Bethesda have announced a hefty Fallout 76 patch for today, promising more than 150 fixes across the board, including issues surrounding challenges and quests as well as stability issues. We just hope we won't be looking at another 48GB,
To be fair though, Bethesda promised that the 48GB patch won't be happening again, claiming that successive patches will take up far less than the one that weighed a ton and fixed a few hairs.
Bethesda wrote that today's Fallout 76 patch will be landing at 9 am ET /2 pm GMT and, as was the case with the previous one, will launch on PCs first. "Placing it on PC first will give us time to make further adjustments as needed before releasing the patch on consoles", the company said.
Initially planned to launch on 14 January 2019, Bethesda decided to rush this patch out a bit sooner than planned. For what it's worth, they announced that Fallout 76 will be getting a new PVP Mode and player vending in January, although it seems that today's update won't be the one to bring these.
We're sure that Fallout 76 players will be happy about the patch, even if 150 fixes sounds barely enough to patch up anything about the game. We've no doubt that the most hard core of fans are still enjoying the heck out of the game but the, ahem, Bethesda's quality of workmanship has been subject to more than a little criticism along.
Numbers seem to agree for the time being the latest instalment in the popular franchise failed to meet its sales expectations, according to some sources. According to other sources, however, NPD claims that Fallout 76 has still been selling pretty well, becoming one of the best selling games in November 2018.
All in all, the new Fallout 76 patch is coming in a few hours now so we'll see soon enough what Todd and Co have got in store.
