The Wastelanders update for Fallout 76 will be released on April 7, the same day the game arrives on Steam.

The large, free update for Fallout 76 was originally slated for a fall release last year.

You will be able to enjoy the Wastelanders expansion starting April 7 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC through Bethesda.net. The game will also arrive on Steam the same day, and Wastelanders will be available to anyone who purchases the standard or deluxe editions of the game.

In addition to introducing fully voiced NPCs to the world of Fallout 76, the update includes a new storyline,  locations, enemies, new weapons, a new reputation system and more.

Alongside the free update, Bethesda is offering two Faction-themed content bundles, as well as a combination bundle. This purchasable content comes with exclusive cosmetic and C.A.M.P. items.

Raider Content Bundle

  • Raider C.A.M.P. – Change the look of your Vault-Tec C.A.M.P. deployable to give it a Raider edge
  • Raider Stash Box – Raider-themed Stash box for your C.A.M.P.
  • Raider Faction Flag – New flag for your C.A.M.P. that show off your allegiance to Crater
  • Raider Pathfinder Outfit – Look like another resident of Crater with this outfit (includes mask and bandana)
  • Raider Conquest Loot Bag – Raider-style Loot bag, complete with skull
  • Raider Pillager Backpack – A Raider-style backpack
  • Raider Marauder Power Armor Skin – Unique appearance for your Power Armor based on the Crater Raiders

Settler Content Bundle

  • Garden Truckbed Trailer – A small planter for your crops when no dirt is available (buildable in your C.A.M.P.)
  • Settler C.A.M.P. – Change the look of your Vault-Tec C.A.M.P. deployable to give it a Settler appearance
  • Settler Stash Box – Settler-themed Stash box for your C.A.M.P.
  • Settler Faction Flag – New flag for your C.A.M.P. that show off your allegiance to Foundation
  • Settler Mechanic Outfit – Look like another resident of Foundation with this outfit (includes hat)
  • Settler Traveler Loot Bag – Settler-style Loot bag that looks like a travel case

Raider and Settler Content Bundle

  • Includes both sets of the items listed above

If you don’t own the base game, you can pick up the Fallout 76: Wastelanders edition of the game, or the Fallout 76: Wastelanders Deluxe Edition, which includes the full game and all content noted above.  This means the current Tricentennial bundle will be phased out.

Both editions will also be available for purchase on Steam. If you already have Fallout 76 on Bethesda.net, you will not be able to transfer your Atoms or Fallout 1st membership balance between Bethesda.net and Steam, because Atoms earned are specific to one or the other platform.

However, items you have purchased through the Atomic Shop will be shared across both PC platforms.
