According to Bethesda, the game servers will be offline for roughly five hours before going online for the launch of the new content. The outage is mostly to deploy the new server-side content and bring everything into a stable state so that players can enjoy it. Fallout 76 Wastelanders will be bringing bunch of new content, but there is one major addition that everyone is talking about.
Human NPCs are being added to the game as the biggest new element being brought into the game. These NPCs will be active in the various zones in the game world that allow players to gain access to new quests and a revamped core storyline. These new NPCs will mostly inhabit a bunch of “no-build zones” that players will be kicked out of if they already built within them. These new zones exist to prevent griefing of quest-givers and the like. Bethesda will be allowing anyone affected by this change can move their camps and other structures to a free zone at no cost to the player.
