Bethesda Announces Two Fallout 76 Updates for December

Bethesda Announces Two Fallout 76 Updates for December

"We know you're frustrated and angry."

Things aren't so hot for Fallout 76 right now. Bugs and glitches, not to mention full crashes, have plagued Bethesda's online game since launch last week. Thankfully, the developer has now outlined two major updates for its game.

In a post over on the Fallout 76 subreddit, Bethesda announced the first of two updates for Fallout 76, which is slated to launch on December 4. While the stash limit will be increased from 400 to 600, Bethesda has also promised a "variety of performance and stability improvements, balance changes, and multiple bug fixes" with the update.

Then there's the second planned update for Fallout 76, set to launch a week later on December 11. Firstly, the second patch will also feature a variety of bug fixes, but will also let players respec their SPECIAL points once they hit level 50. There's also a "Bulldozer" feature for your CAMP, which lets you move small obstacles like rocks and trees out of the way, as well as a new feature for CAMP placement when you login, whereby the game will notify you if someone has already occupied your previously established CAMP space.

At the very top of the post however, before outlining the planned changes, Bethesda issued a broad apology for the state of Fallout 76 and how it has communicated with players. "We know you’re frustrated and angry at the state of things right now, whether it’s the issues you’re running into in the game, or the lack of communication about fixes, updates, or news," the developer wrote. "We didn’t want you to think the silence meant nothing was happening. We're sorry and understand this was not the right approach, and we’ll work to make a better bridge between you and the dev team at BGS."

There's a lot of problems with Fallout 76, not least that it's dead boring, as we wrote in our very own Fallout 76 review earlier in the month. Bethesda has a long way to go to turn this game around, and making it actually function properly is a good place to start.
