Fallout 76’s Wastelanders expansion slightly delayed

Bethesda has announced that it is pushing back the release date of Fallout 76’s long-awaited Wastelanders expansion by one week.

The expansion was originally scheduled to launch on April 7th, but will now hit PC and consoles on April 14th. According to a statement released by Bethesda, the decision to delay has been taken due to final testing being affected by the team having to work remotely.

“Like others around the world, we’re dealing with the critical situation that’s currently affecting so many of us. For the safety of everyone, we have transitioned to remote work, and are limiting our in-person interactions,” the statement reads.

“This has obviously changed the way we work, but rest assured that critical services for all our live games are fully operating.”

Wastelanders will finally introduce fully-voiced human NPCs to the game, as well as a reputation system, new areas to explore, new enemies, and more. The expansion will be free for all owners of the game.

“We know this is a stressful time, and we can’t thank you enough for all the support you’ve given each other and us,” Bethesda added. “We’re humbled to have such an incredible community that has stuck with us through ups and downs. It means the world to us, especially in times like this.”

Fallout 76 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
