Fallout 76 starts testing its One Wasteland leveling revamp

One of Fallout 76’s more significant design flaws has a big fix in the works — and you can test it out right now.

On the PTS, Fallout 76 is putting its One Wasteland revamp through the paces. This update will make the whole game accessible to all players. “Creature levels throughout Appalachia will now adjust up or down on the fly to more closely match your own level as you come across them,” Bethesda said. “Enemy loot and XP also scale when their levels are adjusted this way, so you won’t miss out on any rewards. As a result, you and your pals will be able to adventure anywhere together—even if there’s a level gap between you.”

Also being tested is a new Daily Ops system, the second season (called Armor Ace), and legendary perks.

Bethesda said that it’ll be releasing the delayed Colossal Problem public event on Tuesdaay, August 18th. Next week’s patch will also “include fixes for replacing walls with doorways in build mode.”

This I’d like to see. Maybe even come and play when it’s out.

One Tamriel was game-changer (HARHARHAR! pun intended) in TESO. So… why not?

Won’t affect me too much but i’m glad to see it’s happening eventually. Something that frustrated me a lot was when I built a camp at Whitesprings because it has a lot of flat, uncluttered ground, and got attached by level 42 ghouls (when i was ~10-15 and with crap gear and weapons).

Definitely overreached a bit. I suppose I could use this scaling to build in the lower-right area of the map, but those areas look gross and ugly and I wouldn’t want to even if I could.

Wish they would get started on Fallout 5, I’d rather play offline with mods. Good thing the older fallouts will keep me company for a while.

You won’t see a Fallout 5 until at least well into the upcoming console gen (mid 2020s or later). Its all about Starfield and getting TESVI ready right now. Just as ESO was to handle the wait for the next mainline of that series, Fallout 76 is to handle the wait for FO6.

Usually there’s at least 3 years between games, so it’ll likely be at least be 2028 before we’ll see a new fallout, but who knows?

My biggest gripe with playing on public servers was that I’d be trying to quest in an area as a level 20-something, then run into a part of the map for a quest that happens to have a couple 100+ level people there and suddenly I’m face-planted left and right.

I’m definitely looking forward to this being released. I may go back to playing mostly on public servers instead of private instances after this is put in place.

I never saw this for myself as I hit 50 very early on, but it’s been painfully obvious from watching my wife level. You just never know what to expect when you show up to a new location. Very happy that it’s finally getting fixed

I like ESO’s system, so I’m ok with that! :)

Yep. “Worked once, will work twice.”
