Bethesda has launched the Fallout 76 Steel Dawn update early, after a glitch allowed Xbox players to download the update ahead of schedule.
In a post on the Fallout blog. Bethesda explained that the Steel Dawn update was originally scheduled to go live on December 1 across all platforms, but the Brotherhood of Steel-themed expansion is available now for all platforms following the mistake.
Essentially, players on Xbox platforms could download Steel Dawn, but it meant that this prevented them from playing the rest of the game. Bethesda was actively investigating the issue before making the decision.
According to the blog post, “the entire BGS team felt confident that Steel Dawn is ready to go,” so instead of fixing the early access Xbox issue, they have now launched the update for everyone, a week ahead of schedule.
The new update brings with it a questline that introduces The Brotherhood of Steel to Appalachia, as well as C.A.M.P Shelters, which are customizable underground bases. You can check the full update notes for more details, and see the file size required for the platform you plan to download Steel Dawn on.
