Bethesda will add FOV slider, increased stash size and push-to-talk option in new Fallout 76 updates which will roll out steadily until the end of the year. A new patch will go live on 19 November 2018 and will focus on stability issues.

Fallout 76 is set to receive a bunch of new updates by the end of the year, the developer Bethesda announced. Some of the new features will include increased stash size which was one of the most requested changes since the game launched on 14 November 2018. Bethesda explained that the current stash limit is there for technical reasons.

They believe that some of the new ideas will address the stash size problem without risking the stability of the game. No fix is imminent as Bethesda wants to make sure this one is done right.

Push to talk option on PC was also one of the requested features since beta and it's coming in the next few weeks. Bethesda previously revealed they will not change PC chat feature as they want to encourage player interaction but it looks like players voices were louder than expected.

Ultrawide support is another PC update, the players with 21:9 monitors will finally get to experience the game in full resolutions without black bars. The last exclusive update for PC Master Race is FOV slider, and it will be implemented by the end of 2018.

Bethesda said their goal is to update the game on a regular basis while listening to the Fallout 76 community needs. They will look to include the most requested changes as soon as possible but have asked for patience as they may shift workloads to balancing needs and server stability.

The next update will go live on 19 November 2018, and it will mainly focus on stability and performance issues. It will also include fixes to some quests, UI, and C.A.M.P updates. The full patch notes will be revealed early next week.

Hopefully, these updates will bring much-needed improvements to Fallout 76. After a pretty rocky start, many players voiced their discontent by review bombing the game on Metacritic, asking for bug fixes and calling out Bethesda for releasing an empty and unfinished game.
