Bethesda has shared plans for some major fixes to Fallout 76 starting in early 2019, and have also pledged to be more transparent with the community.

Fallout 76 has been out a little over a month, but there’s already a laundry list of problems and issues with the game that fans have compiled.

Despite complaints that Bethesda is turning a blind eye to these complaints, the company’s latest release seems to show they do intend to stick with Fallout 76 for the foreseeable future.

In a release on December 19, Bethesda announced fixes coming to the Lever-Action Rifle animations, perk cards, and issues with crowd control to fix robots duplicating at Whitespring. Full patch notes for the fixes will be available at a later date.

Bethesda also announced that starting in 2019 patch notes for Fallout 76 would include thoughts from developers that are aimed at giving more context to the changes.

BethesdaWhitespring Resort is being targeted for a fix in the latest Fallout 76 update.

It’s clear Bethesda is trying to improve it’s transparency with the Fallout community after the numerous controversies that plagued the game after launch.

While the changes might be a good start, there will undoubtedly be those out there who say they don’t go far enough to address the game’s long list of issues.

The full December 19 release can be read below:


2018 is coming to a close, but we’re excited to share a little more with you about what you can expect in 2019. Today’s hotfix was the last planned update of the year, but we are still actively investigating and addressing issues and listening to your feedback. In January we’ll be back with more updates and news on what new content we’re excited to share with you.


Our sights are set for future updates. In mid-January, we will be releasing another patch that contains many fixes, including fixes for the Lever-Action Rifle reload animation, some perk cards, and we’re dealing some crowd control at the Whitespring by implementing a fix for the robots duplicating on the resort grounds. Full patch notes will be available at a later date that covers all the fixes featured in this update.

We understand that sometimes the patch notes themselves aren’t enough, and you want to know why we’re making certain balance changes or adjustment. Beginning in 2019, patch notes will include some brief thoughts from our developers that hopefully gives the community more insight into the changes we’re making and why.

We’re also hard at work on a new mode where you can work together, or not, without PVP restrictions. We’re already having fun playing it at the office and we’re hopeful to roll it out to all of you sometime in the first quarter of the year.

This is just the beginning of new content and continued updates. We’ll have a lot more to share throughout 2019.


Next week, our “Inside the Vault” falls on Christmas. To celebrate the holidays, we would love to share your best Fallout 76 holiday cheer.

During your ventures through Appalachia, capture your favorite festive photos using photomode and send them our way using #Holiday76 on Twitter or Instagram. We will be sharing our favorite images in our feature next week.

We welcome your feedback about the game and will continue to prioritize based on what you’re sharing. So please continue to share your feedback about the game with us. To all the explorers of Appalachia, we’re looking forward to growing with you.

We’ll see you in the Wasteland!



Fallout TV show coming to Amazon Prime

Bethesda Game Studios and Amazon are creating a Fallout TV series based off of the developer’s legendary RPG.

The studio is working with producers at Kilter Films Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the minds behind HBO’s critically acclaimed series Westworld, Bethesda announced. Amazon has licensed the rights to the Fallout franchise, paving the way for a full series commitment from the entertainment giant.

“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time… So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios,” Joy and Nolan said in a joint statement.

Amazon and Westworld creators are teaming up for a Fallout TV show.

Kilter and Amazon have an overall deal that will see them bring multiple shows to the Prime Video service. The Fallout series is reportedly in the development stages.

The world of Fallout and the miniature stories within the main campaigns of the titles give the producers a rich catalogue of lore and characters that could be integrated into series of their own.

“Fallout is an iconic global franchise, with legions of fans worldwide and a rich, deeply compelling storyline that powers it. And Jonah and Lisa are the perfect storytellers to bring this series to life,” Chief Operating Officer and Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studio, Albert Cheng said.

While the announcement confirms that a full show is in the works, Executive Producer at Bethesda Todd Howard has been looking to make a show on Fallout for quite some time.

“Over the last decade, we looked at many ways to bring Fallout to the screen,” Howard said. “But it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it right.”

The name of the series is currently being referred to only as ‘Fallout,’ though that can change depending on the development of the show.

Details for the upcoming series are scarce as the studio ended their brief announcement teaser with the test pattern that’s been synonymous with the Fallout series that reads: “Please stand by.”
