Fallout 76 has come a really long ways since our mixed Fallout 76 review. Bethesda Softworks has stuck with it and released update after update to improve their multiplayer-focused open-world post-apocalyptic RPG massively. Now, Bethesda is releasing the first update from its Fallout 76 2021 roadmap with the new Fallout 76 Locked and Loaded update. Locked and Loaded kicks off Season 4 for Fallout 76 and includes plenty of goodies for players while they wait for the even bigger expansion heading to Fallout 76 this summer.

Fallout 76's Locked and Loaded update includes quite a bit to look forward to, including:

  • A new C.A.M.P. slot for all players to claim and build a second base
  • New S.P.E.C.I.A.L. loadouts to customize and switch between multiple loadouts on the fly
  • Three new locations for Daily Ops and several new game modes
  • Season 4: Cold Steel kicks off with lots of new rewards, challenges, and much more

It's commendable that Fallout 76 continues to improve as it does. There's never been a better time to play than with the Locked and Loaded update release. Fallout 76 is currently available for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC. If you're playing on Xbox and PC, you can even install Fallout 76 through Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Series X|S players get improved performance in Fallout 76 because of FPS Boost. All of this adds up to Fallout 76 actually being one of the best games on Xbox Game Pass.
