Bethesda Details Fallout 76 2019 Roadmap; 3 Major Updates Scheduled for Spring, Summer, and Fall


Bethesda’s latest Fallout title to release — Fallout 76 — didn’t do too hot with both gamers and critics. It launched with a ton of bugs, stability issues, and boring world events to do.

However, it seems that Bethesda is slowly gaining back some momentum with the game, slowly bringing it to what the game should have initially launched with. Today the company detailed their 2019 roadmap for Fallout 76 and if you’re a fan of the game, this should excite you! But before we dive into the new updates, check out the apology from Bethesda on the rocky Fallout 76 start:

“…. we know the game had a difficult launch, and we’ve made mistakes along the way. We share in your frustrations when we do. We’ll probably make a few more, and when we do, we will work to correct them as quickly as possible. Know that we’re fully dedicated to making this game the best it can be – and even more so, a platform for endless Fallout adventures for years to come.”

Bethesda then goes onto note in their blog post that there will be three major updates coming to the game and they are set to release in the Spring, Summer, and Fall of 2019. Each update will come with a slew of new storyline quests, side quests, and much much more.

The three major updates will be titled Wild Appalachia, Nuclear Winter, and Wastelanders. Each update will come with its own unique features, and thankfully, Bethesda detailed each one so fans can see excatly what is set to come to fallout 76 later this year.
