We’re not even to the first part of Bethsoft’s Fallout 76 roadmap, and it’s already hit a snag, but it is a truly minor snag: The studio is delaying patch 7 – Wild Appalachia – by one whole day. A day!
“We are moving the release date of our first Wild Appalachia content back one day on all platforms,” the studio posted. “We just need a little more time to brew. Experience the new quest, crafting station, & much more starting now on March 13.”
Yes, a whole extra day before you can dive into the video game kegger we promised you. In the meantime, check out the game’s Fasnacht Parade, the limited-time event quest kicking off next week (we assume that won’t be delayed).
“You and any other dwellers who wish to take part must speak with the Master of Ceremonies in Helvetia and then divide and conquer to find and aid the town’s robotic shopkeepers in setting up for the annual parade. You and your compatriots will be asked to assist with a variety of party prep duties that may have you stepping on stage to play a cheery tune, choosing the perfect decorations, or exterminating some buzzing pests, among many other activities. If you find and aid the Protectrons quickly enough, they will be able to march in the parade. Be sure to remain vigilant! Times have changed since the pre-war days, and all that commotion is sure to attract some party crashers.”
What was this game about again? Oh right, post-apocalyptic mayhem. For you folks not pacified by booze and parades, expect the promised balancing pass on heavy weapons and energy weapons, budget and placement adjustments for C.A.M.P.s, and the new challenge tracking system.
