Fallout 76's Locked and Loaded update is coming April 27, PTS opens tomorrow

Locked and Loaded, the next update to Fallout 76, is coming in April, but you can try it out via the Public Test Service starting tomorrow.

Starting March 12, you will be able to dive into the Fallout 76 PTS to try Locked and Loaded, which is slated to arrive on April 27.

For those of you who play Fallout 76 on PC through Bethesda.net, the developers will be looking for feedback, and bug reporting on new features, like S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Loadouts, C.A.M.P. Slots, the Daily Ops expansion, and more.

You can also earn a new PTS-themed Pennant for your C.A.M.P. but make sure you play at least one hour per day on three different days while the PTS is online.

The previous update to the game was Steel Dawn, which was released in December 2020. This is the first chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel questline and expands on the Wastelanders update, adding new NPC’s, new locations to visit, C.A.M.P. Shelters, new weapons and armor to earn, and more.

Alongside the return of the Brotherhood, Steel Dawn introduced a new Season, and the S.C.O.R.E. board as well as many additional improvements to the game.

If you've never tried Fallout 76 and are an Xbox Games Pass member, the game will be added to the service tomorrow, March 12.
