Fallout 76 Wastelanders
Coming in Fall 2019, Wastelanders is a massive, free update that fundamentally changes how you experience Fallout 76. One year after the opening of Vault 76, other humans are returning to reclaim Appalachia. Factions of Settlers and Raiders, each with a host of human NPCs, dialogue with choice, and new quests, aim to make the world their own and claim a rumored fortune. Embark on a new main quest of choice and consequence, interact with characters and their unique stories, discover faction settlements, and collect powerful new weapons and armor. Your choices decide their fates.

Nuclear Winter is a uniquely-Fallout 52-player PvP Battle Royale mode, free for Fallout 76 players. Nukes have set the world ablaze and the battle to claim your spot as Overseer of Vault 51 has begun – will you be the last one standing or be consumed by the ring of fire? Rank up, unlock exclusive perks and build your C.A.M.P. to weather the storm in true Fallout fashion. Scavenge for weapons, Power Armor, and even nukes to take on other players and the creatures of Appalachia to earn unique cosmetic rewards. Any XP or Caps earned in Nuclear Winter also carry over to Adventure Mode or Survival Mode. Join in for an exclusive pre-beta sneak peek starting June 10.

The first ever free trial week for Fallout 76 begins June 10 and runs through June 17. During that time, Fallout 76 will be free to play for all Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players. Experience all that Appalachia has to offer, including the full breadth of Wild Appalachia content, Survival Mode, and a Sneak Peek at the newly-announced Nuclear Winter.
