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

Wastelanders is the third add-on for Fallout 76.

Being the first annual update, the expansion is slated to be massive, fundamentally changing the wasteland.


Set in 2103, one year after the opening of Vault 76 and the eradication of the Scorched Plague, new survivors begin flocking to Appalachia in search of a rumored treasure.[2] As settlers and raiders alike scramble to find it, the residents of Vault 76 must choose sides in the brewing conflict.

Players can embark on a new main quest of choice and consequence, interact with characters and their unique stories, discover the faction settlements of Crater and Foundation, and collect powerful new weapons and armor.


Living human NPCs will be added to the game:






  • Full dialogue system
  • Faction reputation systems
  • New random encounters
  • Companions
