The patch will address issues raised by players, on top of improving performance and stability.
Bethesda has posted an update on its official website, briefly outlining the nature of the upcoming patch for Fallout 76. Similar to the patch they put out halfway through December, the upcoming patch will focus on fixing issues that they have been brought to their attention by those playing the game, while also bringing performance and stability improvements, for a total of what the update claims are over 150 fixes.
The update will once again go live on PC first- in just a few hours in fact, on January 10 at 9am ET, with PS4 and Xbox One players receiving the update on January 14. While full patch notes will be released when the update itself goes live, Bethesda says issues with things such as Challenges, quests, weapons, perks, and exploits will be addressed. Meanwhile, the update also confirms that Fallout 76 will be receiving one more patch by the end of the month, which will continue to address issues brought up by the community, with things such as perks and Legendary mods.
Bethesda also has a few more notable features in the pipeline for Fallout 76, such as a new PvP mode and player vending, so there is quite a lot of stuff to look forward to for those who’ve stuck with the game since its troubled launch.
Fallout 76 is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Stay tuned for the full patch notes of the upcoming update.
