Fallout 76: Steel Dawn Update Available

The Steel Dawn content update for Fallout 76 was supposed to go live on December 1, 2020. However, due to some mix-up with the game’s Xbox version, that update is now live across all supported platforms. So, if you like both survival RPGs and the Brotherhood of Steel, you might want to check this one out.

You can find the complete update notes over here and read more about the reasons for this unexpected launch below:


Earlier today, there was an error that caused players in our Xbox community to download the Steel Dawn Update ahead of schedule, but prevented them from actually playing. We immediately investigated ways to get our Xbox players back in-game as soon as possible, but, through our discussions, the entire BGS team felt confident that Steel Dawn is ready to go.

As a result, instead of rolling back the update and making everyone wait another week, we’ve decided to release the Steel Dawn Update on all platforms today, November 24.

We’re scheduled to begin maintenance for all platforms at 4:00 p.m. ET, and we expect Fallout 76 to be offline for around six hours. When maintenance is over, you’ll be able to get started with the Steel Dawn questline, your first C.A.M.P. Shelter, and everything else this update contains.

We’d like to apologize to our Xbox players for any confusion today’s issue caused, but we hope that everyone in the Fallout 76 community is as excited as we are to dive into Steel Dawn ahead of schedule.

Thank you very much. If you celebrate Thanksgiving, we hope all of you have a wonderful holiday. We’ll see you at Fort Atlas!
