Fallout 76 Brotherhood of Steel Update Releases Earlier Than Expected

The latest Fallout 76 Steel Dawn update was expected to release on December 1st, but due an error caused the update to go live early. According to the official Fallout website, Bethesda explained the update went live for Xbox players, meaning they couldn’t play the game. Bethesda were quick to discuss with their team about the unexpected error, and decided it was ok to release the Steel Dawn update for all.

Earlier today, there was an error that caused players in our Xbox community to download the Steel Dawn Update ahead of schedule, but prevented them from actually playing. We immediately investigated ways to get our Xbox players back in-game as soon as possible, but, through our discussions, the entire BGS team felt confident that Steel Dawn is ready to go.

The DLC went live yesterday for all platforms, allowing Fallout 76 players to jump into Steel Dawn just over a week earlier than expected. The Steel Dawn update adds the first part of the major quest chain, which is similar to April’s Wastelanders expansion. In this update, players will meet the Brotherhood, gain their trust and begins to make a number of decisions which will ultimately determine what the Brotherhood of Steel ends up becoming, either the protectors or a more darker route of becoming militant isolationists.

Further additions come with this update including new NPCs, factions as well as companions. Along with the new quest will be new locations and new gear. There will also be new features such as the C.A.M.P. Shelters, rewards, including weaponsarmor, and C.A.M.P. Plans. More additions will be coming throughout 2021.

Fallout 76 is currently available to play on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. Steel Dawn is a free update which is currently available for all who own the game. For all your appalachia needs be sure to visit out Fallout 76 wiki.
