Updated November 18, 2018: An in-game message has now confirmed the servers will be offline from 9 AM EST on Monday, November 19, in order to complete the update. Bethesda recommends following their Fallout account on Twitter or jumping into their forums to keep up to date with progress.
Fallout 76 is a shared-world multiplayer survival game for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The title marks an all-new direction for Bethesda’s establishing post-apocalyptic role-playing series, allowing groups of survivors to explore, build settlements, and uncover secrets of West Virginia. It’s a multiplayer experience which requires you to work together and form alliances.
We have our first patch coming Monday, November 19 — and while this update has many performance fixes and optimizations in it, we know some of your biggest requests… are not included in this update. These features are coming in the next several weeks… The next update will focus primarily on game performance and stability on all platforms, but will also come with a list of fixes to quests.
Looking ahead, the team says that it wants to bring “new content and game systems” that add to life in West Virginia. New vaults will be opening, there will be new ways to improve your C.A.M.P., and even a faction-based player vs. player mode. It seems that a lot of this content will be free, but there might be paid expansions down the line. The first step is to fix the broken game.
