The Brotherhood of Steel update for Fallout 76 released a week earlier

Fallout 76 Steel Dawn December 1st Update 2020

The release of a significant update "Steel Dawn" for post-apocalyptic MMO game Fallout 76 was scheduled for December 1st, 2020, but it's already possible to check out all the new content. Due to a bug, Xbox pre-downloaded the update, allowing players to access the content of an upcoming update. The problem was detected and corrected, but the developers decided not to undo the changes and open access to the content on all platforms.

With the Steel Dawn update, players will get to know the Brotherhood of Steel and start a new quest chain by going to Fort Atlas (formerly Atlas Observatory) in the Appalachian Savage Divide region. All characters of level 20 can start this quest; however, the main storyline is not completed yet. At the moment, only the first chapter is available, but developers will add the rest of the content in future updates.

The full list of changes can be found on the official website.
