Fallout 76 Wastelanders update is set to introduce a ton of new content including human NPCs. Today, Bethesda decided to share new details about the human NPC factions that will arrive with the big update.

Bethesda have started to share more details about the highly-anticipated Wastelandes update, which is coming soon to their online RPG Fallout 76. Today, the publisher decided to talk about the Settlers and Raiders, two new factions you will get to meet once the Wastelanders update officially arrives. 


The Settlers are a faction, lead by Paige, the former head of a Construction Workers Union in Washington D.C. The official description states that The Settlers are hard-working people primarily made up of people who are well-versed in how to construct and run a city.

"After hearing that Appalachia might offer some refuge from the trials of the Wasteland, they made their way into the area in hopes of finding a safe place to begin rebuilding. They broke ground at Spruce Knob, began repurposing its existing buildings, cleared the surrounding trees, and a fledgling city has begun taking shape, which they’ve dubbed Foundation," it is written in the description.


The Raiders, on the other hand, are a bit different. They have a rather formidable headquarters at the Crashed Space Station, which they named Crater. They will not offer a warm welcome to those who just drop by unannounced. 

."After they caught wind that people were returning to the land they once claimed for themselves, the Raiders and their leader Meg decided to come back and put a stop to anyone who would dare snatch up their rightful territory," the description says about The Raiders.

Both locations will be completely revamped with new vendors to trade with, crafting areas, and plenty of people to talk to. However, keep in mind that your interactions with those people will depend on your reputation with them and how they view you.
