One of the biggest criticisms of Fallout 76 on release was its lack of NPCs. Apart from Wooby, the NPC hidden in Fallout 76’s dev room, there hadn’t been any human NPCs in the game – but that’s set to change, as Bethesda has announced NPCs are set to join the game in an upcoming update called Wastelanders.
Oh, and Fallout 76 is getting a battle royale mode.
Announced during Bethesda’s E3 conference, the Wastelanders update is coming later this year and will be free for all players. In order to explain the sudden appearance of NPCs, the update is set a significant amount of time after the Vault 76 opening. To go with the NPCs are dialogue trees, which should hopefully make Fallout 76 feel a little more like a traditional Bethesda title.
