Bethesda has announced that Fallout 76’s Wastelanders expansion has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced the team to work remotely in an attempt to limit in-person interactions.

“…this has affected our ability to do the final testing we need for Wastelanders and we must move the release date a week, from April 7 to April 14,” explained Bethesda. “We’ve done everything we can to minimize the delay and can’t wait for everyone to play. A special thanks to all our Private Test Server players for all your help.”

Wastelanders is a major expansion that adds a brand-new main questline, new locations, new enemies, new weapons, a new reputation system, and fully voiced NPCs. The best part is how it’s completely free to all Fallout 76 owners.

April 14 is also the day that Fallout 76 will debut on Steam. Users will be able to pick up the Fallout 76: Wastelanders version or Fallout 76: Wastelanders Deluxe Edition on that platform, as well as Atoms, a Fallout 1st membership, the Tricentennial Pack, and the Raider and Settler Content Bundle.
