Bethesda was full of updates on current games, which was expected, but the developer/publisher had surprises to show this year at E3.
Fallout 76 News
Wastelanders will be the game’s next significant expansion. The update will give players common things like new quests and gear, but the big parts involve how the story will form. Human NPCs will be added along with dialogue trees. This will bring the classic Fallout experience to Fallout 76.
A battle royal mode called Nuclear Winter will bring the vastly popular PvP mode into Bethesda’s online Fallout experience. A 52 player match that will have plenty of threats outside of players.
You can try both of these updates from June 10 – 17. A full release date has not been set except for some time this fall.
