With all the news and trailers coming out of E3 this year we almost missed the new update for Fallout 76 that adds new Human NPCs, Quest changes and more.
Appalachia is getting even bigger with two brand-new, game-changing (and free) new updates, coming to Fallout 76 this year.
Teased in our 2019 roadmap, Wastelanders and Nuclear Winter were officially revealed with gameplay trailers during the Bethesda E3 2019 Showcase. Watch the trailers for both updates and find out more about them below.
People are returning to Appalachia in the massive free Wastelanders update! Year one of Fallout 76 was all about the opening of Vault 76 and players settling the Wasteland. In Year two, other humans are returning to reclaim Appalachia. That’s right – human NPCs are coming to Fallout 76! This huge update introduces a new main quest full of choices and consequences, and a lot of memorable characters with unique stories for you to interact with.
Factions of Raiders and Settlers aim to make the world their own and claim a rumored fortune. Who you side with is up to you, and your choices will determine their fates. Both the Settlers and the Raiders will present you with unique companions, stories and plenty of new weapons and armor to earn. Wastelanders will fundamentally change the way you experience Fallout 76, and it’s set to arrive in fall of 2019.
(NUCLEAR) WINTER IS COMING
All of the nukes being dropped on Appalachia have given life to a massive nuclear storm, and you’re stuck in the middle of it. Nuclear Winter is upon us, and this is the setting of Fallout 76’s new 52-player PvP mode. Nuclear Winter handles the battle royale genre in a way that only Fallout can, and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. From Perks and Nukes to Wild Appalachian creatures and C.A.M.P.s, Nuclear Winter is a very S.P.E.C.I.A.L. take on a familiar gameplay mode.
Scavenge for weapons, supplies and nukes as you face off against your fellow players in the fight for the right to become the Overseer of Vault 51. Will you be the last one standing? Find out this week in a free pre-beta sneak peek at Nuclear Winter. Get all the details on Nuclear Winter here
