Fallout 76’s multiplayer adventure hasn’t been the end of the world for the franchise, but neither has it been an unparalleled success. Numerous bugs and server stability issues arrived with last week’s launch, and Bethesda is fighting those fires first to bring the game up to par.
A “large” November 19th patch is going to add “many performance fixes and optimization” as well as adjustments to the UI, player camps, and quests. Coming hot on the heels of that patch will be an increase in the size of the stash, a push-to-talk function for PC users who aren’t appreciating the mouth-breathing going on around them, and an FOV slider.
The studio said that better features will come in 2019: “We’ll see new Vaults opening, new ways to easily improve your C.A.M.P.s, ways to create, team-up, and faction-based PvP, and many more free add-ons we haven’t talked about yet.”
Worth noting here is that we have some sales stats out of the UK: While Fallout 76 was the third biggest box seller last week in the UK, GIbiz says it’s “off to a slow start” with rather wimpy physical sales compared to even Fallout 4 three years ago.
