Fallout 76 has had a plethora of issues ever since it launched, and for a while, it has seemed as though Bethesda is fumbling through trying to patch it up, knocking a new hole into the sinking boat even as they try to plug half a dozen others.
But if you were worried about the future of the game, and wondering whether Bethesda might not have given up on it already, the newest communication from the publisher for the game yesterday should hopefully give you some encouragement.
The new update mentions the upcoming survival mode, as well as upcoming PvE and PvP content to keep players engaged. This will all be a part of Wild Appalachia, Bethesda’s first planned big content drop for the game for the year.
“We will also be introducing new PvE content for those of you who seek adventure through quests, events, and other features,” Bethesda’s blog post reads. “We’re planning to do this through series of weekly updates we’re calling “Wild Appalachia”, which will be our first big content drop of the year and spans the next few months. In addition to new quests, events, and challenges it will also bring new content to C.A.M.P.s, Crafting, and much more.”
They then go on to describe some of the more immediate improvements that are coming to the game, including an increase in the stash limit, as well as players not getting tagged “Wanted” for just accidentally attacking another player’s camp. Bethesda also promised a roadmap for 2019 for the game coming later this month.
Hopefully, all of this works together to make the game a far better product than the shambles it launched in.
