Fallout 76 Servers Down - Maintenance Scheduled

Fallout 76 Servers Down - Maintenance Scheduled

It's just another indication that Fallout 76 was released in a really poor shape, as Bethesda scrambles to address many issues at once that are preventing players from even just engaging with the story in a single-player capacity. There are some building fixes in the patch as well.

Essentially overwriting the full game installation, there's obvious inefficiency in delivering Fallout 76's updates.

In layman's terms, that basically means that Bethesda is working on bugs and glitches in the game and is trying to get things in a more. presentable state.

The first big patch for Fallout 76 is out now, and at least on Xbox One and PS4 you're looking at a download in the region of 47GB. According to ComicBook, "Fallout 76" has garnered a significant amount of negative backlash from players on the popular review aggregator website.

Stability: The Fallout 76 game client and servers have received additional stability improvements.

Camera: The game camera now pans more smoothly when the player enters furniture.

So what can we expect from the update?

Over the weekend servers were brought down after multiple players launched nukes at once, while many others (myself included) find the game hard to put up with after frequent server disconnections and persistent performance plummets. In addition, you will see articles each week that highlight new events, content, and features we're excited to share.

Fallout 76 is available now for PC and consoles.

Graphics: The cover of Tesla Science magazine Issue 9 no longer appears solid red on pickup, or when inspected. Bethesda has also made a couple of fixes to PVP's Seek Revenge mechanic, and they both revolve around displaying accurate Cap rewards when either hunting down a player who killed you or killing a player who is seeking revenge.

The patch has dished out a number of performance and stability tweaks to break Fallout 76's previous 63FPS hard-lock on PC, and exceeding 60Hz no longer leads to janky slowdowns in combat or environments.

Meanwhile, the particular bug fixes are much more specific, including fixes to PVP events not triggering correctly and items magically breaking right after you've repaired them.

Though Bethesda set the stash limit to 400 pounds per player out of a concern for stability, the company thinks it has some solutions that will allow it to raise the stash limit without breaking the game.
