Fallout 76’s free Wastelanders expansion has been announced to arrive during this fall, but it will be delayed until the first quarter of 2020. Hopefully, we’ll have to wait only a bit more than two months for the release. The expansion will introduce human NPCs written in the style of the mainline RPGs.
Bethesda, the development company of the game, stated that the expansion requires an extra time of work since it has begun very large and demanding.
“We’re excited about how Wastelanders is coming together but it’s going to need more time to be the best, most polished update it can be, so we are delaying its release to Q1 next year,” Bethesda said in a blog post.
“We’ve continued to re-evaluate and change our processes to make sure the work we’re doing hits our quality bar, and yours. We apologize for this delay but know it will be worth the extra time. Wastelanders is turning out to be one of the largest expansions we’ve ever done, and it changes the entire world with human NPCs returning.”
Fallout 76 had many bugs the players have been dealing with, so let’s just hope that it will be worth the wait for the expansion. The more grim scenario is that fans of Fallout 76 will have to wait until the end of March 2020.
We have all the reasons to expect Bethesda to improve the game along with the Wastelanders update. During this years’ E3, the development company headquartered in Maryland also revealed that a new era for Fallout 76 would be unfolded, and a bigger focus will be regarding the stories and goals of the characters.
The current minimum system requirements for Fallout 76 are not very demanding and unaffordable for a 2019 gamer: 8 GB of RAM, NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB, or AMD Radeon R9 285 2GB, and Intel Core i5 6600k 3.5 GHz. Besides the PC version, the game is also available to play for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
