Bethesda’s Fallout 76 had a fairly difficult launch in 2018. The title was absolutely full of problems and many players felt cheated by a variety of problems, including pre-order rewards that weren’t filled out properly and a game to hardly playable.
It’s safe to say that Fallout 76 has arguably the worst launch of any Fallout title. Although Fallout 4 was not perfectly received, it was still fairly well received in general, and although there are lots of bugs, it was … bearable, at least. 76, not so much.
Since that difficult launch, Bethesda has spent many hours repairing it. Nowadays, it is technically playable, but the player base has practically disappeared. Much of the gaming community sees it as a dead game, and while those who still remain seem to be staunch fans of the game, it is generally avoided.

But Bethesda is looking to change that with their latest update, the free Wastelanders expansion. This title brings a large amount of new content, including Wastelanders (duh), who are NPCs passing through or staying in West Virginia, where the game takes place.
These Wastelanders will forge alliances that you should keep in mind, although allying with one seems to be optional. Keep in mind that if you go with one, their rivals will probably not take it too kindly. Two of the main factions are engaged in a turf war, with farmers on one side and looters on the other.
Additionally, players will explore a new story quest line to serve the overseer. All of this, of course, will be rewarded with your usual quest rewards during the expansion. Everyone is there to do whatever they can to grab their share of a treasure supposed to be buried in the Appalachians, and you are more than welcome to search for it yourself.
