Fallout 76 Wastelanders Expansion – What You Need to Know

After several delays and a hack that stole player inventories, Fallout 76 Wastelanders has finally launched, and it changes the game significantly by adding new NPCs, new factions, a return to Fallout 3-style dialog, a whole host of new events, challenges, locations, items, and enemies. This is what you need to know about the Wastelanders expansion.

How Big is Fallout 76 Wastelanders Update?

Wastelanders is live on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation, and depending on your platform, you’ll need anywhere between 54 and 70GB of free storage space. It might sound like a lot – it is – and it’ll take some time to download, but remember; you’re getting a new storyline, new sub-quests, and a lot of new goodies to go with them.

Starting Fallout 76 Wastelanders

When you start off playing Wastelanders, you’ll begin with the Wayward story quest somewhere near Vault 76. This leads into a full level 20 quest line that starts at Sutton. You’ll learn about the 2 new factions – the Raiders and the Settlers – and that they have come to Appalachia to seek prosperity but end up at odds with one another. At this point, you’ll get to sample each faction, but down the line you’ll have to choose which to join. This choice, later in the story, will affect your relationship with several of the new NPCs, so pay attention and think carefully before you make your choice.

Who are the Raiders in Fallout 76 Wastelanders?

The Raiders are “survivors that fled Appalachia.” They have now returned to claim what they believe is theirs and have built a base off operations – known as Crater – at the crashed space station. When you first run into them, they will be hostile, but if you play your cards right you can win them over and gain access to their base and wares.

Who are the Settlers in Fallout 76 Wastelanders?

The Settlers are from Washington D.C. and came to Appalachia because they heard there was land to be had. They caravanned together and, upon arriving, they repurposed existing structures at Spruce Knob to construct their new home base, the Foundation. The Settlers are the friendlier of the two new factions and when you first meet them, they will give you’re your first daily quest.

A New Dialog Tree Between Factions

As you complete quests and build a relationship with each faction, you’ll eventually ally with one or the other. During this time, you’ll encounter dialog trees with contextual and SPECIAL-dependent responses that you’re probably used to from previous Fallout games, most notably Fallout 3. If you pick the right responses at the right time, you’ll unlock new vendors and utilities within your given faction, but you can also improve your reputation by completing quests and challenges. The choice is yours, so choose your responses wisely.

Two New Allies Are in Town

Starting at level 10, you’ll meet to new unique allies that feature their own quest lines and romance options. You’ll find them in Ash Heap and Mire, and once you win them over – if you win them over – they will actually join you at your camp and on your journey.

With all this said, there’s lots to do, lots to see, lots of decisions to make, and it finally looks like Fallout 76 has turned into the game it was meant to be. Stay tuned for updates on the Wastelanders expansion, as we’ll have more on this impressive update in the coming days.
