Later this year, the Brotherhood of Steel returns to Appalachia in search of new technology. The continuation of the story arc started in Steel Dawn will introduce new NPCs, quests, and companions to the West Virginia

Steel Dawn (formerly known as Fractured Steel) is the upcoming sixth major update for Fallout 76. It will feature the return of the Brotherhood of Steel to Appalachia. Steel Dawn is planned to be released after One Wasteland For All.


The Brotherhood of Steel's First Expeditionary Force, led by Paladin Leila Rahmani, finally arrives in Appalachia after just over three months trekking across the country on foot. Sent by High Elder Roger Maxson, the First Expeditionary Force seeks to re-establish the Brotherhood's presence in Appalachia, and to provide assistance to the people living there. As the Vault 76 Resident assists or deters the Brotherhood in their goals, the realities of the returning faction, and how it will interact with others, will become much more apparent.

In September 2020, the decision was made to merge the Steel Dawn introduction plotline with the Fractured Steel update, resulting in the current roadmap positioning.



  1. Daniel Shin: "You've broken your Oath, Paladin. No... That title no longer belongs to you. With your link removed from the Chain, I am the highest ranking officer present. All members of the Appalachian Brotherhood of Steel now answer to me."
  2. Leila Rahmani: "I believe in the Brotherhood of Steel. So much that I would rewrite its customs to lead it on the right path. To a New Brotherhood."
  3. Scribe Valdez's terminal entries; The New Appalachian Brotherhood
  4. Leila Rahmani: "Re-establishing contact with the Elders will only shackle us. Possibly even destroy us. So we must disable this transmitter. Permanently. This is a choice that can never be undone. So tell me. Do you support the growth and outreach of the Appalachian Brotherhood of Steel, under the command of Paladin Leila Rahmani? Or are you beholden to the fearful and outdated mandates of the Elders, to whom our very own Knight Daniel Shin vows his loyalty?"
