Fallout 76 Steel Reign: Latest Patch Notes Ahead Of Full Release Today

The next big update for Fallout 76 - part of Season 5 - is due to arrive later today as Bethesda looks to roll out the Steel Reign Update.

This will bring a conclusion to the games longrunning Brotherhood of Steel storyline. Here's a bit more about the story for this significant new addition to the game:

You arrive back at Fort Atlas to find the tensions between Paladin Rahmani and Knight Shin have reached a boiling point. After swarms of Super Mutants start to appear and people are reported missing, how will you guide the Brotherhood? Will you take the side of justice or will you remain committed to duty?

Steel Reign will arrive later today after the usual period of offline server maintenance for all platforms.

It's due to begin at 3pm BST and the game will likely be offline for a good few hours, as is normally the case with the game.

Ahead of time, Bethesda hasn't shared any official patch notes for this new update, but we will be sure to share the official notes as they arrive.

For now, it's worth taking a look at the games most recent PTS update and patch notes, which you'll find just below.
