Fallout 76 is opening up the PTS to test The Pitt expansion soon

Fallout 76 PTS Pitt

“In the coming days”

The Pitt returns to Fallout 76, as Bethesda has unveiled new details about how the Fallout 76 PTS Pitt build will shake out, and what it’ll entail.

Nearly a year ago Bethesda revealed that The Pitt (Pittsburgh) would return to the Fallout universe, and now it’s time to make good on that. The PTS (public test server) will be the earliest possible way to try out the upcoming update/expansion, which is centered around “repeatable missions that are tuned for higher-level players” in the form of expeditions.

Expeditions will have players heading to Whitespring Refuge to meet the Responders faction, and will task them will “charging up Ultracite Batteries” with three refuge daily quests to actually partake in said expeditions. Naturally The Pitt is a huge part of the update too, and is accessible via the “Union Dues” mission through the expedition system. Expeditions will cycle through three randomized objectives (including “several optional ones”), held together by an “overarching theme.” During this particular session, only Union Dues will be accessible, but a second mission is planned to be added later on. The update itself is slated for “later this year.”

As a bit of background on how The Pitt lines up with the rest of the universe in 76, Bethesda provided this little lore nugget: “The Pitt is currently fraught with a power struggle between the Union, an industrious and diverse band of survivors working to rebuild the city, and the Fanatics, a gang of raiders looking to expand their territory.” Bethesda says the Fallout 76 PTS Pitt build will open up “in the coming days.”

As a reminder, the PTS is now fully moved to Steam at this point in Fallout 76‘s lifecycle, and is no longer tethered to the Bethesda Launcher in any shape or form. For more details on how to migrate all that over to Steam, read this article.
