Fallout 76 has come a long way since it was released in 2018 and for evidence, look no further than the 2021 roadmap, which includes a bevy of future free updates that will expand the multiplayer game with new features.
First come the updates this spring. The Locked and Loaded update will include the ability to select different S.P.E.C.I.A.L. loadouts, additional C.A.M.P. slots, mannequins, presumably for decor and not friendship, and an expansion to Daily Ops, which is the game's challenge system for players who like to spend time in its world regularly. Players who own Fallout 76 on the Bethesda.net launcher can test out all these new features and more in the current iteration of the PTS right now. The team is teasing more to uncover as well. "Additionally, we hope you haven’t packed away all your snow gear just yet as Armor Ace returns, this time in a fierce battle against Commissioner Chaos and the Yukon Five! Season 4 brings all-new rewards to the Scoreboard, from cosmetics, to consumables and everything in-between."
This summer, the Steel Reign update will conclude the Brotherhood of Steel storyline. The update will bring about more quests, locations, NPCs, and "powerful new rewards." Along with that, Legendary Crafting comes to The Wasteland. As for the rest of the year, Bethesda has taken to teasing what's to come with fewer specifics. We've included that below for your theory-crafting.
The winds of change are coming, and with it an evolution to Private Worlds! Stay tuned to future Inside the Vault articles for more information as we get closer to release.
We’re also bringing another expansion to Daily Ops to bring you even more ways to play.
You’re already a legend in the Wasteland but are you truly legendary? Gear up with all new four-star Legendary Weapons and Armor! Then, after you’ve spent a long day out foraging in the Wasteland, come home to your very own C.A.M.P. Pet!
Face off against all new dangers with an all-new out-of-this-world event. Public Challenge: Invaders from Beyond will unite everyone across the server to complete challenges, face off against all-new foes and earn some stellar new rewards.
The Cultists of Appalachia are up to something sinister in a brand-new Seasonal event: The Ritual! Help the cultists in Point Pleasant prepare an exciting and dangerous ritual, and they’ll repay you with unique rewards.
Stay tuned for more updates on Fallout 76 as the year goes on.
