- 15.3 GB PC (Bethesda.net)
- 23.3 GB (Microsoft Store) for PC
- 16.1 GB (Steam) PC
- 22.8 GB PlayStation

Season 5 has been extended by two weeks.
We’ve identified a problem with Season 5 rank-ups, where players are unable to receive prizes for ranks bought using Atoms in certain instances. This has no effect on rank-ups obtained via S.C.O.R.E., but we’re working hard to solve it as quickly as possible so that everyone may enjoy the prizes they’ve earned.
As a consequence, Season 5 has been extended by two weeks, until September 21. While we strive to address the underlying problem, rank-up purchases using Atoms will be disabled for the first week. You may still rank-up by earning S.C.O.R.E. through Daily and Weekly Challenges. We’ll deploy our remedy and re-enable rank-up purchases during the second week, giving everyone plenty of opportunity to collect any prizes they earned during the two-week timeframe.
We know that many members of the community are looking forward to the start of Season 6, and we are as well. However, before we begin the next Season, we want to make sure that all players have access to their Season 5 prizes. Thank you so much, and please accept our apologies for any difficulty this has caused you.
Fallout Worlds is a new game in the Fallout franchise.
With this update for Fallout 76, we’re launching Fallout Worlds, which introduces two new game modes: Public Worlds and Custom Worlds, allowing players to experience the game in new and unique ways.
- The new Public Worlds option will let you break up your routine by providing unique worlds with a pre-selected collection of Fallout Worlds settings that are themed.
- All players may join Public Worlds to explore a different Appalachia than the one seen in Adventure Mode.
- At any one moment, only one Public World will be accessible to participants. We now intend to rotate Public Worlds once a month so that you may check out a range of new experiences on a regular basis. However, depending on community input and other variables, the frequency of rotations may vary in the future.
- The first five Public Worlds you’ll be able to visit in-game are listed below. We’ll start with “Happy Builder,” as decided by our Public Test Server participants, then work our way through the remainder in the following order:
- Happy Builder: C.A.M.P. limitations have been loosened, construction limits have been relaxed, all Map locations have been found, and PvP has been deactivated.
- High Risk: No Fast Travel, always-on PVP, extra loot on death, free workbench crafting, and legendary item characteristics have been removed.
- Dweller Must Die: Added “Dark Bog” weather effects, as well as increased opponent difficulty, damage, and item durability.
- Max leap height, no fall damage, nuked animals and vegetation, and “Quantum Storm” weather in Quantum World.
- Butcher’s Delight provides infinite ammunition, no VATS or melee attack AP costs, and improved dismemberment.
- Players with current Fallout 1st memberships may now choose Custom Worlds from the Play menu to create a new kind of environment in which they can tweak a number of parameters to build an Appalachia suited to their preferences.
- To create a Custom World, go to the Main Menu, choose Custom World, press “Select World Template,” and then experiment with the parameters you want to test.
- In your Custom World, you may invite up to seven friends for a total of eight players.
- Please note that with today’s update, Private Worlds mode has been renamed “Private Adventure” to distinguish it from Custom Worlds mode.
- You may pick from a wide range of customization options while building your Custom World, so let your imagination run wild with the possibilities! Here are some of the choices available to you:
- Workshop: Expand your construction options, remove the requirement for power, boost your C.A.M.P. budget and build height, loosen building limitations, and more.
- Combat: Modify PvP rules, increase enemy difficulty, grant oneself unlimited ammunition, change item durability, and more.
- General: Either disable Fast Travel or make it available for free. Select from a variety of unique weather effects, such as Radstorms and Nuke Zones, as well as brand-new weather effects, such as Quantum Storm and Dark Bog. Adjust leap height, fall damage, and even death effects to get a distinct perspective of Appalachia.
- Please keep in mind that certain Custom World settings may have an effect on the performance of your game client. You may still use them, and you can always activate or disable them again if necessary.
- You may currently store a Custom World you’ve made in one of three slots, and choose one of them to make it your active Custom World.
- You can modify your Custom Worlds after you’ve done building them, so you may change them up as required even if you’ve filled all three Custom World spaces.
- You will be able to connect into a friend’s Custom World if you are a Fallout 1st member and have previously played in it – even if the World owner is offline.
- To do so, go to the Play menu and choose Custom Worlds, then click “View Worlds,” then select your friend’s World from the “Shared World” section and set it to “Active.” You may then play in that World by going to the Play menu and choosing Custom Worlds.
- Don’t worry if you aren’t presently a Fallout 1st member. While your friends who are Fallout 1st members are online, you may still join them in their Custom Worlds.
- The progress that each of your characters makes in Public or Custom Worlds is unique to that planet and unrelated to Adventure Mode.
- At any moment, you may clone your Adventure Mode character for use in a Public or Custom World, and you can have up to five Fallout World personas at once.
- Characters may be manually unlinked from Public or Custom worlds once they have surpassed their 5-character maximum.
- Your character’s progress in a Public World will be accessible as long as the Public World is playable.
- Additionally, when playing in a Public or Custom World, Challenges cannot be performed, and you will not earn S.C.O.R.E., achievements, or trophies.

- You’ll also get one Perk Coin for each Overseer Ticket you earn.
- These Perk Coins have already been added to your account, and you will have access to them as soon as you check in.
