The fan-made Fallout 76 live-action concept trailer impressed Bethesda. The video’s director, Brian Curtin, managed to capture much of the Fallout franchise’s iconography in his two-and-a-half-minute trailer.
The official Fallout Twitter account posted a video of Curtin, praising him for leaving the team “speechless.” There are many references to Fallout 76 in the trailer, including power armor and Pip-Boy items. Throughout the video, you can hear many lines of dialogue from the game.
