Fallout 76 – The Legendary Run is on

Patch 20 brings new challenges, rewards and Public Teams

The race is on as The Legendary Run kicks off in Fallout 76! Today we celebrate the launch of Patch 20, as well as the start of our first Season, which will run from June 30 through mid-September. Seasons are a new account-wide progression system that overhauls the existing Daily and Weekly Challenges and gives you tons of opportunities to earn rewards. Seasons will be free for all players to take part in and enjoy, and everyone will advance on the same progression track. Also as part of Patch 20, is a brand-new Public Teams feature. Learn more about Seasons and Public Teams below!

The Legendary Run & beyond

Our Seasons begin with The Legendary Run, an intergalactic Captain Cosmos boardgame-inspired adventure. As Captain Cosmos you will race the evil Dr, Zorbo across the galaxy. Earn S.C.O.R.E. in order to progress across a virtual game board by completing Daily and Weekly Challenges. S.C.O.R.E. will allow you to rank up and claim in-game prizes like Atoms, Perk Card packs, unique cosmetics, and even useful items like the Ammo Converter, which is an early reward that you can build in your C.A.M.P. and use to exchange unwanted ammo types for ammo you need.

There are 100 ranks in total, and each one comes with a reward. To help you rank up, the Daily and Weekly Challenges have been revamped to provide easier everyday content for players. Once you rank up, you can claim your rewards directly from the game board, accessible through the new Legendary Run option in the Main Menu.

Public Teams

Want to get rewarded for partying up? The new Public Teams feature being introduced in Patch 20 does just that. 

Through this new system you’ll receive helpful bonuses just for pairing up to play with friends and other players, and it’s easier than ever to do so. Now all you need to do to start a party is open the Social Menu and find the Public Teams tab. This will show you all available Public Teams in your current world. You can also see the goals they’re working on, so you can find a group of likeminded players to buddy up with. Public Teams can have up to four members, so as long as there’s an open slot, you can just hop right in and join them.

Each Public Team will have a team leader that sets the goal for the team, and based on the type of goal they choose, they will gain a specific buff. The types of goals are: Hunting, Roleplay, Events, Exploration, Building, or Casual. Each one comes with a different buff, and the strength of the buff will depend on the Bonds you’ve formed with your teammates. Bonds form when you play together for a short amount of time, and will increase for each of your bonded teammates. 

Here’s the full breakdown of Team Goals and their  Bond bonuses:

–    Hunting – Bonus: +25% XP for Legendary Kills (100% for a fully bonded team)

–    Roleplay – Bonus: +1 Charisma (+4 for a fully bonded team)

–    Events – Bonus: +25% XP for completing Events (100% for a fully bonded team)

–    Exploration – Bonus: +1 Endurance (+4 for a fully bonded team)

–    Building – Bonus: +1 Intelligence (+4 for a fully bonded team)

–    Casual – Bonus: +1 Luck (+4 for a fully bonded team)

There’s even more to come beyond Season One and Patch 20. We’ll see you in Appalachia!

  • I’m more amazed this game still exists than I am the fact there’s an update

    • Peoople stil play it unfortunately, which means, we could be waiting as long for Fallout 5, as we have been for TES6

    • Yeah, but nowhere even close to the first week sales of Fallout 4 lol. And that’s the sales I’m talking about. A few thousand left playing it, not much to talk about.

      A horrendous failure for everyone and the games industry as a whole, and human developer lives wasted, is still a failure.

    • The game is literally a completely different game than it was when it came out. How about you get some intelligence before you start commenting on things you are obviously ignorant about.

    • Its still a game nobody wanted. Stop being ignorant to that and defending this failed, waste of human developer lives, trash.

      We could have a had an actual great new Elder Scrolls or Fallout/Fallout spinoff game before this gen was over. Instead we got Fallout 76.

      The game is still full of horrendous bugs and graphical problems. Look up anybody’s account of updates to the game. Stop lying to your yourself and “literally” being ignorant to the truth.

    • Hah, like you’ve ever once played it. It is essentially a Fallout 5 at this point in time, whether you want admit or not, you miscreant. Major bugs, oh yeah sure there are. I sure haven’t come across any, for the record.

    • The game was terrible at launch, buggy as hell and no actual substance.

      After the Wasteland update, it feels like an actual Fallout game again.

      Stop your whining, no one’s forcing you to play it, go back to Fortnite.

  • Damn.. all of this sounds really solid. I’m trying to hold out for a PS5 patch before I hop back in. Then I’ll have more content, better visuals, and less loading. I still haven’t hopped in for NPC’s other than for a day.. so there is a good amount of content waiting for me already.

    • Id assume the PS4 games would behave the same way through the emulator they’d need for BC.
      The loading screens a thing of the past is more for PS5 titles.

    • Loading screens absolutely will still exist, sorry to burst your bubble.

  • Thanks for this post. Seeing this now just reminded me we could have got THIS garbage as a PS Plus game this month. Now NBA 2KCasino and Tomb Raider of The Rising Failure don’t seem so bad lol.
