Explore Appalachia in Fallout 76 in a completely new way starting today with the worldwide launch of the Wastelanders expansion. All Xbox One players who own the base game can download Wastelanders for free right now. Wastelanders takes things back to Fallout’s roots with rich NPCs, dialogue trees with choices and consequences, and a brand-new main storyline to enjoy. If you don’t already own Fallout 76, you can grab the Fallout 76: Wastelanders version of the game on the Microsoft Store and receive every update to date.
Will You Be My Neighbor?
A year has passed since the door to Vault 76 slid open, allowing its inhabitants out into the Appalachian wilds. A year of exploring, building, hunting, and some friendly competition among the wasteland’s survivors. But you’re not the only people making their homes in post-apocalyptic West Virginia. In the past year, settlers have returned to the area, establishing their own hubs of civilization. They have claimed their own chunks of the world and set up camp, and now it’s your time to go forth and meet them. How you choose to interact with these new characters will have lasting impacts on the world and your story.
What’s New in Wastelanders?
Wastelanders injects some of the strengths of Bethesda Game Studios in Fallout 76 with the robust new reputation and dialogue systems. These give the world even more depth and add a level of meaning and importance to your interactions with the NPCs, some of whom will even become your Allies. Allies will join you at your C.AM.P. and give you quests, in addition to a handful of other benefits.
Wastelanders also introduces new enemies, weapons, armor, C.A.M.P. items, and so much more. With two exciting new factions, a handful of new locations to explore, new quest and event types, and a host of memorable characters, Wastelanders packs in hours of content for you to enjoy whether you’re new to Fallout 76 or a seasoned veteran. There are no level requirements for the Wastelanders content, so you can hop in and get started at any point.
The Wastelanders expansion is free for all Fallout 76 owners, but for those who haven’t jumped into Fallout 76 yet, you can pick up either the Fallout 76: Wastelanders edition of the game, which includes the base game content and the Wastelanders expansion, or the Fallout 76: Wastelanders Deluxe Edition, which includes the full game and a ton of in-game cosmetic goodies that you can also get in Faction-specific bundles.
We’ll see you in Appalachia!
