Bethesda has detailed the upcoming Fallout 76 Patches that will be rolled out in the next several weeks, including a performance update that will be released on November 19.

Tomorrow’s update focuses on performance and stability alongside quest fixes. More interesting might be the other updates that Bethesda has planned for this year, especially for PC gamers.

Currently, the game doesn’t offer an FOV slider and Ultra-Wide screens aren’t supported. Luckily for PC gamers, Bethesda has now assured that these two features will be added in the coming weeks.

“So first and foremost, we have our first patch coming Monday, November 19 – and while this update has many performance fixes and optimizations in it, we know some of your biggest requests, including an increased Stash Limit and several PC Quality of Life adjustments, are not included in this update”, Bethesda writes. “These features are coming in the next several weeks.”

We’ve included details about this year’s Fallout 76 patches down below:

November 19 Patch – The next update will focus primarily on game performance and stability on all platforms but will also come with a list of fixes to quests, UI, C.A.M.P.s, and more. Patch notes will be available early next week. This update will be large compared to what we expect for patches going forward. Regular updates will always vary in size, but future updates should be much smaller in comparison.

Stash Limit Increase – We hear you loud and clear. We will be increasing the stash limit in the coming weeks. The current limit is there for technical reasons, to cap the number of items the game is tracking in the world, including every container and stash. We believe we have some ideas in both the short- and long-term that will address the size without risking stability, but this is one we need to take our time on to make sure it is done right.

Push to Talk for PC – After listening to all of your concerns, we have made progress on getting this into the game and it will also be included in an update in the next few weeks.

Ultrawide Support for PC – 21:9 support will be coming soon. We have seen it in testing and it looks awesome.

FOV Slider for PC – We know this is popular request for our PC players— look for an FOV slider soon.

“We teased in our launch letter some of what’s to come next. In addition to constantly making fixes and changes, there will be new content and game systems that add to the life and experiences in Appalachia”, Bethesda writes when looking ahead to 2019. “We’ll see new Vaults opening, new ways to easily improve your C.A.M.P.s, ways to create, team-up, and faction-based PvP, and many more free add-ons we haven’t talked about yet. In addition, you will see articles each week that highlight new events, content, and features we’re excited to share. We look forward to growing Fallout 76 with you.”

Fallout 76 is available now for PC and consoles.
