There’s a new 30 GB patch out for the Fallout 76 beta. The purpose, like with any beta, is to introduce some changes to improve the gameplay and overall balance. And, of course, let’s not forget, a ton of bug fixes. This is not just any beta; this is a Bethesda beta. So, we’re basically in the stage of deciding which bugs will get fixed, and which will become features. Love you, Bethesda!
The Fallout 76 Beta got a patch yesterday, fixing some of the more pressing problems in the game. We all remember the client deleting the beta with dread. But still, it is a beta, so a number of issues are going to happen; there’s no way to avoid it. The developers also released the full patch notes, and here’s a portion of them:
- Stability: The Fallout 76 game client and servers have received significant stability improvements.
- Performance: Several issues have been addressed to resolve hitches during gameplay and other performance issues.
Many mid and high-level enemies have received additional balance adjustments. Some notable changes include:
- Scorched: Health and Damage Resistance have been increased for mid- and high-level Scorched.
- Super Mutants: Health and Damage Resistance have been slightly decreased for mid- and high-level Super Mutants.
- Melee Damage: Melee damage has been increased across many mid- and high-level enemies, particularly Mirelurks and Mirelurk Hunters.
- Crafting: Material requirements to craft Throwing Knives and Tomahawks have been increased. Additionally, Throwing Knives and Tomahawks can no longer be sold to vendors.
- Event Quests: The time required to restart a previously completed Event Quest has been increased from 45 minutes to 1 hour and 12 minutes.
The patch notes also include a whole bunch of bug fixes. These span between audio fixes, graphics, quests, and user interface. For example, the I Am Become Death quest. The notes say: “Launching a Nuke will now complete the “I Am Become Death” Quest for all teammates.” To check out the full patch notes, you can go to the official Fallout 76 website.
