In Wastelanders update the story is going to revolve around the new NPCs, Settlers and Raiders, who will be rolling into Appalachia.
Lead Designer Ferret Baudoin at Bethesda Game Studios says – “New NPCs are everywhere. You’ll find them along roads or in settlements, and they’ve even taken over quite a few existing locations and made them their own. Players can find NPCs in the greatest concentration around the Forest and Toxic Valley. The more dangerous areas of the map are a challenge for them, just like they are for players.”
