The Brotherhood of Steel marches into Fallout 76 in December, Bethesda has actually revealed.

The well-known Fallout faction strikes the video game as part of the Steel Dawn upgrade. You can see them in action in the video listed below.

This upgrade includes brand-new NPCs, brand-new places and brand-new equipment to the multiplayer-focused post-apocalyptic role-playing video game, Bethesda stated.

In Fallout 76, The Brotherhood of Steel is led by Paladin Rahmani. The concept is you upgrade the Brotherhood on what’s been going on in Appalachia, and provide them an assisting hand. Bethesda stated you’ll find out more about the Brotherhood’s objectives through brand-new missions, with more coming throughout 2021.

Here’s the main blurb:

“Steel Dawn is the very first chapter in the brand-new Brotherhood of Steel questline, totally free for Fallout 76 gamers. Paladin Leila Rahmani and her soldiers have actually shown up from California to develop a brand-new Appalachian chapter. Work with or versus the other Factions to accomplish success. Visit settlements occupied with brand-new NPCs and unlock effective weapons and armor from the Brotherhood toolbox. Join in their objective to restore society and help in protecting important innovation – however just you can identify how it will be utilized. Coming December 2020.”

The Brotherhood of Steel show up in Fallout 76 simply over 2 years after launch, however gamers were discussing their addition in the video game prior to it even came out.

In October 2018, GamingOverpowered reported on how Fallout 76 fans were scratching their heads over a “extremely not likely” Brotherhood of Steel retcon. A conversation was stimulated by a note that discusses a mission including the Brotherhood of Steel. The techno-religious paramilitary organisation, well-known for its famous power armour and deceptive nature, appeared to have actually been associated with the world of Fallout 76 for a long time, having “cautioned” occupants about an upcoming danger.

The issue was that according to fans, the Brotherhood of Steel should not have actually existed at all. The tradition of the other Fallout video games (consisting of the originals) recommends the very first taped activity from the Brotherhood of Steel remained in California in the year 2134. Before this point, it’s basically “indicated canon” that the organisation was holed up in its Lost Hills bunker, reluctant to completely venture out into the world till the year 2150.

Fallout 76, on the other hand, happens in West Virginia in the year 2102. Not just is this earlier than the Brotherhood was expected to leave its bunker, however it’s a damn cross country from Cali.


Bethesda wound up describing this Brotherhood of Steel retcon simply a week after it was raised by fans, firmly insisting the soldiers who would form the Brotherhood of Steel did certainly reach their Californian Lost Hills bunker in November 2077 – a month after the Great War’s end. Once the organisation was formed by Captain Roger Maxson, the Brotherhood “utilized a working satellite to extend their reach throughout America… all the method to Appalachia”.

From Bethesda’s description, it appears the Brotherhood of Steel had the ability to reach a making it through military branch in West Virginia, and utilized the satellite connection to develop a different chapter in Appalachia. Now, they’re on their method back.
