Fallout 76 improves power armor and the new player experience

And now I can't move.

You might feel like striding across an irradiated wasteland in a full set of power armor somewhat undercuts the feeling of bare-bones survival that’s key to the experience of Fallout 76, but power armor has long been a part of this franchise and that’s just how it is. Besides, you can enjoy that power armor even more with the game’s most recent patch, which adds in a number of improvements to the experience of using the bulky armor. A number of the improvements are behind the scenes and won’t require player action, but you may find yourself moved to a train station or in need of re-tuning your armor when you log back in. The plus side is, well, better armor when you use it.

Of course, new players are not getting their own suits of power armor, but the game has been adjusted so that the new players will have an easier time getting up to the power armor levels. Enemy spawn levels have been compressed, diseases can no longer be acquired at lower levels, and so forth. Check out the full patch notes for all of the detailed changes.

64.47 GB patch according to the launcher. Can that be right?

Half my time in this game ends up me trying to find more fusion cores. I hate power armor.

That’s a common issue early-game, but at endgame or once you know the map, fusion cores are so plentiful you’ll be literally throwing them away. (Or at least trying to sell them to other newer players.)

Game just needs some more compelling content, right now aside from leveling and getting better loot there’s almost nothing to aim towards. Nothing to conquer. It’s just “go out and grind shit till you don’t have to anymore”, why not just play fallout 4 or some other good multiplayer game instead?

True… it lacks any form of endgame aside from “Watch level increase incrementally slower.”
