Bethesda has announced today that the long-awaited Wastelanders expansion is launching for Fallout 76 on April 7, 2020. Wastelanders will be free on all platforms and will coincide with the release of Fallout 76 on Steam. The Wastelanders expansion introduces NPCs into the game in addition to new questlines, locations, enemies, weapons and more.
The Fallout 76 Wastelanders expansion was announced at E3 in 2019 and was due to be released last year. However, it was delayed into 2020. Today’s announcement finally gives players a date to look forward to.

The introduction of Fallout 76 Wastelanders will see Bethesda “begin phasing out the Tricentennial Edition of Fallout 76.” Instead, players will be able to purchase the Wastelanders Edition or Wastelanders Deluxe Edition.
On April 7, when the expansion launches, Fallout 76 will be released on Steam. Both editions of the Wastelanders version of the game will be available to purchase in addition to Atoms, Fallout 1st and other content.
Players who own Fallout 76 through Bethesda.net are not able to transfer Atoms or Fallout 1st between that platform and Steam. Items purchased from the Atomic Shop are shared between Steam and Bethesda.net.
Fallout 76 Wastelanders launches on April 7, 2020, for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
