Fallout 76 Wastelanders Update Delayed Meaning NPCs Arrive Next Year

The Wastelander update is quite a significant update to the world of Fallout 76 because it is meant to introduce human NPCs which were not part of its launch. The online multiplayer didn’t come with these NPCs due to its post-apocalyptic nature, instead players could learn about the events that proceeded by listening to a number of Holotapes that were dotted around the Wild Appalachia and interactions came from meeting other players in the game.

But due to feedback Bethesda decided it was time to introduce some human life into Fallout 76 in the form of NPCs. Its arrival however will be delayed until next year, originally it was meant for a fall release. Bethesda are adding private servers next week though.

In a blogpost by Bethesda, they explain that it’s “going to need more time to be the best, most polished update it can be”. Players can expect the update in the first quarter of 2020.

Private servers are launching next week which allows players to setup their own worlds and invite who they wish to their own post-apocalyptic setting. Also “in the future” private servers will allow players to add mods, will be interesting to see what the modding community comes up with. The developer has said more news about this will be announced soon.
