Fallout 76 Patch Adds Project Paradise Event and Fixes Bugs

By Dave Horobin, 1 month ago
Bethesda has released a new patch for Fallout 76 which adds a new event for Wild Appalachia and a host of bug fixes.

Project Paradise Event

The Project Paradise event takes place in large Biome Labs that are now open for exploration beneath Arktos Pharma. To start the new event, players will need to travel to the Arktos Pharma building in the Forest region of Appalachia. Once there, enter the lobby and use the elevator to descend into the new Biome Labs.

Once you enter the Biome Labs, you will assist Arktos Pharma as the experiment on Appalachian creatures that inhabit the labs. Doing so will reward you with new loot and XP, although you'll want to make sure you pay attention to all three Biome Labs for the best rewards. Bethesda suggests that forming a group will be the best course of action, as you'll encounter enemies who are level 50+.
