Bethesda’s Fallout 76: Wastelanders launches early next week, and the publisher is warning players that many user-created camps will be displaced when that happens. A map posted to the official Fallout blog and Twitter account highlights more than 30 spots throughout the game world, which will be altered by new Wastelanders content when the big story update goes live on Tuesday.
“With the return of people to Appalachia, the new factions have moved in claiming territory as their own,” Bethesda explained in a tweet on Friday. “Wastelanders won’t be the same Appalachia you’re used to. Check your C.A.M.P. location with this map to see if you may need to consider relocating from a no-build zone.”
Replying to a Twitter user who asked what would happen to camps left in a Wastelanders-specific location, Bethesda senior VP Pete Hines said, “Same as when you log in and another player on your server is in your spot. You get a free placement to put your C.A.M.P. somewhere else.”
So most affected players will simply have to get used to a new view. It looks like my camp near the monorail elevator in the Savage Divide will be just fine, but I’m tempted to tear it down and build a new one as part of my Wastelanders playthrough anyway.
Wastelanders goes live for all Fallout 76 players on Tuesday, April 14.
