Update 20 is live for Fallout 76

Wastelanders looking to deg back in to Fallout 76 should be happy this week, as Update 20 is here with the game’s inaugural season.

The Legendary Run

Season 1 is here for Bethesda’s constantly evolving Fallout 76. No, there wasn’t already a ‘season 1’. Depending on what you might think of the game though, you might be very happy to see this new addition.

Season 1 has brought quite a bit of new content with it. It wasn’t too long ago that the game finally mad the big time move of adding in NPC’s. After that, 76 finally started looking more like a Fallout game. Now though, it’s got a brand new progression system as well, and more.

If you weren’t into 76 originally, this just might push you over the edge. Scroll down for the official rundown on what’s new this week.

Season 1 Begins – The Legendary Run

The Legendary Run is Fallout 76’s first Season and marks the start of a new account-wide progression system that overhauls the current Challenges and offer players tons of rewards along the way. Players will see a new option on the Main Menu for The Legendary Run where they can view their progress and preview all available rewards.

  • The Legendary Run progression screen features a Captain Cosmos-inspired boardgame where progression is represented as a spaceship game piece on the board.
  • Players will begin The Legendary Run at Rank 1 and can advance their position on the board by earning S.C.O.R.E. through many typical activities they’re already participating in as well as completing Daily and Weekly Challenges, Public Events, and by leveling up.
  • Every time players reach a new Rank, they’re eligible to claim a new reward, like unique armors, C.A.M.P. items, weapon skins, Power Armor paints, consumables, Perk Card Packs, Atoms, and even in-game currencies like Scrip, Caps, or Gold Bullion.

Public Teams

Public Teams is a new system designed make grouping up with others easier and more beneficial than ever, offering special bonuses to players who choose to play together toward a shared team goal.

Join a Public Team

  • A new “Public Teams” tab is available in the Social Menu. From there players can browse all existing Public Teams in their current world, join one, or create a team of their own.
  • Every Public Team has its own Team Goal set by the Team Leader, like Exploration or Events, which can help players find like-minded players to join.
  • Public Teams can have up to four members at once. If there is an open spot, players can click one of the teams in the list to immediately join.

Create a Public Team

  • To start your own Public Team, select “Create New Team” from the Public Teams tab.
  • Next, select from one of six available team goals including Hunting, Roleplay, Events, Exploration, Building, or Casual.
  • After a goal is set all players in the current world will receive a notification that a new Public Team is available (except players you’ve blocked).
