About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

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.

Free Play Days

Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can enjoy the Fallout 76 experience for free during Free Play Days. Until June 16, 2021, play the game for free and carry over your progress by purchasing the Base or Deluxe edition of the game — both on sale for a limited time.

Coming Storm

From June 15 to July 6, 2021, assist the Brotherhood of Steel during the Coming Storm event. Complete challenges and earn special loot leading up to the Steel Reign questline.

Steel Reign

Save Appalachia from an unknown threat — and the Brotherhood of Steel from themselves — in Steel Reign, a questline coming July 7 in a free update for all Fallout 76 players.

From the previous Steel Dawn questline, we learned that the Appalachian Brotherhood is stretched thin as they struggle to protect the region. Travel to new locations, uncover new secrets and navigate the rift between Paladin Rahmani and Knight Shin to shape the future of the Brotherhood.

Expeditions: The Pitt

Prepare to go beyond the borders of Appalachia with Expeditions: The Pitt. Players take a trip to post-nuclear Pittsburgh, first introduced in Fallout 3. What awaits you? Find out when Expeditions: The Pitt arrives in Fallout 76 in 2022.


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, backwards compatible with Xbox Series X|S and PS5.
