Fallout 76 is an online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. Work together, or not, to survive. Under the threat of nuclear annihilation, you'll experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe.

Fallout 76 is an online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. Work together, or not, to survive. Under the threat of nuclear annihilation, you'll experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe.

Reclamation Day, 2102. Twenty-five years after the bombs fall, you and your fellow Vault Dwellers — chosen from the nation's best and brightest — emerge into post-nuclear America. Play solo or join together as you explore, quest, build, and triumph against the wasteland's greatest threats.


Humans are on their way back to Appalachia in our upcoming Wastelanders update but, of course, not everyone was prepared with the same exceptional training that you received inside Vault 76. Banding together with other like-minded folks and working toward common goals has given these groups a means of survival and purpose as they find new homes in the Wasteland.

The Settlers and the Raiders are two major factions you will encounter as you quest around Appalachia after the Wastelanders update, and we’d like to give you a bit of spoiler-free background on each.

The Settlers

Led by Paige, the former head of a Construction Workers Union in Washington D.C., the Settlers are a hard-working and industrious crew, primarily made up of people who are well-versed in how to construct and run a city. After hearing that Appalachia might offer some refuge from the trials of the Wasteland, they made their way into the area in hopes of finding a safe place to begin rebuilding. They broke ground at Spruce Knob, began repurposing its existing buildings, cleared the surrounding trees, and a fledgling city has begun taking shape, which they’ve dubbed “Foundation”. These Settlers may know their way around construction equipment, but they have no idea what challenges you and others have faced in Appalachia during the past year. It may be mutually beneficial to seek them out to share your experiences and lend a helping hand toward their efforts.

The Raiders

The Raiders are no strangers to Appalachia. At one time they even called it home. After they caught wind that people were returning to the land they once claimed for themselves, the Raiders and their leader Meg decided to come back and put a stop to anyone who would dare snatch up their rightful territory. They’ve set up a rather formidable base of operations at the Crashed Space Station that they call “Crater” and outsiders who drop by unannounced aren’t going to get a warm welcome. If you’re looking to arrange an introduction to Meg and her gang, you will need to be crafty.

At both Foundation and Crater, you will find completely revamped locations to explore, new vendors to trade with, crafting areas, and plenty of people to talk to. However, your interactions with those people will depend on your reputation with them and how they view you. Join us again next week for a look at the new Reputation system coming for Factions in Wastelanders.

Key Features:

  • You will Emerge! Multiplayer finally comes to the epic, open-world RPG. Create your character with the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system and forge a path in an untamed wasteland with hundreds of locations. Whether you journey alone or with friends, a new Fallout adventure awaits. 
  • Mountain Splendorland! All-new graphics, lighting and landscape technology brings to life six distinct West Virginia regions. From the forests of Appalachia to the noxious crimson expanses of the Cranberry Bog, each region offers its own risks and rewards. Post-nuclear America has never looked so beautiful!
  • A New American Dream! Use the all-new Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform (C.A.M.P.) to build and craft anywhere in the world. Your C.A.M.P. provides much-needed shelter, supplies, and safety. You can even set up shop to trade goods with other survivors. Beware that not everyone will be neighborly.
  • The Power of the Atom! Go it alone or with fellow survivors to unlock access to the ultimate weapon: nuclear missiles. This destruction also creates a high-level zone with rare and valuable resources. Do you protect or unleash the power of the atom? The choice is yours.
  • B.E.T.A. (Break-It Early Test Application) Access! Pre-order and get access to the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A.

Fallout 76 is currently available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
