Bethesda have confirmed that they will significantly reduce the cooldown on Public Events so players can join them more frequently. On top of this, Bethesda also said they will disable Survival Mode Beta on 01 October 2019.

In their latest blog post, Bethesda have detailed what exactly Fallout 76 devs have been working on lately and what is next for the game in terms of improvements and content updates. At the moment, the focus is primarily on the Public Events, which recently received big changes in Patch 13.

Of course, one update wasn't enough to make the feature perfect and that's why Bethesda are working on another batch of improvements that should make Public Events a more solid experience for players. With Patch 14, Bethesda are going to significantly reduce the cooldown so that players can join Public Events more often. 

Since Events vary in terms of length and difficulty it's hard to predict exactly how long the timer will be in all cases, but players should notice Public Events popping up at least twice as quickly after Patch 14, Bethesda confirmed in the blog post.

Furthermore, the developer said that they are planning more extensive improvements for Public Events with their second phase of changes coming pretty soon. These will include changes to rewards and loot along with some additional adjustments for the already mentioned cooldown. More details on these changes will be revealed as we approach those updates.

Bethesda are also disabling the Survival Mode Beta on 01 October 2019. They explained the decision by saying that Nuclear Winter now offers its own unique competitive flavour and the biggest update to the battle royale mode is yet to come.

And last but not least, the team will revisit players' feedback after the launch of Wastelands DLC and make additional changes to the game to improve PVP if necessary. They made it clear that Adventure Mode and Nuclear Winter won't be affected by this adjustment.
