After just one day’s delay, minor indeed, Bethsoft has rolled out Fallout 76’s next big thing – against an admittedly much more crowded multiplayer field than the one it saw when it launched last fall. On the other hand, how many of Fallout’s rivals have sweet keg parties?
“Today we released the first slate of content for Wild Appalachia, a free update that brings a series of new quests, features, events, crafting systems and more to Fallout 76,” Bethsoft says. “Players can dive in now to start a brand-new quest that will teach them to brew up tasty beverages that will help (and potentially hinder) their ability to take on the horrors of Appalachia.”
I went Reddit-diving because I love our readers just that much and you know what? People are pretty excited about this update, or at least the full rollout of it that’s yet to come. There’s a heavily upvoted thread right now declaring that this patch “begins the path to full MMO.” Food for thought.
“We’ll also be releasing regular patches alongside Wild Appalachia to continue making updates and balance changes as well as introducing other new features such as player reporting and challenge tracking,” promises the studio. That’ll include tweaks to C.A.M.P. mechanics, the promised PvP survival mode, and player vending – plus Fasnacht begins next week. You can watch the new trailer below.
