Fallout 76 is Planning Weekly In-Game Events for Early 2019

Two more updates are scheduled for December.

The first major Fallout 76 update went live today, and Bethesda has taken the opportunity to outline what to expect from the developers in the future following a rocky launch.

The patch today adds a nice fix to the stash storage restrictions, raising the limit to 600 pounds with another increase promised for the future. Along with bug fixes and improvements the update should hopefully alleviate at least one major concern with Fallout 76. But according to Bethesda more updates are on the way, along with weekly content drops.

Two more updates are planned for Fallout 76 this month, one on December 11 and another on December 18. The first will add ability respect after level 50 and offer C.A.M.P. improvements including bulldozing which will help clear the terrain for your camp.

The second update will address stability and community concerns, though no further details were given.

Bethesda is also promising weekly in-game events in "early 2019" that will offer different challenges to players and change up normal gameplay for a little variety. Again however, not much else was explained.

As a live-service game Fallout 76 will likely continue to make changes and tweaks until the day Fallout 76 is firmly on the road to redemption. In the meantime, Bethesda is working on content updates and replacing nylon bags for canvas ones.
