Bethesda have revealed a fresh batch of details about Fallout 76's raid, which is coming on 20 August 2019. Raid will be one of the most challenging experiences in the game but players can still complete it alone if they are strong enough.

Bethesda are set to introduce the highly-anticipated raid to their online RPG Fallout 76 next week. The Vault 94 raid will arrive in Patch 12 along with several other additions and improvements.

In their latest blog post, Bethesda have detailed everything that players will get in the upcoming update, with a huge focus on the raid and its features.

Vault 94 is abandoned and overrun by nature but packed with precious resources for players to find and loot. Players can test themselves by going in alone but Bethesda recommend that you assemble a full team of level 50+ adventurers to take on the timed and instanced missions you'll encounter.

According to the developer, this particular Vault is the first dungeon to utilise the new Instancing technology, which will prevent other players who are not on the team from interrupting and affecting your raid. 

This new Instancing tech will first arrive to PC on 20 August 2019 and if everything goes buttery smooth over the following days, the raid will also open for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Furthermore, Bethesda say that they also have better control over the state of the dungeon to ensure every experience is just as fresh as the first time you stepped into Vault 94. 

Apart from the raid, Vault 94 will also offer three separate missions that feature different objectives. One mission will be available at any given time and will last for one week. Each mission returns every three weeks, so if you don’t manage to complete one in time, don’t worry. You can always regroup and try again later.

The first mission is named Dead in the Water and it will be available as soon as Vault doors open while Meltdown and Washout will become available on all platforms during the following weeks on August 27 and September 3, respectively.
