If you’ve stuck around Fallout 76 despite its bevvy of bugs, you’ve probably held out for the Wastelanders update. It’s set to rehaul a lot of the major design systems in this latest RPG from Bethesda. Most notably, it’s bringing NPCs to the game. That’s been a major lacking feature that has caused the community to push back against Fallout 76.

It was originally scheduled to release at the end of 2019, but given that it’s a massive undertaking, it won’t be ready until the first quarter of 2020. That doesn’t mean fans will be kept in the dark until the release, though. Some screenshots of the update have actually started to surface and they give us a better idea of what’s in store.

The images show some of the bases that are being added. First up is the settlers faction base. It’s a typical foundation you would expect in a Fallout game. The settlement is called Foundation and it looks like a cozy little place to relax before venturing out in the wastelands again. It almost has a log cabin feel to it, with pieces of lumber and rustic materials scattered throughout. You could certainly do a lot worse when trying to find a resting place in these West Virginia lands.

There have also been shots of the raiders’ settlement. It’s pretty different compared to Foundation. You see, it’s essentially a site featuring a crashed space station. It’s located near Toxic Valley and certainly seems like a great place to hide out for a couple of days. Called Crater, this settlement is teaming with raiders who will not be welcoming you with open arms. Rather, it’s a hostile place where you’ll have to be on guard the entire time.

Both of these settlements seem like great additions that will have plenty of crafting areas and trading vendors. There should also be a lot of NPCs to talk to considering that’s a huge part of the Wastelanders update.

Needless to say, gamers are excited to see what Fallout 76 looks like after this update. It certainly didn’t start off like Bethesda hoped, but at least their committed to making improvements where they’re needed the most. These updates probably should have been available at launch, but it’s as they say: Better late than never.

Expect to see more Wastelanders news the further we get into 2020. Everyone is waiting in anticipation to see how much different Fallout 76 will be.
