Fallout 76 getting first patch today since game was released

by: Dan -
More On: Fallout 76

The big release last week was Fallout 76, and what has become something of "the norm", it came down to retail with many known bugs and limitations that were unable to be corrected prior to hitting the release date.  However, after several weeks of B.E.T.A. testing and with a few days of full on server stress testing on the books, Bethesda is releasing the first patch today to the game to work on some improvements when they took the servers offline at 9:00 a.m. EST this morning.

While we wont know exactly what was included with this patch for a few more hours, the description from the official site appears to move it toward underlying performance and those glaring game play issues with bugs in camps, quests and so on.

November 19 Patch - 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, UI, C.A.M.P.s, and more. Patch notes will be available early next week. This update will be large compared to what we expect for patches going forward. Regular updates will always vary in size, but future updates should be much smaller in comparison.

While it is unlikely that sum other known issues and player demands (stash size) are address, we wont know until the servers come up and the release notes are made available.

[UPDATE: DAN]  and the servers are back up after 3.5 hours of maintenance.  Happy hunting!
