Fallout 76 Wastelanders update will add human NPCs and Nuclear Winter Battle Royale this autumn

“The team kept working on it and you kept playing it” said Todd Howard of Fallout 76, as he acknowledged the fact that Fallout 76 was a bit trash at launch and that… well, Fallout fans are pretty persistent.

Fallout 76: Wastelanders is the next step in the game’s future, introducing human NPCs into the game for you to interact with through full dialogue trees, a new quest line with choice and consequence as you choose between different factions.


A new game mode will also be introduced called Nuclear Winter. Yup, it’s a Battle Royale mode, but will all of the Fallout 76 scavenging and camp building included.

A free trial of Fallout 76 will be available from 10th to 17th June across PS4, Xbox One and PC, with a sneak peak of Nuclear Winter included.
