Fallout 76 Expeditions The Pitt - Release Date And What To Expect

Fallout 76 is gearing up for its latest expansion update following its initial reveal at E3 June last year. In a recent announcement by Bethesda during QuakeCon 2022, Expeditions: The Pitt will launch in September, sending players back to the labyrinth streets of a post-war Pittsburgh to explore a new faction conflict between the Union and Fanatics.

At the same time, Fallout 76 players can look forward to a new storyline, weapons, loot, and four-player repeatable challenges in Expeditions. Here's everything you need to know about Fallout 76's latest expansion update, including its release date and what to expect.

Fallout 76 Expeditions: The Pitt - Release date

Fallout 76's Expeditions: The Pitt expansion update will release on 13th September 2022 for free to all owners of the Fallout 76 base game, currently available on PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox Game Pass, and Microsoft Windows PC.

Fallout 76 Expeditions: The Pitt - What to expect

As mentioned earlier, The Pitt will have Fallout 76 players leave the borders of Appalachia and revisit the industrial wasteland of a post-war Pittsburgh. As one might expect, radiation has plagued the city with various mutations, including vicious Trogs and a new power struggle between the Union and a power-hungry group of Raiders called the Fanatics.

The blue-collar freedom-fighting Union faction is with which players must ally, learn about their history, unlock new weapons and armor, and establish a reputation with the Raider-besieged Fanatics faction. Players must help the unions reclaim their homes. But don't worry, you won't need to do it alone.

Fallout 76's The Pitt expansion introduces a brand-new multiplayer mode, appropriately titled Expeditions. These story-driven, repeatable missions are set in The Pitt, available for players to try out Solo or in a squad of up to four players; these will be scaled according to the player or team's player level.

But don't be fooled; the ruins of Pittsburgh will challenge even veteran players, testing their might and survival ability in The Pitt. In addition, all missions in Expeditions are comparable to Fallout 76's end-of-questline tasks, so be warned.

As a reward for completing Expeditions challenges, players will earn XP, loot, and a new currency called Stamps, which they can exchange for powerful and rare Expeditions-themed loot.

Fallout 76 Expeditions: The Pitt will release on 13th September 2022 for the Fallout 76 base game, available now on PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox Game Pass, and Microsoft Windows PC.
