Fallout 76 Steel Dawn update accidentally released early and Bethesda rolls back accordingly • .net

Fallout 76’s long-awaited SteelDawn update, which introduces the Steel Brotherhood to Appalachia, was originally scheduled for release on December 1, but those who logged in yesterday may have confirmed the date.
