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.
