Fallout 76 update

As you might know, Fallout 76 isn’t too popular at the moment and players are voicing their displeasure loud and clear by review bombing the game on all its platforms. Bethesda is very aware of this and wants to assure players that they are listening.

We want you to know that we have seen your feedback, taken note of issues, and value the time you have taken to provide your thoughts and report problems.

Actions speak louder than words, and so Bethesda is rolling out the first Fallout 76 update tomorrow. Naturally, this first patch focuses on server stability and performance for all three platforms, with player-requested features following in the next update. Monday’s update will also fix issues with quests, the UI, camp building system, and more. Bethesda also warns that it will be a big Fallout 76 update, with smaller ones expected to release in future.

Looking at future updates the first to get some love will be a stash limit increase, something fans have been requesting since the game launched. Bethesda explains in the post that the size is currently limited due to “technical reasons.” The problem is that the backend seems to be struggling to keep track of the number of items in the world and that it could cause server instability.

We believe we have some ideas in both the short- and long-term that will address the size without risking stability, but this is one we need to take our time on to make sure it is done right.

The next set of updates are all for exclusively for PC; push to talk, ultrawide support (21.9), and a Field Of View slider.

Looking at 2019, Bethesda plans to release the following features; the opening of new Vaults, further improvements to Fallout 76’s base and camp building mechanics, new ways to team up with fellow players, a faction-based player-vs-player system, and “many more free add-ons” they’ve yet to announce.

How fare your travels in Fallout 76, or have you decided to give this one a skip?
