Bethesda has big plans for Fallout 76: Steel Reign, including the final chapter in the Brotherhood of Steel story.
From what has been shared so far, gamers can expect new quests and a new Legendary Crafting system, which will allow fans to turn normal weapons, Armor and Power Armor, into Legendary items.
A big part of this will be Legendary Cores, which you will use alongside Legendary Modules to make changes to your items.
Legendary Cores can be earned by completing Seasonal Events, Public Events, and Daily Ops.
Bethesda has also confirmed that Wasteland survivors will upgrade Power Armor pieces by visiting Power Armor Stations.
While Legendary Crafting is a big part of Steel Reign, there will be story aspects and quests to discover, with Bethesda telling fans:
“In Steel Dawn, we met the members of the Appalachian chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel. Through our journey, we discovered that some members had disagreements with how the Appalachian chapter should be run.
“In a thrilling conclusion, all disagreements had to be set aside in order to team up against one common enemy.
“However, the issue of how to run the Appalachian chapter still remains and cannot be ignored. Your choices from Steel Dawn will impact this final chapter.
“In Steel Reign, you’ll explore new areas in locations such as the Uncanny Caverns, West Tek, AMS HQ and more. Earn new rewards such as the Face Breaker Power Fist, Mercenary Outfit, Brotherhood Civvies, Cryogenic Bed, and Hellcat Power Armor. You’ll also see some new and familiar faces during your journey.”
Here are some of the other details about what is coming during July in Fallout 76:
- Legendary Cores- Craft all-new Legendary gear from Power Armor to Weapons using Legendary Cores
- Power Armor Displays- Show off your favourite Power Armor skins to everyone that visits your C.A.M.P.
- Power Armor Skins- Give into the MIND Collective and sport a unified look with new Power Armor Paints.
- Weapons Skins- Melt your enemies with the Valorous Alistair Gatling Plasma skin or slice them down with Alistair’s Sword.
- C.A.M.P. Objects- No more cleaning your clothes in the river, claim the Washer and Dryer set for your humble abode.
- Red Rocket Collectron- Complete your garage with the Red Rocket Collectron, who will tirelessly search the Wasteland for auto parts.
