Bethesda has released the roadmap for Fallout 76, through 2021, and it looks like there’s an interesting array of content coming to the post-apocalyptic sandbox. Fans have been looking forward to the upcoming spring update, which includes ways to respec your character quickly with SPECIAL loadouts, and multiple CAMP configurations that players can easily switch between. Today’s roadmap from Bethesda gives us a good idea of what comes beyond that, all the way through to 2022.

The summer will bring more Brotherhood of Steel content. The first Brotherhood of Steel update was a little small, but served to establish the various branches of the Brotherhood. Steel Reign, the next campaign, will conclude that story with another single-player campaign. The summer is also set to bring Legendary modules, which let players craft specific Legendary items instead of wrestling with RNG for the perfect drop.

Fall will bring “an evolution to Private Worlds,” although it’s not clear what that means or how it’s changing. Private Worlds are currently available with Fallout First, the game’s monthly subscription service. There will also be another expansion to the game’s Daily Ops system.

Finally, winter will bring four-star Legendary weapons and armor, along with CAMP pets. Players have been wrangling pets for some time using perks, but it’s famously unreliable, and these pets often met messy ends or simply vanished. There also looks like there’ll be two events, one against “Invaders from Beyond,” and another event where players help cultists in Point Pleasant pull off a strange ritual.

Fallout 76 is currently available on Game Pass for PC, console, and via the cloud, which is an affordable way to try the game. The campaign content, including Wastelanders, Steel Dawn, and the upcoming Steel Reign are all free.
