According to a supposed insider on 4chan, a new Fallout 76 Wastelanders DLC is currently in the testing phase, with several dozen people invited to the event. Multiple changes designed to make the early game easier on new players are apparently incoming, along with a number of other quality of life changes.
Fallout 76 earned a lot of criticism upon its release for various bugs and issues, a lack of content, and its various microtransactions. However, the new DLC, according to the leak at least, appears to be something of a “fixup” DLC, making various adjustments.
According to the leak, the Fallout 76 Wastelanders DLC will include a large number of changed locations, as opposed to a number of brand-new locations. Characters that originally were only seen as holotapes have also now arrived in the Appalachian Wasteland, too, and NPCs will also be returning.
A few new perks have also been added, while others that already were in the game have been changed. According to the leak the Bloodied perk, which allows you to deal more damage with a weapon the lower your health is, has been nerfed, and the Lady Killer and Confirmed Bachelor perks are also now in the game.
The new DLC has also made various mechanical changes, such as raising your stash space to 1,000 items and also allowing bulk ammunition storage so that ammunition won’t take up separate slots and that you can put a lot more of it in storage at once.
Of course, considering this is 4chan and nothing about a Fallout 76 Wastelanders DLC has been shown announced by Bethesda at all, it might be best for you to take it with a grain of salt even if you do play the game.
Since Bethesda already made one big Fallout 76 announcement at their E3 conference last year, we might be getting another one at E3 this year or at some other gaming event that will announce it for real. However, until then, take anything you hear about it with a grain of salt.
