Bethesda has presented the next two major updates to Fallout 76, while apologizing for its lack of communication with the increasingly unstable community of the game.
The next update is scheduled for December 4, 2018 and will result in a much needed increase in storage limit, as well as improvements in performance and stability, as well as changes in balance, Bethesda said. .
In a message on the Fallout 76 subreddit, Bethesda said the reserve limit increased from 400 to 600 with the update. "Although this is somewhat conservative, we plan to further increase the storage cap once we will have verified that this change will not have a negative impact on the stability of the game," he said. said Bethesda.
This is good news. One of the biggest problems with playing at the present time is the crippling paralysis limit, which limits the amount of loot you have at your disposal.
Boss booty will change too. The update means that players must correctly receive two to three items after eliminating a boss, depending on the difficulty and level of the creature.
Players affected with the Cryolator will now be chilled, frosted or frozen, depending on the number of times they have been hit. The duration of reduction of the movement speed applied by these effects has also been reduced from two hours to 30 seconds.
The update fixes a bug which means that players who die with too many people can only reappear on vault 76 (this has happened several times). Upgrading means that players who are redundant will be able to reappear at the nearest discovered card marker.
And the update fixes the blocked bug in Power Armor. "We are also aware that this can happen in a few more cases and we are actively investigating them," Bethesda said.
Expect complete patch notes for the December 4th update later this week.
To go to the December 11 update, this includes bugfixes as well as computer-specific additions, such as instant messaging, 21: 9 resolution support, and a single parameter setting. of field of vision.
This update also adds a respec option of character. After level 50, you can choose between a new Perk card or move a SPECIAL item that you previously assigned. It seems useful!
Best of all, this update resolves the issue of the Fallout 76 camp location since the launch of Fallout 76 (a problem my colleague Ian has seen and mentioned in our article on Fallout 76). .
Here is Bethesda's note:
"Your CAMP will no longer be automatically scheduled and stored if someone occupies your position when you log in to a server, instead you will receive a notification that your space is busy.If you decide to find a new home for your CAMP However, if you do not try to drop your CAMP, you will be able to switch to a new server where this post is vacant and your CAMP will be fully assembled and waiting for you. "
Finally, the second update adds Bulldozer, a new camp feature that allows you to remove small trees, rocks and other obstacles to facilitate the creation of your camp. This is very good news for those who like to build in Fallout 76.
Overall, these updates are pointing Fallout 76 in the right direction, although it's clear that much more needs to be done to make the game solid.
Fallout 76 players have been through a troubling time, Bethesda has been virtually silent since the release of the first major patch of the game. In his article on Reddit, the developer apologized for that, saying he would do more to communicate with the players.
"We know that you are frustrated and angry at the current state of affairs, whether it's problems you encounter in the game or lack of communication regarding patches, bets up to date or the news, "said Bethesda.
"We did not want silence to mean nothing was happening, we are sorry and understand that it was not the right approach, and we will work to create a better bridge between you and the development team. from BGS. "
Bethesda said it would publish articles on a weekly basis "to make sure you know what the studio is working on regarding issues you might encounter, your quality of life demands or new ones. features that they are eager to share. "
Does the return start here?
