Fallout 76's Wastelanders NPC Update Gets Trailer And Release Date

Wastelanders will release on all platforms this April.


Bethesda has revealed a new trailer for Wastelanders, the next major content expansion for Fallout 76. Wastelanders is scheduled to launch on April 7 for all platforms, finally bringing fully-voiced NPCs to the multiplayer-focused RPG. Additionally, Bethesda has revealed plans to release Fallout 76 on Steam.

Wastelanders takes place in the Appalachian mountains and includes a brand-new main mission campaign quest to take on, either on your own or with other players. Like several previous Fallout games, Wastelanders also sees you meet and interact with competing factions, and your choices will determine who ultimately ends up on top.

This new expansion won't cost you anything to play--Wastelanders comes included with Fallout 76 without the need for an additional purchase. Wastelanders will make adjustments to the original Fallout 76 campaign as well, revamping the story with the inclusion of NPCs.

Fallout 76 launched to a pretty rocky start, and Bethesda has been implementing several large content updates since the game's release in order to address player concerns. Prior to Wastelanders, Fallout 76 saw new quests added in Wild Appalachia, a battle royale mode in Nuclear Winter, and challenging team-based raids.

In GameSpot's Fallout 76 review, Edmond Tran wrote, "Bethesda has stated it intends to continue supporting the game for a long time, but at launch, Fallout 76 is a poor experience. There are echoes of the series' admirable qualities, but look past that facade, past the cute Vault Boy animations, past the familiar radio tracks, and you'll find no heart--just an inconsequential wasteland doomed to be nuked over and over again."
