Bethesda Game Studios have announced the launch date for the Wastelanders update for Fallout 76, and the game coming to Steam.
Speaking in more detail on the official Bethesda website, the update will be entirely free to all users. Wastelanders will bring NPCs into the game, along with “a brand-new main questline, new locations, new enemies, new weapons, a new reputation system and much more.”
While the update is free, Bethesda will also be selling two faction-themed content bundles. One is themed around Raiders, and another themed around Settlers.
You can find the full run-down on them (via Bethesda) below:

Raider and Settler Content Bundle
- Includes both sets of the items listed above
The official website notes the combination bundle “will give players access to exclusive cosmetic and C.A.M.P. items,” though they are not listed. In addition, those who purchase the Fallout 76: Wastelanders Deluxe Edition will get the Raider and Settler Content Bundle.
Bethesda also note that “Starting with the launch of Wastelanders, we will begin phasing out the Tricentennial Edition of Fallout 76, though players will still be able to purchase the individual items in the Tricentennial Pack on an ongoing basis.”
In addition, the official website notes Fallout 76 will be coming to Steam. Players will have access to standard and deluxe editions of the game, along with “Atoms, a Fallout 1st membership, the Tricentennial Pack, and the Raider and Settler Content Bundle.” It is noted that players cannot transfer Atoms of a Fallout 1st membership balance between their Bethesda.net account, and Steam account.
While Atoms are also specific to Bethesda or Steam versions of the game, items purchased through the Atomic Shop will be shared between them.
