Fallout 76 - Fallout Worlds Preview

The next big update for Fallout 76, currently scheduled for a September release, is going to add a series of custom server rules, and custom servers to go along with them. These so-called Fallout Worlds are currently available on the Public Test Server. You can find the patch notes over here and read more about this new feature below:


One of the things we love best about video games, and strive for in every game we create, is that you can make them your own. Not just in the way you play them, but your ability to change them.

Our modding community has been an enormous part of our games for over 20 years, and it’s always been our long-term goal with Fallout 76 to give you your own servers to customize for yourself and your friends. After much iteration, we’re thrilled to reveal an exciting new system that's just the beginning for creating all-new experiences designed by you – Fallout Worlds.


With Fallout Worlds, your imagination is the limit when under the sky of your own personal Appalachia. Utilizing a wide list of customizable settings, players can construct C.A.M.P.s in previously restricted areas or even remove the need for electricity to establish a builder’s paradise. Love Fallout 76’s survival mechanics? You can double down on braving Appalachia’s untamed wilds by changing the PVP rules and difficulty settings. And those are but two examples of what’s possible in Fallout Worlds.

Combine unlimited combat AP and infinite ammo to become a mighty wasteland warrior, configure creature spawns for serious big game hunting, control weather effects such as fog, nuclear radiation, or even Quantum Storms, turn on absurd jumping heights (just remember to turn off fall damage), enable ragdoll physics, change the height limit on settlements...all this and more are yours to play and experiment with as you see fit.

And yes, this list of customization options will continue to expand!

When you start the game after the update in September, you’ll be introduced to two brand new modes as part of Fallout Worlds: Public Worlds and Custom Worlds.


Public Worlds are a rotating series of Fallout Worlds experiences available to all players. Hand-crafted by the team at Bethesda Game Studios with input from the Fallout 76 community, each Public World uses a different combination of Fallout Worlds’ settings to bring you a unique play experience.

This offers everyone in Fallout 76 the opportunity to see for themselves what’s possible in Fallout Worlds, as well as inspiration for their own creations with Custom Worlds.


Custom Worlds completely evolves the personalization of Fallout 76’s existing private servers, granting active Fallout 1st members full access to Fallout Worlds’ settings and features to build their own personalized Appalachias.

While players can experiment like a mad scientist to their heart’s content solo, Custom Worlds is also a blast to share with others! Invite your friends and teammates to your Custom World and they can join in on the fun even without a Fallout 1st membership.


We’re committed to bringing even more customizable options and ways to play to Fallout Worlds with eyes on the feedback of the Fallout 76 community. Our goal is giving players the ability to transform Fallout 76 into, as the name implies, their very own world.

Get your first taste of Fallout Worlds when the feature hits the Public Test Servers today. For players seeking out more information, we will have more details to share regarding Fallout Worlds made available at a later date. Whether you’re craving your own immersive roleplaying server, impressive personal fortress, wacky platforming level or whatever else your imagination conjures, we can’t wait to see what the Fallout 76 community brings to Fallout Worlds.

Like we said, this is just the beginning.
