In the newest Inside the Vault, Bethesda says goodbye to the closing of Wild Appalachia in Fallout 76. The developer also shared some plans for the future of the post-apocalyptic MMO.

Patch 9.5 dropped earlier this week for Fallout 76, which also introduced the Project Paradise event. This release, however, signified the end of the series of Wild Appalachia updates for the game, which breathed new life by providing new questlines, events and locations. The updates also introduced several new features, like vending machines, the Purveyor, Legendary Exchange Machines, and of course, the Brewing system. A ton of bugs were also fixed along the way, which is thanks in part due to the fact that Fallout 76 still has a loyal playerbase, despite the overall negative critical reception tied to the game.

Bethesda promises that the end of Wild Appalachia is only the beginning. A few months ago, the developer released a content roadmap which it planned to implement for the rest of the year. In between major content dumps are regular fixes and patches to continually address the game’s broken state.

The next in slate for the roadmap in 2019 is the Nuclear Winter update, set to launch sometime this summer of 2019. This content release will prove to be a big one, including three main features which Bethesda states will change the way players look at Fallout 76.

  • Nuclear Winter, a new game mode – this will be an entirely new way to play Fallout 76, and is set to completely change the rules of the wasteland.
  • Vaults 96 and 94 opening for new vault raids – designed for the most seasoned players, these vaults will test your strength and cunning.
  • Legendary players, a whole new feature – Bethesda will introduce an all-new prestige system for players above level 50, allowing for character resets to become more powerful with new abilities.

Bethesda also announced their E3 presence this year, with things kicking off on June 9 at 8:30 p.m. EDT. The fifth annual Bethesda E3 Showcase can be watched on various social media platforms, including Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, Mixer, and Facebook Live.
