Fallout 76: Wastelanders was revealed back at E3 2019 but has since been delayed a number of time. Bethesda teased that some random characters and a reputation system would be added, but it was unclear what the scope of the changes would be. Today, the developer released a launch trailer for Wastelanders, confirming that it was going to launch on April 14 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4.
It's sort of unbelievable that Bethesda launched Fallout 76 without NPCs. Luckily, they'll be here before you know it. I'm mostly excited about the companion and reputation systems because that should add more depth to the experience.
If you've been holding out on Fallout 76, you'll be happy to know that it's coming to Steam on April 14. That should make the game much more accessible for a number of people who prefer the platform.
