Ad Victoriam, Vault Dwellers! The Brotherhood of Steel, led by Paladin Rahmani, are going to return to Appalachia in the Steel Dawn Update, which is coming to Fallout 76 on December 1. Alongside their arrival you will be able to experience the first chapter of an all-new Brotherhood of Steel questline, meet new NPCs, explore new locations, and even earn weapons and armor from the Brotherhood arsenal. Watch our latest Steel Dawn trailer to get acquainted with Paladin Rahmani, Knight Shin, and Scribe Valdez, learn more about their mission, and get a taste of what’s in store for you when the new questline arrives.

As with all of our updates, Steel Dawn will be free for all Fallout 76 players. If you would like, you can also pick up bonus in-game digital items by purchasing the Brotherhood Recruitment Bundle at launch. It will include items you can build to transform your C.A.M.P. into a stronghold that’s fit for a Paladin, like the Brotherhood Scouting Tower, Barricade, and Barracks Locker. You’ll also get the Brotherhood Reclaimed Power Armor Paint, Tactical Field Pack, and a Salute Emote so you can show off your dedication when you’re on the move.

The Brotherhood Recruitment Bundle will be available for purchase separately using real money, or as part of the Steel Dawn Deluxe Edition of Fallout 76, which also contains the full game. Keep an eye on Fallout.com for additional details about the Steel Dawn Update, the new Deluxe Edition of the game, and the Brotherhood Recruitment Bundle in the coming days.


The final months of 2020 are upon us! It has been a transformative year for Fallout 76, from the addition of NPCs and a new main quest in Wastelanders, to the One Wasteland Update, new features, Public Events, and everything in between—but it’s not over yet. We’ve still got plenty of fun planned through the end of December, including new quests and features that are coming with the Steel Dawn Update, several in-game weekend events, and even an all-new Season that’s brimming with rank-up rewards for you to claim. We’ve updated our Community Calendar so that you can stay on top of all these important dates, and more. Check out the full calendar below.


Two years ago, we all emerged starry-eyed from Vault 76, with visions of a bright future for Appalachia lingering in our minds.
