Fallout 76 Spring update will add S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Loadouts and more

By Heidi Nicholas,
Thanks to Bethesda's new Fallout 76 2021 roadmap, we have a good idea of everything arriving for the game this year, starting with the first update in Spring.

2021 roadmap

Spring's update will add S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Loadouts, C.A.M.P. Slots, Mannequins, and a new Daily Ops expansion, as well as the return of Armour Ace and Commissioner Chaos in Season 4. You'll be able to access two S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Loadouts from level 25, and Bethesda says these will let you "reboot all of your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. points" for free. You will also be able to create "custom S.P.E.C.I.A.L. point allocations and Perk Card assignments" in C.A.M.P. with the Punch Card Machine, or at train stations across the map. C.A.M.P. Slots, meanwhile, will let you switch between the different C.A.M.P.s you've built, while the Daily Ops expansion will include the new "Decryption" game mode, new locations, new enemies, including the Mothman Cultists, and new mutations.

Next up will be Summer's update, which introduces Steel Reign as the culmination of the tale of The Brotherhood. Steel Reign will bring new quests, locations, rewards, and NPCs. Fall's update will bring us an "evolution" of Private Worlds and another expansion to Daily Ops. Lastly on 2021's roadmap, Winter's update will bring a lot of content with it, including new Legendary Weapons and Armour, C.A.M.P. pets, the start of Public Challenge: Invaders from Beyond, and a new Seasonal — The Ritual. That's all we know for now, but the Fallout 76 team will be holding a developer AMA over on the Fallout 76 subreddit tomorrow, March 23rd, at 11:30am ET / 3:30pm GMT, so it's possible we'll hear new details then. We'll update you when we learn more.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
