Bethesda Softworks have announced a Fallout 76 update that will address many of the glitches reported by the community, as well as introducing a slate of new fixtures for players to look forward to.

The reputation of the legendary studio has taken a hit with the launch of Fallout 76, but Bethesda have been retracing the many missteps made along the way, and will continue that trend with the upcoming patch to the post-apocalyptic shooter.

In an ‘Inside the Vault’ blog post, Bethesda revealed what’s coming up, including more content for the game, new ways to interact with other, and a lot more.

Bethesda SoftworksFans of Fallout 76 have had issues since the game has released, and the developers hope that a new patch will fix some of those problems.

The time and date for the patch has yet to be confirmed, but fans can expect an update to the game in January 2019.

When it comes, players can expect hours of content to bask in, with the addition of more quests and vaults, while new weekly in-game events will keep the game fresh for completionists.

Bethesda is also expanding Fallout 76’s multiplayer offering with a new PvP mode and Player Vending that should give players a much better way of acquiring or disposing of items.

Bethesda SoftworksThe announcement for the latest iteration of the game was met with tremendous excitement, the release and post-launch incidents not so much.

The studio likened the upcoming patch to the December 11 update that fixed stability and performance issues, while introducing major changes to its C.A.M.P. feature. So, players can expect a number of changes when it finally comes through.

Bethesda recognises that they have a bumpy road ahead of them to fix the many problems they have faced since Fallout 76’s launch, and will hopefully get on the right track in 2019 with this update.

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.”
