It has a been a rocky start for Bethesda’s Fallout 76, but it seems that the studio managed to make the game better and save as many players as they could. The plan for the future is clear – attract all those gamers that left (and some new ones) by offering great content. In the newest blog post, the studio announced its plans for the upcoming year.
“We are aware of our mistakes, but we are doing our best to fix them and make this game reach its full potential. The studio believes Fallout is a franchise that will be around for years to come.”
To show that they have reasons to be optimistic, Bethesda mentioned that we could expect no less than three major updates for Fallout 76. These include Wild Appalachia, Nuclear Winter, and Wastelanders. As expected, the studio revealed most details about the first update. As for the other two ones, you can expect new game modes, quests, and events, but we will probably know more when their release date gets closer.
Plenty of New Things to Come
When it comes to Wild Appalachia, the party will start on March 12th. The Fasnacht Parade, a time-sensitive event, and new features in the form of brewing and distilling will be available immediately. Seven days later, the players who complete the event will receive Fasnacht masks.
The biggest addition, however, is the Survival mode, which will come to Fallout 76 on March 26th. Bethesda describes it as PvP taken to the next level, including fresh challenges, tempting rewards, and fewer restrictions.
The following weeks will bring new features, including vending machines and cameras. An event known as the Sheer Terror will be available on April 9th, and the studio describes it as an opportunity to identify the hidden secrets of Appalachia.
In May, we will get to play even more new quests, as well as a customizable backpack feature. The last in the line of small updates will arrive on May 23rd when a new Purveyor will become available to give an opportunity to trade legendary items for new gear.
The important thing to mention is that all the updates mentioned above will be completely free. Bethesda emphasized that they will listen to the feedback of the community so that they could make Fallout 76 even better throughout 2019.
