When the Fallout 76 Wastelander’s Expansion launched, it came with some new (and much-needed) NPCs, but it also came with a weird bug that allowed NPCs to loot your corpse and steal whatever weapon you were using when you met your untimely demise. This bug, as it’s being called, was discovered by players mid-event who would respawn just to find their weapon and all its ammo nowhere to be found… until they saw the NPC around the corner using their weapon.
Honestly, it feels like this was a feature built into the Wastelanders expansion to make it a little more interesting, and it really did just that. It might be troubling for some, leading folks to complain that they don’t want to use their favorite weapon in events, but it’s also a bit amusing and – to be honest...
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
The new trailer of Fallout 76: Wastelanders is presenting what we love most about the game: lots of guns, explosions, and a lot of enemies to kill. As the next significant expansion for Fallout 76, Bethesda is adding new NPCs, more quests. The msot important part of all? It will free for anyone who already owns the game.
The trailer showcases some of the main story plots. It seems that we will face a lot of cults who are up for a fight. We have a lot of figures in the game, but what we need are more humans, which are very rare at the moment. There is a small possibility that the expansion will bring buried treasures, which will reward you greatly if you invest the time in searching for them.
We will have...
It was early February 2020 that we found out Fallout 76 Wastelanders was going to launch on April 7th, but there has been another delay and that isn’t happening. Word comes directly from Bethesda with the @BethesdaStudios official Twitter account via a typed and scanned (probably from someone’s kitchen) letter:

When is Fallout 76 Wastelanders Launching?
It looks like Bethesda has had to push back the launch of the
Wastelanders expansion by a week, citing issues with employees working from
humbled to have such an incredible community that has stuck with us through ups
and downs. It means the world to us, especially in times like this.”
Of course, this...
Bethesda has finally announced that the Wastelanders DLC
will launch for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on April 7, 2020. The big expansion will
comes as a free DLC – the least Bethesda can do for us at this point – and will
bring fully voiced NPCs to Applalachia along with a new quest and new
sidequests. This DLC also represents the Fallout 76’s debut on the Steam store.
Wastelander’s main quest will put you in the role of “uncovering
the secrets of West Virgina” while the original main quest has been completely
revamped. New locations will make their debut as will new missions – something that
will keep even veteran players engaged. The cool part about the new NPCs is
that you’ll be able to interact with them and decide whether or not they serve
a role in your gameplay. Want them to be your friend, go...
That Fallout 76 hack last month sure did set a lot of
players back. Three people here at Addicted to Play even lost their entire
inventories, but it looks like there’s finally a fix in place. The problem is
that it’s not as simple as just replacing lost gear, and Bethesda wants to make
right on its promise to “compensate players for their losses” at some point
down the road. Well, that point has arrived, but the fix is far from simple, so
don’t expect your inventory to be restored tomorrow.
The fix in place was revealed late last week by redditors
Boavisteiro and Jedediahjedi, and believe it or not, you’re going to get a
clone of your pre-hack character. In an e-mail sent to impacted players,
Once restored, this character will have the entire inventory of items, gear,...
UPDATE: Fallout 76 Wastelanders has officially launched, so once you're done here, head on over to check out what you need to know about the Wastelanders update!
The free expansion, Wastelanders, for Fallout 76 was delayed
until the first three months of 2020, and while we still don’t know exactly when
it will be released, we’re getting a fresh look into what’s to come. This
includes a look at the two know bases – “Foundation” for the Settlers and the
crashed Valiant-1 space station for the Raiders.
Raiders – The Valiant-1 Space Station aka “Crater”
This cool-looking base is located in the Toxic Valley Region
and is heavily protected. This is one of those places that most people with common
sense would just avoid. You don’t just walk into Crater, it seems. The...
A long, long time ago, long before nukes tore the hell out
of the world that is Fallout 76, Watoga was a city of the future, complete with
automated parking garagesand robotic maids. Okay, we’re not 100-percent on
those robotic maids, but the automated parking garages were the real deal. These
days, it’s more of a raider-filled habitat with probably as much mystery as
history, and it’s set to come to Fallout 76 as part of the Wastelanders
expansion in the very near future.
"Watoga, The City of the Future, envisions a bustling, walkable metropolis where the streets are clear of illegally parked automobiles, traffic and hit-and-run accidents," Bethesda says.
"The city is built on top of a massive series of automated parking garage systems which allow citizens to drop off their cars and store...
Fallout 76 was, arguably, the worst game of 2018 and,
despite some of the bad games released this year, it’s on track to take the
title two years in a row. When it was launched in 2018, it was plagued with
problems that included buggy and unresponsive servers, random crashes –
especially when launching multiple nukes – and it even lacked many of the
features that Fallout players wanted. And, let’s not forget about when the
collector’s editions launched with nylon bags instead of canvas bags or the
leaking of person information. You would think that Bethesda would listen to the
community and make the game what it’s supposed to be; what fans wanted it to
be. Instead, Bethesda has proceeded to make the game worse.
How could it honestly get worse? Well, instead of adding the
features and fixes players wanted, Bethesda...
While there won’t be new NPCs coming as part of patch 11 for
Fallout 76, there will still be some pretty significant changes. Those changes
are why the patch has been delayed by at least a week, if not more, to sometime
in “mid-July.’ Highlights of the patch will include an improved new-play
experience to help make it easier on newcomers. This will include higher disease
resistance and reduced travel price for those under level 15 and level 25,
respectively. On top of this, Challenger rewards for those under level 25 are
also being improved and certain areas of the Ash Heap, Savage Divide, and Toxic
Valley regions – the areas you encounter first as you venture beyond the starting
area – will be toned down to include easier encounters to help smooth out the
Bethesda is also promising to bring improvements...
