Fallout 76 has changed a lot since its initial 2018 launch. Not only have NPCs added a more classic 'Fallout' feel to the game, but huge expansions have massively grown the game's Appalachian world. Now, Bethesda is reaching out beyond its own borders.

That's right, the Fallout 76 developer has drafted in the help of Double Eleven, one of the teams behind the hugely popular MMORPG, Rust. Double Eleven will develop "new challenges" for Fallout 76 players, although we're not quite sure what that means at present.

Whatever this content does turn out to be, Double Eleven seems to have jumped at the chance to work on Fallout 76. Here's what the team's CEO, Lee Hutchinson, had to say on the partnership:

It’s a privilege to be trusted to work on one of the most iconic franchises in gaming history.

The team we’ve assembled to work on Fallout 76 are so passionate about the series, working with Bethesda is a dream come true.

It appears that some of this content is already in the bag too, and will see the light of day real soon. Double Eleven has been working with Bethesda since 2020, and "a host of exciting new content" for Fallout 76 is coming from the developer in 2022.

What do you make of this partnership? Are you still playing Fallout 76? Let us know in the comments.
