Fallout 76 Wastelanders Update pushed due to COVID-19 Outbreak

Fallout 76’s Wastelanders update has been pushed by a week due to the coronavirus pandemic. Bethesda recently issued a statement suggesting that current COVID-19 situation has made it unable to perform final testing and the Wastelanders update will go on floors on 14 April instead of 7 April.

Bethesda has said, “We’ve done everything we can to minimize the delay and can’t wait for everyone to play. A special thanks to all out Private Test Server players for all your help.” Fallout 76 is also scheduled to launch on Steam on April 7 along with the Wastelanders update. But, it’s currently unclear whether that will happen considering the delay.
The story of Fallout 76 will continue with the Wastelanders update. The new NPCs rolling into Appalachia will be Settlers and Raiders, and the story revolving around them will take place after the scorchbeasts (the terrible flying mutant monsters) have been banished. This is the groundwork for a new main questline where you, the player, choose a side. Wastelanders will add two new camps for each faction, too: the Foundation for the Settlers and the Crater for the Raiders. Wastelanders is said to contain the ‘Cult of the Mothman’ as well.

The Wastelanders update will bring a range of new content to the game, including a new main quest, human NPCs with full dialogue trees, new weapons and gear, and more. The game will also get two new events with the update.
