Fallout 76 is getting a huge free update in the autumn in the form of Wastelanders, which will bring NPCs (non-player characters) into the game for the first time. As the trailer wryly notes, “I don’t think any of us expected people to come back.”

Wastelanders will feature a new main quest, and promises to provide players with lasting choices and consequences.

Bethesda said that “Appalachia’s newest residents have their own lives, aspirations, and stories”, and the sudden appearance of NPCs is expected to have a major effect on the gameplay. The free update will also offer new weapons and gear.

Fallout 76 will be running a free trial from 10 to 17 June to give players a chance to sample the game before the new update arrives in the autumn.
