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.

Originally planned for April 7, 2020, the Wastelanders expansion is now coming to Fallout 76 on April 14, 2020 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and will also make its way onto Steam for the first time.

Like others around the world, we’re dealing with the critical situation that’s currently affecting so many of us. For the safety of everyone, we have transitioned to remote work, and are limiting our in-person interactions.

This has obviously changed the way we work, but rest assured that critical services for all our live games are fully operating.

However, this has affected our ability to do the final testing we need for Wastelanders and we must move the release date a week, from April 7 to April 14. We’ve done everything we can to minimize the delay and can’t wait for everyone to play. A special thanks to all our Private Test Server players for all your help.

We know this is a stressful time, and we can’t thank you enough for all the support you’ve given each other and us. We’re humbled to have such an incredible community that has stuck with us through ups and downs. It means the world to us, especially in times like this.

Fully voiced NPCs bring new life to Appalachia as players embark on a new main quest, forge alliances and manage their reputation with competing factions, and uncover the truth of what's hidden in the mountains.

Some of the major changes coming in Wastelanders include:

  • New Main Quest and Revamped Original Main Quest – Uncover the secrets of West Virginia by playing through an all-new main quest as well as a revamped original main quest line – with friends or solo – starting from the moment you leave Vault 76. New and veteran players alike will take on new missions, explore new locations and fight with (or against) the new faces that have made their long-awaited return to West Virginia.
  • Human NPCs – Befriend or betray new neighbors who have come to rebuild, and experience Appalachia through the eyes of its residents.
  • New Creatures and Gear – Take down newly mutated creatures finding their way to the region and earn the highest tier of weapons and armor.
  • Choices and Reputation – Alter the fates of those you meet with classic dialogue trees. Decisions affect your standing with each faction through an all-new reputation system.

Current Fallout 76 players will not need to purchase any additional content in order to play Wastelanders when it launches. This update is completely free for Fallout 76 owners. Appalachia has changed and a new beginning awaits.

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.
