Fallout 76 Roadmap for 2019 Outlined by Bethesda

For those still playing Fallout 76, here's what you have to look forward to in the coming months.

February 22, 2019

Despite a rough few months after launch for Bethesda and Fallout 76, the developer seems to remain committed to the project for the long haul.

Today, Bethesda outlined the future content roadmap for Fallout 76 while acknowledging the mistakes they have made in the past. Starting on March 12, Fallout 76’s Wild Appalachia content update will start rolling out. Over the course of a few weeks, Wild Appalachia will add new quests, events, and crafting systems. Wild Appalachia will run until May.

Here’s a breakdown of what will come as part of Wild Appalachia:

New Quests: Shear Terror! – Uncover the ‘encryptid’ secrets of Appalachia in a new series of quests and encounters to separate monsters from myths.

New Quests: Ever Upwards – Journey to the deepest reaches of the woods with new stories for the legendary Pioneer Scouts. Earn merit badges, climb the ranks, and earn a customizable backpack for increased utility.

New Features: Legendary Vendor and Scrapping – Locate the mysterious Purveyor to exchange and scrap your unwanted legendary items for new legendary gear. For every star rating on a legendary item you scrap, increase your chances to get the legendary weapon or armor of your dreams.

New Features: C.A.M.P. Decorating, Player Vending, Functional Camera – Use items from your stash to decorate your C.A.M.P. Build vending machines and flag items for sale. Simply set your prices and walk away to continue your adventures in Appalachia, being sure to capture all your favorite memories using the new functional camera. The vending machines do all the work, you just need to count the caps.

New Features: Brewing and Distilling – Go on a new quest to discover the secrets of the forbidden brew Nukashine and bring the party back to your C.A.M.P with new brewing and distilling systems and recipes.

New Seasonal Event: Fasnacht Parade – Chase away Old Man Winter and quicken the coming of spring with the ancient festival of Fasnacht! Join the celebration and complete this new limited-time event to earn unique rewards in the form of festive Fasnacht Masks.

New Game Mode: Survival – This all-new game mode brings a higher-stakes PvP experience with fewer restrictions, increased rewards, and new challenges plus all the original content of Adventure Mode.

Starting in Summer 2019, Fallout 76 will begin the Nuclear Winter series of updates. Nuclear Winter is said to drastically change the way in which Fallout 76 will be played.


Here’s what Bethesda has outlined at the moment for Nuclear Winter:

New Game Mode: Nuclear Winter – An entirely new way to play Fallout 76, completely changing the rules of the Wasteland.

New Vault Raids: Vaults 96 and 94 Opening – For our most seasoned players, test your strength in all new high-level group Vault Raids.

New Feature: Legendary Players – An all-new prestige system will allow players above level 50 to become Legendary, resetting their characters with all new more powerful abilities.

Lastly, Wastelanders is the final content update planned to arrive later in 2019. It will also include new quests and features, but Bethesda is still remaining quiet at the moment on other specifics of what will arrive in Wastelanders.

Fallout 76 is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
