Fallout 76 was one of the major video game launches of 2018, and people were expecting great things from Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic role-playing game. Sadly, Fallout 76 turned out to be a huge disappointment at launch due to the lack of single player content, with the game’s multiplayer gameplay not really cutting the mustard.
However, game creators Bethesda have continued to add to the game since its launch a couple of years ago, and a major update for the game titled “Wastelanders” came out earlier this year. The Wastelanders update is free for current owners of Fallout 76.
This added an extensive single player campaign aside from the game’s multiplayer, making Fallout 76 feel more like earlier entries in the series such as Fallout 3 and Fallout 4.
And those who enjoy Fallout 76’s single player story will be happy to know that a major faction featured in Fallout 4 is coming to the game in 2020. This is none other than the Brotherhood of Steel, which will be arriving in Fallout 76 this year as part of the “Steel Dawn Update” as Bethesda recently explained on its website.
The update will add several single player quests to the game pertaining to the Brotherhood of Steel, letting you help the brotherhood carry out its goals in the game.
Bethesda did not reveal any other information relating to these quests, but does mention that even more Brotherhood of Steel quests will be added to the game in 2021 via more updates.
Aside from adding the Brotherhood of Steel to the game, Bethesda’s Steel Dawn Update will also add additional gear, new non-player characters and locations to the game’s world of Appalachia. Bethesda will also be improving Fallout 76’s gameplay in several ways with this new update, a release date for which is yet to be specified.
Those still playing Fallout 76 (or new players to the game) will surely welcome this new update, while it’s also a great thing that Bethesda is still actively supporting Fallout 76, a game which despite getting a poor critical reception on release is still played by many. It would be a good thing, then, if this upcoming update finally turns Fallout 76 into the game it should have been when it arrives later this year.
