Fallout 76 Update Plans for the Balance of 2018 Revealed

Fallout 76 Update Plans for the Balance of 2018 Revealed

Now that the official Fallout 76 1.02 update patch notes have been released by Bethesda, we can dive right into what's new in the update. The patch weighs in at a whopping 47GB, which is almost as big as the game itself.

Fallout 76's release has been a rocky one, with critics and fans slamming the game for various bugs and performance issues ever since its release on November 14.

You can read the full patch notes here. Bethesda says that though future patches will obviously vary in size, it isn't expecting many that are as big as this one is. In live service games similar to Fallout 76, you'll sometimes see enormous patches like this pushed out early with subsequent updates being much smaller. We expect it go live few hours after the maintenance ends.

Before all that, there will be a patch delivered that will focus on ensuring better game performance and stability, alongside a load of bug fixes for quests, the interface in general, and more general tweaking.

Seek Revenge: Cap rewards will now display correctly when choosing the "Seek Revenge" respawn option after being killed by another player.

There have also been a number of changes to crafting and workshops. For starters, logging out should no longer break your blueprints into smaller parts, which will make setting up and rebuilding your personal camp much easier.

Another problematic bug would caused items to return to a broken state after being repaired, forcing you to attempt to fix them over again. The Bethesda launcher will auto-download this patch the next time you launch its client and you can find its complete changelog below.

The 47GB patch is the largest patch for the game yet, but what is interesting is that the game itself is not adding on extra data, instead, it is replacing most of the game in a massive fix for the PlayStation 4. It's unfortunately not the update where the stash limit is increased.

Expect 21:9 Ultrawide resolution support, a field of view slider (changing FoV now requires fiddling in config files), and a push-to-talk option for voice, and a larger stash size.

So, Bethesda certainly wants to make a lot of changes in the remaining weeks of 2018. In addition, you will see articles each week that highlight new events, content, and features we're excited to share. Stay tuned, and for now, head down to the comments section to let us know what you think of the patch arriving today!
