The latest Fallout 76 preview blog dropped this week, and it details some of the highlights coming in patch 11 – including the fact that it’s not arriving on time. “We had mentioned that the upcoming Patch 11 would arrive early this month, but a few of the improvements we’re planning to implement need a little more time to brew,” Bethsoft begins. “As a result, we’re currently planning to roll out this update in mid-July.”
What’s in it? The studio says it’s planning to reduce the rate of raw food spoilage and remove condition loss too, tweak item descriptions to be more useful, add bulk junk auto scrapping, power armor improvements, and a better progression path for lowbies.
“Lots of new Dwellers have been leaving Vault 76 for the first time over the past few weeks and, in Patch 11, we’re looking to make a few adjustments to help new and low-level characters have more gradual introductions to some of the game’s mechanics and challenges. For example, characters under level 25 will pay fewer caps when fast traveling, those under level 15 will have higher disease resistance, and we’re replacing a number of early-game Challenge rewards with items and other supplies that will give these Dwellers a better chance at survival. We’re also looking to reduce creature difficulty in a few sub-regions within the Ash Heap, the Savage Divide, and Toxic Valley so that Dwellers who are stepping out of the Forest for the first time have fewer encounters with higher-level enemies.”
