Skyline Valley arrives for Fallout 76, includes Vault 63, a new Ghoul type, and Shenandoah

A major new drop for Fallout 76, Skyline Valley expands the map, adds in a new kind of Ghoul, and the mysterious Vault 63.


Get ready to boot up Fallout 76 one more time, as Bethesda continues to grow with a major new update. Revealed at the Xbox Games Showcase, Skyline Valley brings a totally new area to the title’s already massive map, with the southerly region of Shenandoah.

This of course isn’t the Shenandoah that you might know, as this post-apocalyptic version of the picturesque spot is beset by electrical storms. The raging lightning has a mystery to it as well, that players will have to uncover, which may or may not include a new electrically-powered Ghoul type (The Lost), and a boss called the Storm Goliaths. Yes, plural.

The Wasteland has broadened its horizons with today’s launch of Fallout 76: Skyline Valley. Now available for free for Fallout 76 players across all platforms, Skyline Valley marks the first ever map expansion and takes the adventure southward to the brand-new Shenandoah region where players will investigate the cause of an electrical storm looming overhead and unveil the mystery around Vault 63 where players will meet its dwellers and discover a shocking new Ghoul type – The Lost. 

Bethesda press release

Landing right along with Skyline Valley is another new update, in Season 17: Pioneer Scouts – Skyline Valley. In this new Seasonal piece of content, Fallout 76 takes players to a summer camp of sorts, where they can “participate in classic camp activities while earning new in-game camp-themed rewards”. Sounds like some good old fashioned fun! For a full list of what you can grab, click here to head to Bethesda’s official site.

Ready for some fun in the great (electrically-charged) outdoors? Skyline Valley is out right now for Fallout 76 for the PC, Xbox, and PlayStation platforms. Don’t have a copy of the base game? Well, if you have Xbox Game Pass or PlayStation Plus Extra, post-apocalyptic adventures are included, so get to downloading.
