A 100 days from the exit of Fallout 76, Bethesda has decided to share its programs regarding the evolution of its latest, to say the least controversial, title.
The developer seems to want to overturn the fate of Falout 76 by offering free adjustments and content for the whole 2019.
Here the official announcement, taken directly from the Bethesda site:
There is nothing more exciting as the beginning of something new, for you and for us. Knowing that you are in the millions on our side in this new adventure is an immense encouragement for our study. Thank you for staying with us as we continue to better understand this online experience together. And "together" is just the right word!
Thanks to your constant feedback, we have managed to fix many of the main problems and have made many improvements to the game. We also make several changes to the behind-the-scenes game that are not visible behind the scenes. We've enhanced the performance, unveiled the tricks, and found ways to make the gaming experience more enjoyable for everyone. There is still much to do but we are pleased to inform you that server and gaming stability is now better than 300% compared to the first days. We are thrilled to see how much you spend on the game, with an average time of 4 hours a day.
We know however that the game had a complicated publication, and we made some mistakes along the way. We share your frustration when it happens. Happen again. In those cases, we will work as fast as possible to run for cover. We are absolutely determined to ensure that this game does its best and, above all, that it becomes a platform for endless future adventures in the world of Fallout.
That's why we're excited to announce some of the free Fallout 76 content we're working on for 2019.
Thanks again for staying with us. It is a privilege to have such passionate and determined fans. We have great plans for the 2019 and we want to continue to receive your feedback on everything we do. We hope you will continue to share your thoughts on forums, on Reddit, in videos and on streaming. It is your voice that drives us to do more and more, and your support is everything to us. We will do everything to deserve it.
