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.

It’s Bombs Drop Day in Appalachia, and everyone is invited to join our weeklong celebration that includes a Fallout 1st Limited Preview, in-game events, and more. As you read on, you can also check out a new trailer for the Steel Dawn Update, as well as a few details about the quests it will bring to the game. Finally, everyone’s favorite Protectrons are returning to Helvetia for Fasnacht Parade on Halloween weekend.

New Questlines Begin with Steel Dawn

Ad Victoriam! The Brotherhood of Steel is planning to return to Appalachia this December with our Steel Dawn Update for Fallout 76. Led by Paladin Rahmani, this Brotherhood outfit’s objectives currently remain unclear. However, they will certainly be looking to you for a debrief on the current state of Appalachia, and to lend a helping hand with their endeavors. You will learn much more about the Brotherhood as you take on a variety of new quests that are coming with the Steel Dawn update—but that is only the beginning. You will be able to explore the story further in 2021 with even more Brotherhood of Steel quests that we are planning to release with future updates.

Along with the new quests, the Steel Dawn Update will bring new NPCs, new locations, and new gear to the game. It will also add features, like C.A.M.P. Shelters, a host of rewards, including weapons, armor, and C.A.M.P. Plans, the return of the Holiday Scorched Seasonal Event, and a variety of additional gameplay improvements. If you own a PC copy of Fallout 76 through, you can head to the Public Test Server right now to join us in playtesting and sharing your feedback on everything mentioned above. If you do, be sure to post your thoughts in the PTS forum.

You not only survived the infamous day that the bombs fell, but you’ve thrived after starting a new life in Appalachia. Now, it’s time to celebrate! Until October 26, anyone and everyone can head into the Wasteland to experience the entirety of Fallout 76 completely for free. We’re also sharing a look at some of our Fallout 1st benefits during this time with the Fallout 1st Limited Preview.

You will also be able to unlock free items for your C.A.M.P., like the Mechanic’s Wallpaper and Floor.

Haunt Helvetia on Halloween!

Halloween is just around the corner, which means it’s almost time to dust off your creepiest costumes and masks, and then head out for some tricks and treats. What better way to show off your most frightening, fun, or quirky attire than by joining a festive parade and marching around town with all of your Appalachian pals (and maybe some robots, too)? That’s right, the Fastnacht Parade Seasonal Event is returning this year on Halloween weekend!

Starting October 29, you can head to Helvetia every hour on the hour to speak with the Master of Ceremonies and begin the event. Join other Dwellers to find and assist dutiful Protectrons with their Fasnacht party prep, including activities like playing music, selecting the perfect decorations, exterminating pests, and more! Help the bots complete their tasks before time runs out, and they will line up at the center of town to begin the parade. Guard them on their route, and you’ll have increased chances to earn rare rewards for each Protectron that makes it to the end, including a wide variety of festive Fasnacht Masks that you can trade. Here are the event dates and times:

Fasnacht Parade Event Details
  • Event Start: The Master of Ceremonies will appear in Helvetia at 12:00 p.m. ET on October 29, and Fasnacht Parade begins every hour starting at 1:00 p.m. ET.
  • Event End: The final parade will start at 12:00 p.m. ET on November 2.

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.
