Now, there's a new trailer for Wastelanders, setting the release date for April 7 on all platforms. You can check out the new release date trailer below.
Wastelanders is a free update, adding NPCs back into the world of Fallout alongside new quests, enemies, items and more. The new questline is playable with friends and is available from the moment you start a new character and leave Vault 76. Additionally, if you've been put off by the idea of playing Fallout 76 on PC through the Bethesda Launcher, there's good news. Fallout 76 is coming to Steam on the same day that Wastelanders launches!
If you decide to move from the Bethesdsa launcher to Steam, do note that you can't take any Atoms or your Fallout 1st membership with you. Your in-game items however, can be transferred. There's also bundles of new items that will be available for purchase if you have the standard edition, or for free if you have the Deluxe edition of Fallout 76.
