Over the past year now, Fallout 76 has faced a wave of content which many did not anticipate with how the game launched initially. For starters, the Brotherhood of Steel made its debut for the earliest entry in the series with a two-part expansion. First in December 2020 came with Steel Dawn and followed by Steel Reign the following summer. But that was only the beginning. 

Additionally, dataminers uncovered new expeditions which returned players to previous settings like Washington D.C. The developer went on to unveil Fallout 3’s The Pitt will be the first in the upcoming project when more is ready to be shared. It was this past February that Bethesda mapped out its plans for 2022 leading into the winter this holiday.

But, speaking with AusGamers, Bethesda is looking ahead for the next five years the team revealed in the interview.

It’s a very different game these days from where it was when it launched. We’re constantly evolving [Fallout 76]. We’re looking at what our players are doing, what they’re asking for. We try to react as best we can to player feedback and address the things that they’re trying to do and wanting to do.

Of course we have our own longer-term plans, but this year’s roadmap is also a direct response to player feedback. A consistent piece of feedback that we’ve been getting for a while, that players want to see some new Public Events in the game. We’ve definitely put a lot of effort in making sure that we can add a lot of new ones, including a new region boss at the end of the year.

Mark Tucker, Fallout 76 Design Director

He adds, “The three-year roadmap is a lot more understood and known, at five-years it gets a little more fuzzy, but we’re dedicated to updating [Fallout 76]. The message to our players is, there should be no reason to think that we’re not going to continue updating this game.” Understanding some of the major projects coming to Fallout 76 such as Expeditions, Tucker explains its a door for more opportunity throughout the Fallout IP.

“One of the big goals for this new feature called Expeditions was to allow you to visit different locations in the Fallout universe. And that’s something to keep in mind, because Expeditions is a feature in and of itself.” Even more is the team’s plans to evolve the Appalachian Wasteland over time to bring new locales to the region.

“Things that we’re doing in this year’s roadmap are still very much in line with that. A lot of the content that’s going to take place within Appalachia is based around public events, but there are changes we are making for Expeditions.” Are you interested in the lifespan ahead for Fallout 76
