Fallout 76 is coming to Steam on April 7 with the game’s Wastelanders expansion

Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 76 is coming to Valve’s Steam platform, bringing the game outside of Bethesda’s Betehsda.net client for the first time. This release will arrive on the same day as Fallout 76’s Wastelanders expansion, a free update which will ass new questlines, NPCs and other content to the game. 

The headline feature of Fallout 76: Wastelanders is that fully voiced NPCs will be brought into the world of Fallout 76, bringing more life into the game’s world while offering a new main quest and other story content. The lack of NPC characters was a major downside for Fallout 76, leaving the game world with less character than previous entries in the Fallout series. 

While Fallout 76’s Wastelanders expansion is free, fans of the game will be able to purchase two faction-themed packs that add additional content to the game. Most of this content is cosmetic, giving characters items and armour sets which are themes to the game’s Settlers and Raiders respectively. 

Bethesda has confirmed that PC players will be unable to transfer their Fallout 76 Atoms and Fallout 1st membership balances between the game’s Steam and Betehsda.net versions. However, items that were purchased through the game’s Atomic Shop are sharable across both PC platforms.
