Bethesda announced that another big update for Fallout 76 is coming in January 2019. Additions will include new quests, daily events, vault openings, a new PVP mode and Player Vending which will allow players to sell their own items.

In their latest blog post on, the developer revealed future plans for Fallout 76 content which will introduce two major features to the game. Bethesda haven't shared any specific details about January update but we should get the official patch notes in the upcoming days.

Player Vending will give players the option to sell their own items, meaning that everything you collect can be sold to other players for a specific price. It's unclear if this will be a standard shop where players can simply put their stuff for sale online or maybe something similar to an auction house in World of Warcraft. 

This could become a great way to make some in-game money and get rid of stuff you don't need, and it could be a helpful feature for those who don't fancy grinding for a certain item and would rather spend some caps on it.

Another big addition is the new PVP mode but unfortunately, that's everything Bethesda said about the new feature. Currently, if you get attacked by other players in Fallout 76 as long as you don't react and strike back it is almost impossible for the opponents to kill you. 

Maybe Bethesda aims to change this in January patch? It's possible that a new PVP mode could remove the combat restrictions and add a more classic PVP experience. Some players wouldn't like these changes of course, and that's why it's crucial that Bethesda gives players the option to choose which gameplay experience they prefer.

Along with these two features, the developer also mentioned new Vault Openings which will introduce more content and areas to explore. Additionally, Fallout 76 players will get new quests, weekly in-game events and of course, much-needed performance improvements and bug fixes.
