Fallout 76

Surrounded by controversies and mishaps, Bethesda has finally broken the silence about the matter. The company has apologised for its lack of communication with the community and detailed two major updates for Fallout 76.

December 4, 2018

The December 4 update will increase the Stash storage limit from 400 to 600 upon the community’s demand. Bethesda is open to increasing it further once they verify that “this change will not negatively impact the stability of the game.”

Upon taking down a boss, players will receive two to three items, depending on the creature’s difficulty level.

When hit with the Cryolator, players are now Chilled, Frosted, or Frozen depending on the number of times they’re hit. Movement speed reductions have been reworked from 2 hours to 30 seconds.

The update resolves an issue that affected players who die while overencumbered can only respawn at Vault 76. This will allow players to respawn at the nearest discovered Map Marker. Finally, the update will fix a bug that caused players to get stuck inside Power Armor.

December 11, 2018

The December 11 update will include a push-to-talk setting on PC, 21:9 resolution support and a field of view setting.

Your C.A.M.P. will no longer be automatically blueprinted and stored if someone is occupying your location when you log into a server. Instead, you’ll receive a notification that your space is occupied. If you decide to find a new home for your C.A.M.P. on that server, it will be free to do so. However, if you don’t attempt to place down your C.A.M.P., you will be able to switch to a new server where that spot is vacant and your C.A.M.P. will be fully assembled and waiting for you.

Last but not least, a new C.A.M.P feature called Bulldozer will be implemented, that will allow you to remove small trees, rocks and other obstructions.

Bethesda’s community team detailed the aforementioned information on a Reddit post while addressing –

We know you’re frustrated and angry at the state of things right now, whether it’s the issues you’re running into in the game, or the lack of communication about fixes, updates, or news. To be clear, this account is run by us, Bethesda Game Studios community team. 

 We didn’t want you to think the silence meant nothing was happening. We’re sorry and understand this was not the right approach, and we’ll work to make a better bridge between you and the dev team at BGS.

We still haven’t heard from Migliaccio & Rathod LLP about their class action lawsuit against Bethesda for refusal of Fallout 76 refund demands. Bethesda is finally responding to the community instead of dropping automated responses, which is a good thing. The company might as well go in the right direction.

I’m curious to see how Bethesda handles the overall situation and what’s next for Fallout 76. Just one random question. Do you think there will be another Fallout in the future? Let me know in the comments below.

Make sure you subscribe to our push-notifications and never miss an update on Fallout 76. Until next time, Happy Gaming!

  1. Nice! Stash increase will be appreciated. I am kind of glad it was lower at first, forced me to learn to be efficient, but you def need more space to store cool outfits and other items you just want to collect, like one of each Nuka Cola haha.

    I actually had that over-encumbered glitch where you had to spawn at 76. Glad to know it was a bug and not something permanent.

    Never seen a Cryolater used but man that sounds like a pain, hours? Kind of wonder why that wasn’t shorter to begin with. 30 seconds should be good for PvP.

    Notification that your CAMP space is occupied is better too, but I haven’t had that problem yet. The Bulldozer feature sounds awesome though.. will really help make more spots suitable.

    Solid updates. I read stash size will be increased more if it doesn’t cause stability issues too. Game still has a ways to go. I’m already having fun with it but it definitely feels like something is missing.. though I’m only level 15 and I always have to get to a bit further before a Bethesda game starts to really click. There are def some things I haven’t even really touched yet.

      • Yea, I am. It’s a really lonely vibe and at first I wasn’t sure I liked that. It’s even lonelier than other Fallouts, which is ironic since it is online. At first it felt too lonely, but the more I play the more it syncs up and the more immersed I am. Now the loneliness is what I appreciate most, and what sets it apart from other Fallout experiences.

        The more I learn, the more I appreciate it too.. and I’m talking little things like not sleeping on beds on grounds because you get diseases, so thinking “Sweet” when you run into an area with a metal bed you can heal on. I really like finding recipes to make new kinds of food, and finding plans to craft new items, as well as scrapping weapons/armor to get new mods. Also the world is awesome. I haven’t been far but I’ve seen really cool areas, like a plane that crashed on a mountain side and was converted into a camp, or last place I got to was really foggy, swampy and all around eerie, imagine Far Harbor from Fallout 4 but creepier. The world is definitely a step up over past Fallouts already and again I haven’t gone far. Actually I had to leave the foggy swamps because everything was too strong, so I look forward to leveling up and earning the ability to go see more places.

        My friend has played more than me and he is hooked. I can’t even get him to play BO4 Zombies with me and he was hooked on that before 76 haha. There is enough there that I think can last me until some solid new content and features are added, though I haven’t yet found that first thing that I LOVE, that first thing in every Bethesda game that makes the game really click. For example the first Bethesda game I played was Oblivion, and I was just leveling up at first, playing aimlessly. Then I found the Arena and got fame, and people knew me, and that was it for me. Went to other factions and did the same thing, enjoying having people recognize my accomplishments in the street, it really made me feel like a part of the world. I really haven’t played 76 much though so that thing could be in there, but so far I haven’t found it so as of right now what holds me back from loving the game is a slight sense of aimlessness. That is the one thing keeping me from recommending the game to most people.

  2. The only silence I want broken from Bethesda is them admitting they released a garbage game nobody asked for and so nobody bought. In the last 2 weeks I have seen about 5 of my 100ish PSN friends playing Spyro Reignited which I was delighted to see and surprised at too since Spyro was NEVER as big as Crash Bandicoot.

    Not a single person has played Fallout 76 lol and I couldn’t be more happier. I am so happy this game was a massive failure and critics and gamers are uniting to ridicule Bethesda for this mess. It feels so good and sends a strong message to anyone in the future that POINTLESSLY tries to add online to a game that never needed it and nobody ever asked for it, especially from a dev that never could have done a great job with delivering on it.

    I’d buy a new Fallout game that is a real Fallout game in a heartbeat. This is not even close to that. But as we know their next 2 games are going to be that sci-fi one and then The Elder Scroll VI. I wonder will they be online focused games???

    • I’ve contacted Bethesda for an interview. If they agree on it, I can start asking some serious questions and of course, I’ll take all your questions into account for an extensive and comprehensive interview.

  3. I knew they wouldn’t do anything meaningful with the stash increase ; I guarantee they plan on doing what ZOS has done with ESO, selling storage in the Crown Store. Since my 2nd day playing, my stash has been full, and I’m overencumbered by about 1200 constantly. I literally have to walk at a snail’s pace everywhere, and constantly die, because I can’t move/run during combat. I’ve been stuck in the same SE portion of the map for over a week now, and am nowhere near a merchant, so I can’t sell anything either. I’ve got weapons and armor in my inventory for levels 20-50, and could only drop them….which is not happening. Bethesda has taken one of the greatest gameplay features from their previous games/franchises…the ability to stash items at will….and shlt all over it.

      • Pretty much what the average reviewer has said about the game thus far. I’d give it a 5/10 at best. Numerous glitches, no voice-acted enemies or NPCs, no story, a horrible inventory system….and ultimately no reason whatsoever to continue playing. You literally would be better off going back and playing any of the previous Fallout games, + all of the user-created quests/mods, and skipping this game altogether.

    • Just FYI Bethesda said they are starting with 600 stash, just to see if giving more people more stash items messes up stability (more haha). They plan to increase stash further, barring any issues.

      I was full on day 2 of beta as well haha. There was a quest for first responders where you have to do a lap in a time limit to join them.. so last time I played, I stopped and figured my inventory out. First I needed to scrap EVERYTHING in my stash and inventory. I took everything out of stash, scrapped it all, then put it back with 150 lbs more space. Then I had to stop trying to save food and drinks. Crazy how much aid weighs! You really dont need to save them.. though it physically hurt to waste it all haha. Even if ur hungry or thirsty for a bit, way better than being unable to run. Stimpaks, rad aways and rad x are worth saving though.

      Hope that helps! It really sucks being overencumbered in such a big game.

      • Um, NO…doesn’t help my situation at all.

        First of all, I didn’t say anything about the beta….I’ve only played the game since launch, and have been stuck with the full stash and 1200-1500 lb inventory since day 2 (I’m Level 24 now) I’m overencumbered with stuff I CAN’T drop or scrap. I’ve built my C.A.M.P. , twice, including all crafting stations (didn’t re-use my stored CAMP). I’ve Bulked all of my materials, deconstructed every pipe weapon, rifle, shotgun, etc. to learn all their mods…and I’ve maxed out my Packrat perk, and other perks that make armor, weapons, ammo, etc. weigh less.

        I don’t know why you’re hell-bent on defending Bethesda, as you have in several posts now, but whatever your motivation is, it’s wasted on me. As I said, I’ve spent a TON of $$ on all of Bethesdas TES and Fallout games over the last 15+ years. I’ve been equal parts fanboy and critic of their games over those years….but I’m not cutting them any slack on this one. Apologists like you only make things worse. Bethesda deserves every bad review score and every bit of fan criticism they’ve gotten with this game.

        • Wow.. really wasnt expecting that haha. I totally misinterpreted your tone. Sorry if it seemed I was attacking you. I swear it was just friendly advice. I feel your pain and I was just trying to help. You are doing exactly what I did at first and frustratingly it still isnt enough. I actually would still be overencumbered if my buddy didnt bluntly point out how needless it was for me to save so much stuff. In order to finally get out from being over encumbered I had to fight every forward planning bone in my body and just live in the moment, taking only what I needed right then. The outlook that works for me is, if I really needed it, I wouldnt still have it.. especially aid and building materials in my case. Hopefully you can tough it out until Bethesda gets the stash up enough, hopefully into the 1000’s.

          I do enjoy discussing games, and Fallout is up a lot so Im commenting on it a lot, and I like the game so it reflects in my comments. It is exactly what others are doing, just from a positive perspective. I do hope the tone of these comment sections changes soon and I try to do my part. I just want people to pitch improvements. There is so much unconstructive hate. Your comment is constructive though so not implying you are part of that. You point out a very clear problem that I and so many people have, and Bethesda is already on it starting with 600 to see if it causes problems, and raising it more and more as they can. They are doing what they said and acting on feedback, so we just need to keep the constructive feedback coming.
