    The 60+ hours worth of new and refreshed content is definitely a step in the right direction after the base game’s troubled launch and enhances the existing shoot and loop formula well. While some technical problems persist, the way the team has handled the expansion has given much needed life into the wasteland that can only be further improved upon with subsequent updates. The bulk of Wastelanders’ new story-centric quests are definitely better played solo, but the new events, daily quests and discoverables that come with the update are equally as fun to experience with friends old and new, and signify a brave new direction for the online title going forward.

    Wastelanders gives to the longtime Fallout lovers an experience way more similar to the series they always knew. Unfortunately, the overall experience it still is plagued by bugs and Creation Engine looks and feels as outdated as ever.

    Wastelanders represents a small revolution for the general enjoyment of Fallout 76, a return to the classic canons of the saga that opens up new and interesting perspectives on the future of the title. A year and a half after the game's release, Bethesda has finally followed up on the audience's demands by implementing a long series of substantial changes that significantly alter the game's narrative balance.

    Fallout 76 has improved with the introduction of Wastelanders. The region of West Virginia now feels more alive with an increased populace, deeper quests and a greater focus on your place in its living, breathing world. But many of its problems remain, and haven’t been improved with such a major expansion. Far few players occupy each session, making multiplayer feel like a lazy afterthought instead of something that defines the experience.

    Playing solo can still be entertaining, but the moments of loneliness hang over the player like a cloud while they’re traveling from point A to point B. In the end, it comes down to personal preference — some will enjoy the solemn journeys found in Appalachia, while others will only play when friends are online, but even without them, the Wastelanders update is a step in the right direction.

    The Wastelanders update at least solidifies Fallout 76 as something that’s worth recommending to series fans who are interested in multiplayer. The new storyline is great, but not as easy to play with friends as it should be.

    Wastelanders transforms Fallout 76 from a technical and conceptual disaster to a merely flawed online experience, which has a far better online community than it deserves.

But when Wastelanders dropped and I read about it, I said sure, used copies cost next to nothing. Worth a shot. I've now sank 100+ hours and sold several friends on it. Sure, it still has some weird bugs here and there, but it's far more functional than games like Red Dead Online. Nothing really game breaking. Just weird stuff will happen every so often. Appalachia is by far my favorite Fallout map. It's beautiful to look at. Appalachia is home to me in RL. So all of the folk lore incorporated in this game is just stuff we're all familiar with here at home. Pepperoni rolls and Wendigos baby! Either way, I've played every Fallout to date and I'd say this is the only one in league with New Vegas. I think Wastelanders is a considerably better effort than FO3 or 4. They really turned this turd into something great. Expand

    Игра достойная внимания, для спокойного времяпрепровождения за консолью, когда есть свободные пару часов. Игра интересна на время прохожденияИгра достойная внимания, для спокойного времяпрепровождения за консолью, когда есть свободные пару часов. Игра интересна на время прохождения основной ветки сюжета, интересно это делать в компании с друзьями. И по большей части игра не вызывает какой-то агрессии от геймплея в отличии от сессионных игр. Минус один балл, только за то, что после прохождения и получения 50уровня, игра скатывается в гринд, но для меня игра на данном этапе уже пройдена Expand

It fixes some of the problems the main game has since its release. It added real NPCs, humor and interesting quests or a better story to the game while giving you better dialog options and some new endgame content. Also it fixes some bugs. I am admitting that it is probably too late to turn the tide. However it improves the main game tremendous and it should be praised. While I resigned this game I will say it is a good time to begin if you are still interested in Fallout 76. For me I will instead play Fallout New Vegas as it is far superior (as Fallout 3 and 4 are too). I will also try the Outer Worlds as it is praised as great Fallout experience. Expand

    I made it all the way to level 50, killed the SBQ, completed all the main quests, built an elaborate camp, paid for 1 month of Fallout 1st,I made it all the way to level 50, killed the SBQ, completed all the main quests, built an elaborate camp, paid for 1 month of Fallout 1st, and even earned the 76 hours played achievement.

    For Fallout fans, i would say this is worth it to go through the Wastelanders main story... if you can stomach the bugs and server disconnects. After getting through the main content, I just couldn't handle it anymore and have hung this game up.

    It was fun while it lasted, even better with friends, but ultimately the server disconnects and bugs/glitches killed this for me.

    I recommend this to Fallout fans, get in, get out, and wait for Bethesda to release the next Fallout that is single player only, or... go back and enjoy some good ol' FO4.
