Fallout 76 is having a new expansion, and this time, the focus will be on Brotherhood of Steel. Fallout 76: Steel Dawn was revealed with a new teaser trailer today, and while it doesn’t reveal much, it gives us some glimpses of the Brotherhood of Steel in action. Steel Dawn is also scheduled to be released before the end of the year, so it should be here soon.
We don’t have a specific release date for Steel Dawn yet, but in a brief post on the Fallout website, Bethesda says it will be released in December 2020. This blog post, like the teaser, doesn’t reveal a lot of information at this starting point, but says this will be “the first chapter in the new Brotherhood of Steel questline.”
“Paladin Leila Rahmani and her troops arrived from California to establish a new chapter in the Appalachians,” says the synopsis. “Work with or against other factions to achieve success. Visit villages populated with new NPCs and unlock powerful weapons and armor from the Brotherhood’s arsenal. Join their mission to rebuild society and help ensure valuable technology – but only you can determine how it will be used. “
This, unfortunately, is all the official information we are receiving for now, but at least in the teaser we can see the Brotherhood in confrontation with some Super Mutants, which is always a fun sight. It looks like Steel Dawn will hit all checkboxes for a Fallout 76 expansion, with new settlements, weapons, items and NPCs planned.
We’ll have to wait for more from Bethesda before we learn what the new weapons and items do, but since the company is planning Steel Dawn for December, it probably won’t be long before we learn more. Stay tuned, because we will let you know when Bethesda shares this additional information.
