Fallout 76 - Nuclear Winter

Fallout 76 is getting a new battle royale map named Morgantown for Nuclear Winter mode. The new map will be introduced with the Patch 13, which is arriving on 10 September 2019. By the looks of it, Morgantown will replace the existing map.

Fallout 76's upcoming Patch 13 is set to introduce a bunch of long-awaited tweaks and improvements next week. Recently, Bethesda have shared a couple of blog posts in which they detailed some of these features and in the latest reveal, the developers confirmed that the game's battle royale mode Nuclear Winter is also set to receive new content next week.

More specifically, Nuclear Winter is getting a brand new map named Morgantown. Coming on 10 September 2019 in the Patch 13, the new map features "steep cliffs and a large body of water" according to the official description by Bethesda.

Also, it appears that Morgantown map is set to replace the existing battle royale map Flatwoods, meaning that Morgantown will be the only way to play the Nuclear Winter battle royale mode once the map arrives next week.

The description states that Flatwoods "is being cleaned of radioactive debris." which suggests that the map will indeed be unavailable in the future. However, Bethesda did not officially confirm this, they only mentioned it in a letter from the computer persona known as ZAX. 

As we already mentioned, the Patch 13 is dropping in just a few days so you better duke it out on Flatwoods over the weekend if the map is your favourite. 

All in all, it's really great to see the commitment from Bethesda when it comes to Fallout 76. You may remember that the game launched in a terrible state with all sorts of issues but after a couple of updates and necessary improvements, it's safe to say that Fallout 76 has become the game which players expected on launch.
