Bringing their Brotherhood of Steel arc in Fallout 76 to an end, Bethesda Softworks and Zenimax Online Studios has today made the ‘Steel Reign’ update available free-of-charge to all players. The update is available simultaneously on the Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 – and requires no additional purchase.
Picking up on the heels of last year’s Steel Dawn update, players arrive back at Fort Atlas to find the tensions between Paladin Rahmani and Knight Shin have reached a boiling point. After swarms of Super Mutants start to appear and people are reported missing, how will you guide the Brotherhood? Will you take the side of justice or will you remain committed to duty?
Promoted features of the update include:
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.
This announcement also coincides with the embarrassing and presumably unfinished ‘Roman Candle Celebration’ emote (romancandlecelebration) being removed from the in-game Atomic Shop cash store. Sadly, the emote gained not flame for its light, so those that do have it get to enjoy waving around a wooden baton, perhaps wishing they were in a magical fantasy realm rather than post-apocalyptic America.
