The Nukapedia News Digest is a weekly wrap up of Nukapedia's recent internal news, Wikia news, Fallout game news, and some news relating to the people who develop the Fallout games.
How does it work?
The Nukapedia NewsSquad Usually publish the news over most weekends. Once its published, our twitter and Facebook feeds will be updated, so follow us to keep updated on the latest events.
Sometimes this schedule will not be adhered to - in the event of major news, or a lack of news. The Editor In Chief usually makes this call.

- Wiki related news (...From the Administrative Enclave)
