Add-ons in Fallout 76 are different from previous games. With the online nature of the game, add-ons function as a series of updates spanning a certain period of time featuring new content. All of this content is free and is incorporated into the game. Bethesda released a roadmap of Fallout 76 add-ons for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC in 2019 on February 21, 2019.
Wild Appalachia is the first add-on for Fallout 76. Its first release was on March 13, 2019, and its last release was on May 23.
“A mythical beast, a lost generation of scouts, and the strongest brew this side of the wasteland. Welcome to Wild Appalachia – a series of new quests, features, events, crafting systems and more starting on March 12 and appearing over several weeks.”
Wastelanders is the third add-on for Fallout 76. It will be released in the first quarter of 2020.
“Embark on a tale with true choice and consequences in Wastelanders – our biggest and most ambitious update for 76. Wastelanders will include a new main questline, new factions, new events, new features and even more surprises.”
