Fallout 76 plans to open its test server for the next major update in mid-March

Outfall.

Eager to try out the next major patch for Fallout 76? Well, you can’t. Not yet, anyway… but soon. The latest dispatch from the development team explains that the team is very aware how eager people are to test things, but it’s going to be a little bit longer. The plan is currently to open up the test server for mid-March, with features like S.P.E.C.I.A.L. loadouts and C.A.M.P. slots available to be tested by everyone once the test servers are finally online.

What are you supposed to do while you’re waiting to test out the update? Well, you could always sell some stuff to earn some caps, as this weekend’s Caps-a-plenty event will open up vendors to sell unwanted gear for up to 2,800 Caps every day. There are also a variety of community activities available for intrepid survivors out in the wasteland. It’s not as exciting as testing out the next patch, we know, but it’s still something to fill your time.

Tried to like this game but very few people are out and about and it’s difficult to find groups. Gave up. Waiting on FO5.

yeah… Ive been giving the game a try now that its had tons of patchs and a couple decent sized expansions.

Its a pretty solid game now, with a lot to do, but it just kind sucks going at it solo.

Cant seem to find many people who arent super far in the game yet to play through quests and stuff with. Everyone is level 80+ and just doing events and stuff. They dont care to hang around after the event, or to even be social.

Anyone know what the next major update is bringing to the game?

Probably same thing as every major update, more useless fluff to collect, fluff that will forever disappear the moment Bethesda will decide to take their server down. Maybe some “irrelevant NPC faction giving you a bunch of generic quests to grind for reputation”. Everything that will still keep few fans of the game playing it, nothing that will bring more new players into the game (such as user-hosted servers or in-game text chat, something that game like Valheim already has even in early access form).

I am glad that you do. Not sure why you felt the need to make such reply, though. I am perfectly capable of seeing that some people still play Fallout 76 using public data sources like Steam Charts and I am well aware of the fact that different people may like some games and dislike the others even if those games belong to same genre.

its nothing against you in particular its more about you only write a negative things.
FO76 is far far away from being my main game but the world is more interesting to me (after the npc update) and they did make good changes – not include the private server.

in every game there is good and bad things but i prefer always include the good things.

about steam, steam chart mean nothing when a game also have other launcher, its the same also for PSO,ESO,SWTOR and other MMOS, but yes i guess the average users look at steam as main source even if its not right.

I have plenty of reasons for writing negative things about this game. Which is perfectly fine because last time I checked there are no rules on this site which only allow writing positive things in any threads. And you can see plenty of other examples of people saying negative things about games, all you need to do to see this is open any thread with comments related to Star Citizen.

but the world is more interesting to me

I am glad you’re enjoying the world. Once again (I am repeating myself second time here), I’m not sure why you have such an urge to point it out. I never said you are not allowed to enjoy the world in this game or enjoy it more than any other worlds in other games.

You asked why so I told you why, so I don’t really get why you have this rush to respond again and again.

Have I said you can’t write a negative opinion? No.
You have all the rights to write what you want and I have the same for responding to you.

For me my comments can show the guy who asked about the game that not everything is bad.

Have fun playing what you want, everything good on my side.
