The Fallout 76: Night of the Moth Update has arrived with the Mothman Equinox seasonal event, Fallout 76 Season 7: Zorbo's Revenge, and a number of quality of life improvements.

Fallout 76 had previously laid out an ambitious roadmap for 2021, part of which included the launch of the Fallout Worlds Update. We also got some nice surprises when the rumored Communist cosmetics finally dropped in the game back in September. Now that the year is coming to a close, there's one more big update to go -- it's time to pay the Mothman a visit.

What's New in the Fallout 76: Night of the Moth Update?

As you might expect from the name, the Fallout 76: Night of the Moth Update features the Mothman Equinox Seasonal Event as its centerpiece. A cult called The Enlightened has popped up in Point Pleasant to celebrate the Mothman Equinox with its plans to summon this odd cryptid. Unfortunately, it won't be easy -- you'll have to fight off rival cultists throughout the event. Successfully completing it will grant you access to new themed plans.

This Fallout 76 update also marks the start of Fallout 76 Season 7: Zorbo's Revenge. Dr. Zorbo wishes to assemble a crew and build a gigantic war machine to get revenge on Captain Cosmos. You'll once again be able to grow past Rank 100 in order to earn new rank-up rewards. Additionally, there is a new scoreboard for the event and two new allies; you can read more about the new content on the Fallout 76 Seasons page.

The final major point for the Fallout 76: Night of the Mothman Update is several quality-of-life improvements. A new "nearby corpse" button makes looting enemy inventories easier than ever. A new "Team XP Sharing" feature makes partying up even more beneficial and you won't have to worry about Legendary Loot getting sniped thanks to a new "Legendary Loot Sharing" feature.

These are just some of the many, many quality of life improvements arriving today; you can read about all of them in the full Fallout 76: Night of the Moth Update patch notes. You can get started with the game by buying Fallout 76 for PC and consoles starting at $39.99 or your regional equivalent.
