While Update 20 to Fallout 76 is going to be missing a couple of features, the things that the update will introduce are being expounded on as promised. First up in the most recent dev post is the public teams system, which should help the survivors of Appalachia find groups to do things with much easier.
This new system is more than just an easy way for players to link up in four-person groups, though it does do that as well. Players who create public teams can choose one of six different goals, whether it’s hunting, events, building, exploration, or even roleplay, and everyone in the team will get an immediate boost to certain stats based on the goal selected by the public team leader. Players who stay in the team for a certain length of time will also become Bonded, which confers extra boosts to those specific bonuses. Better yet, the leader of a public team can switch the stated goal at any time.
The rest of the post announces the addition of multi-factor authentication for player accounts which is further detailed on the customer support website and shares a variety of stats for the past Fasnacht celebration event, just in case you like infographics.
