What you need to know

  • Fallout 76 is introducing Fallout Worlds, customizable servers that'll launch in September.
  • Fallout Worlds allow players to change almost any settings that they want, from fall damage to how the C.A.M.P. works.
  • Custom Worlds are coming for Fallout 1st subscribers, while Public Worlds will be available for everyone.

Bethesda Softworks' ongoing survival twist on Fallout in Fallout 76 continues to see new updates and additional content. Later this year, players will be able to change up practically all the rules, as Fallout 76 is getting customizable servers through Fallout Worlds. Per the announcement, Fallout Worlds are expected to be available in September following an update, bringing private Custom Worlds for Fallout 1st subscribers and chaotic, rotating Public Worlds for everyone.

Almost anything can be changed in a Custom World, such as no longer requiring power to operate a base, removing fall damage, enabling infinite ammo, tweaking the weather and more, with the developers promising that more options will be added after the feature is launched. Public Worlds will function similarly but as a, well, public option, with features altered directly by Bethesda and changing up on a regular basis. Fallout Worlds are available in testing on the Public Test Server today.

The recent Steel Reign update for Fallout 76 brought the final chapter of story content for the Brotherhood of Steel, alongside other features like Legendary Crafting. Alongside numerous other Bethesda titles, Fallout 76 is currently available on Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S console players have the option of enabling 60 FPS through Xbox FPS Boost.
