Bethesda has already teased plans for Fallout 76 in 2022, which will begin with an alien invasion this spring and end the following winter with “the most hilarious show on Earth.”
Alien Nothing new in Fallout: Evidence of their existence has been in the series since the original game, from strange skeletons to powerful weapons and crashed ships. They’ll soon play a more active role in Invaders From Away’s post-nuclear future, with public events and random encounters this spring where you’ll fight an alien threat from Appalachia struggle.
The Spring Update will also add the ability to earn points for leveling up and unlock bonus points, and launch Fallout 76 Season 8, titled A Better Life Underground.
More public events will be added in the summer, including an arena against mechanical threats. Another new season kicks off in the summer, and Fallout 1st subscribers will be updating their scoreboard progress.
The fall update will add Expeditions: The Pitt, a journey to the ruined city of Pittsburgh that will include new quests, NPCs, enemies, and rewards. Pete isn’t an entirely new location per se, though: Pete was originally released as a Fallout 3 DLC in 2009.
Then in winter, it’s time for what promises to be the liveliest show on Earth: a roadshow called the Nuka World on Tour, with new public events and new regional bosses. The Fall and Winter Updates will also include a new Fallout 76 season.
The announcement didn’t elaborate, but another year of active development is great news for Fallout 76 fans.A release date hasn’t been announced, but you can get a closer look at the vicious alien threat in the spring update Bethesda Net.
