Watch Fallout 76 Wastelander gameplay in action

This weekend at PAX East Bethesda showed off about 17 minutes of Fallout 76 Wastelanders, the free expansion adding NPCs to their multiplayer RPG. Members of the team were on hand to talk along with the footage, noting that NPCs are being incorporated into the main story quests. Along with the fact that Charisma is suddenly an important stat for impressing those NPCs it seems like the release of Wastelanders will be a good excuse to start over with a new character.

In conversations with NPCs like Mort, a ghoul voiced by Jason Mewes (aka Jay of Jay and Silent Bob), you can see there are sometimes more than four dialogue options to choose from. Along with the silent protagonist and the way the camera zooms in during conversations it feels a lot more like Fallout 3 or New Vegas than Fallout 4, which is an interesting choice.
