that focuses exclusively on the helmet is striking by itself and catches your eye despite the lack of popping colors. I like it.
Presumably this is the final box art that will apply also to the PlayStation 4 and PC editions, but if it’s not, we’ll update this post again. We’ll also add the PS4 and PC box art images when they’re made available.
In other news about the Power Armor helmet, a life-size version of it is included with Fallout 76’s collector’s edition. The wearable helmet includes a functional headlamp and voice modulation device. Aside from that, the Power Armor set also includes a glow-in-the-dark map and figurines that can be put on that map.
Fallout 76 is launching in November for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It’s set in West Virginia before the events of every prior Fallout game. Unlike other entries in the series, it’s an always-online, multiplayer-focused game. You can also play it solo.
