The Fallout 76 beta still has one day left before ending, but Bethesda has seemingly already learned a lot from fans and is looking to incorporate their feedback into the full release of the game.

Over on Reddit today, Bethesda said a thank you to all fans that took part in the Fallout 76 beta. Along with doing so, they also addressed many of the problems that they’ve become aware of and are looking to fix on or soon after the launch of Fallout 76.

As of now, these are the changes that Bethesda is looking to incorporate shortly:

  • Ultra-Wide Support: We will support 21:9 post launch. Once available, or shortly before, we’ll be sure to post our patch notes that let you know when to expect it.

  • Larger Stash Size: We’ve seen this one come up a lot and understand the frustration. While the Stash size at 400 weight limit can get easier to deal with over time, we do plan on increasing it in the future.

  • Push-to-Talk: While we aim to create a consistent experience no matter what platform you’re on, we understand that some of you on PC would like the option for Push-to-Talk. Our goal with voice chat being on by default is to highlight that the world is alive with real people, other players like you. We like to start with encouraging player interaction and will look into adding this in the future.

  • FOV Slider: We haven’t supported FOV sliders in our previous games as it is known to break a lot of animations and causes a lot of clipping to occur onscreen. You do have the option to zoom out in third person on PC by holding View and moving the mousewheel, but we won’t be able to have it for first personview.

  • Exploits of Various Types: Many exploits we’ve seen reported have been known and will be addressed in a future update.

  • Issues with social menu and inviting friends/making teams/etc.: Those who were experiencing issues with the social components will find that many of these issues have been fixed. We will continue to fix issues as they arise as fast as we’re able to, so keep letting us know when you run into them.

  • Hunger not being sated: Some were saying their “Hunger bar” wouldn’t replenish no matter how much they ate or how cleared of diseases they were. This issue has been addressed and will be in a future update so no more hungry dwellers.

  • Loud Gunshot/Noises: The issue of players hearing sudden random gunshot/loud sounds around Appalachia will be addressed in a future update near launch.

From the first reveal of Fallout 76, Bethesda has made no qualms about adjusting and making changes to the game as needed. Having never done a multiplayer game of this manner before, this is something wholly new for Bethesda and they seem to be keeping to their word when it comes to further curating and improving Fallout 76 alongside their community.

Fallout 76 is slated to finally release next week on November 14 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
