E3 2021: Fallout 76’s Steel Reign arrives on July 7th

Things are about to explode in Fallout 76, Bethesda’s MMOish open-world title. At long last, the Brotherhood of Steel is about to arrive.

Join the Brotherhood

Set to close out the Brotherhood Steel storyline, Steel Reign brings a schism to Fort Atlas. Paladin Rahmani and Knight Shin are at each others throats in this new expansion, which will have players choosing their path. Will they chose duty? Or justice?

In addition to the new questline, Steel Reign will also introduce a bunch of other new things.

  • New Questline – Choose what direction the Brotherhood of Steel will take and solve the mysteries behind the appearance of the Super Mutants 
  • New Locations and Gear – Unlock unique gear from the Brotherhood’s arsenal and explore new locations as you uncover what’s been happening in Appalachia 
  • Season 5 Scoreboard – K.D. Inkwell is back in Escape from the 42nd Century! Rank up to unlock new rewards including C.A.M.P. items, cosmetics, and more. Beginning July 7.  
  • Legendary Upgrades – Put those Legendary Modules to work and create your own 1, 2, & 3-star legendary items, right from the comfort of your own C.A.M.P. 

The war continues

If you thought that Steel Reign was it for Fallout 76, think again. Also revealed by Microsoft and Bethesda was The Pitt, a brand new in-game event that will bring the action past Appalachia.

The Pitt will send players on “repeatable and randomized off-site missions”. These will be to never-before-seen Fallout locations too, so this will be one to watch for longtime series fans.

While The Pitt is looking great, it’s still a ways off. The free expansion will arrive for Fallout 76 some time in 2022.
