Fallout 76 fans have some exciting updates to look forward to, as the newly released season 8 delivers an otherworldly threat. An alien invasion event called Invaders from Beyond has now arrived in Appalachia, which survivors will need to battle. Bethesda Game Studios provided a much more detailed overview of season 8, and there’s a lot more to sink your teeth into next.
Of course, the biggest attraction of season 8 is the Invaders from Beyond event, which will take place over the next couple of weeks, ending on 15 March. Players will simply need to defeat aliens and complete objectives in order to earn XP, loot and some alien-themed weaponry.
Fallout 76 Season 8 Invaders From Beyond Overview
- Every hour on the hour until March 15, an Alien Mothership will materialize above one of six Appalachian landmarks to deploy three Brainwave Siphons in the area.
- Travel to the Mothership’s location and examine Siphon Kappa to start the event.
- When the event begins, work to destroy all three Brainwave Siphons, one after the other, before the aliens can complete their Brainwave Extraction process.
- There’s just one problem: Each Siphon is protected by a force field, which is controlled by a different Alien Commander.
- Defeat alien forces to draw out the Commander for each Siphon. Take out the Commander and the force field will drop, allowing you and your event mates to destroy the Siphon.
- If you manage to demolish all three Brainwave Siphons in time, you will receive some loot, XP, and have a chance to earn plans to craft new alien weaponry, like the Alien Disintegrator and Electro Enforcer, as well as high-tech new C.A.M.P. objects.
- Keep your guard up, because as long as the Seasonal Event is live, you may encounter extraterrestrial interlopers at select Public Events, including Campfire Tales, Free Range, and Line in the Sand. You may also spot our curious visitors in new Random Encounters that we’re adding with this update.
Fallout 76 season 8 also brings some welcomed improvements such as the ability to hide backpacks, reduced weight for Stimpaks, and a buildable pirate radio for your C.A.M.P.
