About

Prepare to welcome the Brotherhood of Steel to Appalachia in “Steel Dawn,” the next free update for all Fallout 76 players releasing December 1. “Steel Dawn” is the first chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel questline and expands on the new life brought to Appalachia from April’s Wastelanders update, adding new NPC’s, new locations to visit, C.A.M.P. Shelters for expanded building options, new weapons and armor to earn, and much more.

“Steel Dawn” is the first chapter in the new Brotherhood of Steel questline, free for Fallout 76 players. Paladin Leila Rahmani and her troops have arrived from California to establish a new Appalachian chapter. Work with or against the other Factions to achieve success. Visit settlements populated with new NPCs and unlock powerful weapons and armor from the Brotherhood arsenal.
