Recently, Bethesda announced that Fallout 76 was getting private servers that allowed you to customize everything from C.A.M.P. placements to survival mechanics. If you're adventurous, you can also change how physics work or enable a higher height limit for unprecedented shenanigans. More customization options will be added later, but you'll be happy to know that the update is rolling out right now.
The download is over 20 GB on Xbox so be sure to give it enough time. You can read the update highlights below. Keep in mind that Fallout 1st subscribers can create Custom Worlds, but anyone can join Public Worlds which offer unique characteristics.
- New Ways to Play: Experience Appalachia like never before with Public Worlds! Each Public World features specialized game settings, fit to a theme, and they are available to all players.
- Your World, Made to Order: Fallout 1st Members can now create Custom Worlds to build their own personalized versions of Appalachia using a wide variety of modifiable game settings.
- Daily Ops Expansion: Our latest expansion for Daily Ops introduces Double Mutation events every other weekend, a new enemy group, three new locations, and new rewards!
- Nuclear Winter Rewards: Nuclear Winter Mode has been deactivated. Perk Coins based on progression have been added to players’ accounts, and Nuclear Winter cosmetics can now be earned from Public Events.
There was an issue with Season 5 rank-up, and in response to that, Bethesda has extended the season by two weeks until September 21. The company said the following on the game's website.
We've discovered an issue affecting Season 5 rank-ups, where players in some cases are unable to claim the rewards for ranks they purchased using Atoms. This does not affect rank-ups achieved by earning S.C.O.R.E., but we are working hard to get this fixed up as soon as possible so that all players can enjoy the rewards they've earned.
