Fallout 76 July 26 Update Highlights

Ahead of the upcoming update, which is happening tomorrow, Bethesda has revealed some of the highlights that players can expect. Aside from that, the Purveyor Murmrgh and Minerva are each hosting sales this weekend.

New Update Smaller Than Previous

The update will be smaller than some of the larger updates that Bethesda have released before that bring content to the game. The main focus will be addressing the bugs and that includes a number of issues that have been reported by the community like reduced energy weapon durability, incorrect Meat Week rewards, and Grahm wandering away from the grill during his Meat Cook. It will also bring some new items to the Atomic Shop over the coming weeks.

Maintenance Downtime Longer

Aside from the new content, the maintenance on Tuesday will be little more downtime than usual target of two to three hours. The reason for the longer maintenance time was due to Bethesda planning to implement some behind-the-scenes improvements for processes and services, which can only be done while offline. The maintenance time for Fallout 76 will start at 10 AM ET on July 26, 2022.

Public Test Server on Expeditions

The Public Test Server is currently testing the next major update which will bring Expeditions to the game. Players who have already joined PTS can conquer the first two missions in The Pitt, meet new Responders at The Whitespring Refuge, complete Refuge Daily Quests, and try out some new rewards. After playtesting, Bethesda urges testes to give their feedback so that they can continue improving on Expeditions.

Get Pennant for PTS

For players who joined PTS, they will unlock the new Pitt-themed pennant for their C.A.M.P. in the live game. Bethesda will roll out the pennant to all accounts that earned it in the days following the release of the Expeditions Update later this year.
