Fallout 76's stretch of West Virginia's about to get a whole lot of new residents with the Wastelanders update on April 14—not just new players interested in seeing what it offers, but all the new NPCs set to make 76 more like a traditional Bethesda RPG. Rather than confine peoples' NPC neighbors to off-limits sites, some dedicated players will need to move their settlements to make room for the new story content.
Bethesda provided a warning for current residents of Fallout 76's Appalachia in its latest blog post on the Wastelanders update. Players who've currently set up their VaultTec C.A.M.P. sites in an area that's about to become a new off-limits zone are advised that they might want to move prior to the update's release. Still, those who have their sites overwritten when they log in for the first time after the update will be offered a free move.
The map below, dotted with "no-C.A.M.P" markers, gives a rough idea of all the sites where players can't set up settlements, old and new. It's hard to tell exactly how many zones have been newly declared off limits and whether any popular build sites, like the Whitespring Golf Club, are encompassed by the markers near them. On the Fallout 76 subreddit, one user did their best to take pictures at each off-limits site to try and provide a better idea of whether or not a player will have to move.
While some players are lamenting having to give up their cherished spots, others are looking forward to increased activity in their part of the map. "I'm on the edge of one, I hope it's just outside the no build zone," writes one Reddit user. "Would be great for me as my camp is a saloon with drinks for sale. I may be able to make some money finally!"
Players all over the West Virginia map should expect to see some increased player activity with the launch of Wastelanders, especially on PC with the simultaneous Steam launch of Fallout 76. Time will tell how Fallout 76's pre-Wastelanders diehards react to the update's changes, but if it leads to a livelier and more social experience overall, then having to move your home one time seems like a small price to pay.
