Bethesda has released the Fallout 76 update 1.47 November 24 patch and thanks to an error, Christmas is coming early for Fallout 76 players! Earlier today, there was an error that allowed the Xbox community to download the big Steel Dawn expansion ahead of its December 1 launch. While the players can download the data, they couldn’t actually play it.
However, that’s changing now, as the studio decided to just release the free title update today instead of next week! For now, the Fallout 76 servers are undergoing maintenance (started at 4:00 p.m. ET) and will last for six hours! Once maintenance is over, you’ll be able to take on the Steel Dawn questline and more.
Fallout 76 Update 1.47 November 24 Patch Notes:
Steel Dawn is the first chapter in the new Brotherhood of Steel questline, free for Fallout 76 players. Paladin Leila Rahmani and her troops have arrived from California to establish a new Appalachian chapter. Work with or against the other Factions to achieve success. Visit settlements populated with new NPCs and unlock powerful weapons and armor from the Brotherhood arsenal. Join in their mission to rebuild society and aid in securing valuable technology – but only you can determine how it will be used. Coming December 1, 2020.
The Steel Dawn update includes:
• New Questline – Determine how you will aid The Brotherhood of Steel NPCs in the first chapter of their new all-new story.
• New Locations and Gear – Unlock unique weapons and armor from Steel Dawn and explore new locations newly populated with members of The Brotherhood and other factions.
• Season 3 Scoreboard – Join Time Operative K.D. Inkwell in her quest for the Guild of Antiquities and rank up to unlock new rewards including C.A.M.P. Allies, Lunchboxes, and more. Beginning December 15.
• C.A.M.P. Shelters – Build and decorate in new underground, instanced spaces separate from your main C.A.M.P. Complete a new quest and get your first Shelter free starting December 1.
• Lite Allies – Recruit two new allies as you rank up during Season 3, who offer bonuses exclusively from your C.A.M.P.
Once Bethesda releases the official patch notes, we’ll update the post to include the gameplay-specific changes.
