Fallout 76 players can finally travel beyond Appalachia in today’s The Pitt update

Fallout 76’s The Pitt update, which allows players to leave the borders of Appalachia for the first time, was released today on Xbox and PC.

Announced in June 2021, The Pitt – inspired by the Fallout 3 expansion of the same name – takes players to a town built on the remnants of post-nuclear Pittsburgh, who can explore by embarking on Expeditions, a brand- new feature introduced in today’s update.

Expeditions are essentially repeatable missions for up to four players that introduce new NPCs and enemies to fight, with participants able to earn various in-game rewards for their efforts. Bethesda says anyone can take part in these new activities but recommends that players be level 50+ “for the best experience.”
