Fallout 76 Update Notes – January 14, 2020

Today, we’re releasing a new update for Fallout 76 in order to make some behind-the-scenes adjustments for the base game in preparation for our upcoming Wastelanders update. We’re also fixing a few bugs that were safe to implement without disrupting our work on Wastelanders. We are still working full-steam-ahead on the Wastelanders update, and when it is released later this quarter, it will contain plenty of new content for you to explore and conquer, as well as a large wave of bug fixes for the base game.
