Bethesda Softworks and Bethesda Game Studios have announced the release date for the Steel Dawn expansion coming to Fallout 76.

The new Brotherhood of Steel-themed expansion is launching on December 1st across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Players will be able to experience an all-new storyline with Paladin Leila Rahmani as her troops begin settling in Appalachia, following their journey from California.

Here’s a rundown on the new update, via Bethesda:

Ad Victoriam, Vault Dwellers! The Brotherhood of Steel, led by Paladin Rahmani, are going to return to Appalachia in the Steel Dawn Update, which is coming to Fallout 76 on December 1. Alongside their arrival you will be able to experience the first chapter of an all-new Brotherhood of Steel questline, meet new NPCs, explore new locations, and even earn weapons and armor from the Brotherhood arsenal. Watch our latest Steel Dawn trailer to get acquainted with Paladin Rahmani, Knight Shin, and Scribe Valdez, learn more about their mission, and get a taste of what’s in store for you when the new questline arrives.

As with all of our updates, Steel Dawn will be free for all Fallout 76 players. If you would like, you can also pick up bonus in-game digital items by purchasing the Brotherhood Recruitment Bundle at launch. It will include items you can build to transform your C.A.M.P. into a stronghold that’s fit for a Paladin, like the Brotherhood Scouting Tower, Barricade, and Barracks Locker. You’ll also get the Brotherhood Reclaimed Power Armor Paint, Tactical Field Pack, and a Salute Emote so you can show off your dedication when you’re on the move.

The Brotherhood Recruitment Bundle will be available for purchase separately using real money, or as part of the Steel Dawn Deluxe Edition of Fallout 76, which also contains the full game.
