The entire year's been planned.
A Fallout 76 roadmap has detailed all the content that players should expect in 2019.
“Thanks to your continuous feedback, we have been able to fix many of the top issues and have made numerous improvements to the game,” Bethesda advised on its website. “We also make scores of changes under the hood that aren’t as visible. These include changes to improve performance, detect new exploits, and make the experience smoother for everyone.”
Here’s what to expect:
