Bethesda revealed several new Fallout 76 features, scheduled to arrive in the new few months. The game's battle royale mode Nuclear Winter is getting a brand new map set around Urbantown, while Vault 94 raid is coming on 20 August 2019.

After a poor launch which brought dark clouds over Fallout 76 future, the developer Bethesda have been working hard to fix various issues and add much-needed content to the game.

Several months after the release date, Fallout 76 now has various game modes and activities and soon, it's getting even more content. At QuakeCon 2019 keynote, Bethesda revealed what exactly can players expect from their online RPG in the upcoming months.

The first piece of planned content updates comes on 20 August 2019 and it will introduce a raid experience named Vault 94. The raid will feature three missions that will rotate every week. By completing these missions players will earn rewards such as new armour and social rewards.

Vault 94 raid supports 4-player groups and Bethesda confirmed they are working on another raid experience, however, they did not share any specific details on this one.

The second update, which is scheduled to launch sometime in September 2019 will bring a brand new map to Fallout 76's battle royale mode named Nuclear Winter. The new map will be set in a more urban environment with a lot of vertically to offer a different experience than the current map, which is more rural with a lot of trees and barren fields.

Furthermore, Private Servers are coming "sooner than you think" but that's everything that the devs had to say on the matter so don't get your hopes up just yet.

And last but not least, Bethesda also touched upon Wastelanders update, which will add human NPCs and several classic Fallout weapons. According to the devs, this update is still on track for Autumn 2019.
