Fallout 76‘s first season, The Legendary Run, starts on June 30, alongside Update 20, Bethesda announced. Seasons in Fallout 76 had been previously announced as a free battle pass type system where players can earn cosmetics and premium currency through completing challenges.
Season 1 features 100 ranks for players to progress through, with each rank offering a new reward to earn. Players rank up by completing challenges, public events, and gaining XP, all of which increase their S.C.O.R.E. The Legendary Run features a board game theme and will run for 10 weeks, ending in mid-September.
Season 1 is free for all players and Fallout 76 initially encourages you to rank up by playing the game. However, starting on July 14, season ranks can be purchased for 150 Atoms a piece, about $1.50 USD. Seasons will offer Atoms as one of the rewards for ranking up, replacing the option to earn the in-game currency by completing daily and weekly challenges. According to Bethesda, this change will lower the amount of Atoms that you can earn without paying real-world money.
