Fallout 76 - August 2020 Updates

The latest development update for Bethesda’s multiplayer survival RPG Fallout 76 directs us towards this year’s QuakeCon events, shows off some free in-game rewards, updates the community calendar, reminds us about the Fortifying ATLAS in-game event, and more. Here are the text bits:

Greetings, Dwellers! We’re making final preparations as we head into QuakeCon this weekend, and we’ve got a number of reminders to share with you about Fallout 76 at QuakeCon this year, our ongoing Fortifying ATLAS community challenges, and some updates for our community calendar. Read on to catch the details, and we hope you’ll join us for three action-packed days this weekend.


In case you missed it, we wanted to share a reminder that we’re kicking off a weekend full of streams during QuakeCon At Home, which starts tomorrow, August 7. Over the next few days, you will be able to join us a wide variety of Fallout streams, including a cooking show, a cosplay interview, a Fallout-themed variety show, and even a run-through of the new “A Colossal Problem” event with folks from the dev team.

Aside from Fallout 76 content, you can also tune into shows featuring many of our other games over the course of the weekend. Make sure to check out the full QuakeCon stream schedule, and then join us at Twitch.tv/Bethesda starting at 12:00 p.m. ET tomorrow, August 7. See you there!


Don’t forget, we’re also adding the new Beelzebilly Outfit and the Mr. Demonic Backpack to the Atomic Shop for free all weekend long, starting a little later today. Join the QuakeCon celebration in-game this weekend by claiming your goodies in the Shop from 12:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, August 6, until August 10.


We have revisited our Community Calendar to make a few adjustments so that all of the information is as up-to-date as possible. As we mentioned earlier this week, we are still actively working on additional performance improvements for “A Colossal Problem,” and we expect to enable the event within two weeks. Additionally, there’s still lots to look forward to this summer, including the return of the “Meat Week” Seasonal Event, Legendary Perks, community events, and more!

Check out the updated community calendar below and be sure to pencil event dates into your schedule so that you don’t miss any of the action.


Our new series of community challenges, called Fortifying ATLAS, kicked off just a few days ago. Since then, Dwellers throughout the Wasteland have been hauling construction supplies to Russell Dorsey at the ATLAS Observatory in the Savage Divide. Russell believes the Brotherhood of Steel are on their way to Appalachia, and he’s commissioned you to aid in preparing a prospective HQ ahead of their arrival. In exchange for your supplies, you’ll receive some provisions each time you turn in. Primarily, though, you will be helping the community reach shared turn-in goals. Reaching these goals will unlock rewards for everyone, including new Brotherhood-themed cosmetics and events.

If players successfully deliver 125,000,000 Steel to ATLAS before August 8, everyone will be able to claim the new Brotherhood of Steel Beret as a reward in the Atomic Shop, starting August 10. The second phase begins this Saturday, requiring 150,000,000 concrete, and offers the Brotherhood of Steel C.A.M.P. Banner as a reward.

Looking to lend a hand during construction? You can catch a full rundown of Fortifying ATLAS details here. You can also head to the events page on Fallout.com to keep track of progress toward each goal and to preview all of the rewards that are up for grabs over the next few weeks.

And if you check out this PC Gamer article, you’ll find some short clips of the new stuff coming to the game in the near future, including a new fearsome boss.
