The Steel Dawn expansion is out now for Fallout 76 on all platforms, and there’s a new trailer here to celebrate.
You can see the Fallout 76: Steel Dawn launch trailer just below. For those unfamiliar, this expansion marks the entry of the famous Brotherhood of Steel faction in Fallout 76, as Elder Mason sent them across the United States to claim Appalachi a for the Brotherhood.
Even the strongest steel has a breaking point.

As you can probably imagine, there are new missions to undertake, items to discover, and characters to interact with in the Steel Dawn expansion. On top of all of this, there’s even a Ruined Vault that you can claim for yourself, building your character a home of his own far from your main camp.
The Brotherhood of Steel has long been a force to be reckoned with in the Fallout universe. My first experience with the faction came in Fallout 3, and it’s the faction’s iconic Power Armor that graced the cover of the classic Bethesda RPG. The Brotherhood of Steel would return again in Fallout 4, waging a war against mutants around Boston.
The Steel Dawn update is available now for Fallout 76 on all platforms and is available for free. Technically speaking, the expansion went live for players early last week, through a bug in Bethesda’s systems that made the expansion available a week before its scheduled release date of December 1. .
Rather than withdraw the update, Bethesda decided to just go live, releasing Steel Dawn a little earlier than planned. As such, there is no maintenance window at this time where the Fallout 76 servers have gone offline prior to the release of the update because, well, it’s already available.
