An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but Fallout 76 players will have to wait a little longer for their Wild Appalachia update, which has been delayed until tomorrow.

Bethesda announced the release date change via a post on Reddit, stating the update needs "a little more time to brew". Wild Appalachia will now release a day late, sometime on 13th March.

When the update does roll in, you can expect a brand new boozy crafting system and alcohol-themed questline. This involves training to become a bartender, visiting a hidden speakeasy, and crafting delicious beverages such as hoppy hunter beer, firecracker whiskey and nukashine. It's probably a good idea to stock up on all this booze, as the following Fasnacht Parade event, due 19th March, brings some seriously scary masks you'll probably want to forget.

High whiskey, high reward.

Wild Appalachia forms the first part of the Fallout 76 roadmap - Bethesda's plan to develop the game into an improved online multiplayer experience. After Wild Appalachia, players can expect Nuclear Winter in... er, summer 2019 - and Wastelanders to arrive in the autumn. Hopefully this major update goes down well, as Fallout 76 could certainly do with a booze-t in popularity.
