Fallout 76’s most awaited update, the Wastelander update has been delayed by Bethesda. This update was supposed to bring NPCs, companions, a new story quest, dialog options, and more to the post-nuclear online adventure. All the Fallout players have been waiting for this update but unfortunately it won’t be coming out this year, instead, it will be coming in 2020.
Bethesda talked about the reason behind this in the blog post which reads ” We’re excited about how Wastelanders is coming together but it’s going to need more time to be the best, most polished update it can be, so we are delaying its release to Q1 next year. We’ve continued to re-evaluate and change our processes to make sure the work we’re doing hits our quality bar, and yours. We apologize for this delay but know it will be worth the extra time.”
Private Servers Are Coming Next Week
They further added ” Wastelanders is turning out to be one of the largest expansions we’ve ever done, and it changes the entire world with human NPCs returning. We’ll be sharing more details over time, but here’s a first look at some of what’s to come in Wastelanders.” On the other hand, the good news is that the private servers are coming after and will be launching next week. It appears that those who want to have a private server might have to purchase it.
They also said that the player will able to mod their servers in the future and they will be revealing more stuff about it in the coming days. The Atomic shop is getting some changes, this is where you buy cosmetic as well as items that are gameplay related. They said in their blog post ” We want to create an Atomic Shop experience where players feel good about spending their hard-earned Atoms. To make the system more fun and engaging for all players, we plan on reworking parts of the Challenge and reward system next year to be clearer, more fun, and more impactful for all types of players.”
Moreover, they also said that they are been careful with everything they add because they don’t want to make the game unbalanced. Moreover, they will “avoid a situation where players can spend money to gain a competitive advantage or make the game worse for other players.” It is a good thing to hear from them but who knows how true it will be in the future. The developers also said that there are more updates coming in 2019 which will be fixes to the existing game and quality-of-life improvements many of the players have asked for. Moreover, they said that they are working on new events, the Legendary Player system, a public test server, perk loadouts.
