FALLOUT 76: INSIDE THE VAULT – “NIGHT OF THE MOTH” DEV DIVE & MORE! (Re-Print from Bethesda)

The Night of the Moth Update is on its way to Fallout 76 on December 8, and this week we’re sharing a closer look at some highlights from the patch in our latest Dev Dive video. We’ve also got details on Double S.C.O.R.E. Daily Challenges this weekend, an upcoming week of bonus Challenges, and a variety of in-game activities you can take part in during the following weekend. Read on to learn more!


NIGHT OF THE MOTH DEV DIVE

The Night of the Moth Update is going to introduce “The Mothman Equinox” Seasonal Event, which will bring you up close and personal with the Mothman Cult as you aid “The Enlightened” in a ritual to summon the Wise Mothman to Point Pleasant. This patch will also implement a wide variety of quality-of-life improvements, ranging from nearby corpse looting to legendary loot sharing, and beyond. We wanted to share a more in-depth look at the Night of the Moth Update with you, and so we sat down with Senior Quest Designer Carl McKevitt and Lead Designer Don Etgeton to chat about all of this and more. Watch our latest Dev Dive video below to learn about the new Seasonal Event and improvements that are on their way to the game, and to catch thoughts from the developers’ perspectives on the new update.

As mentioned above, the Night of the Moth Update is currently slated for release on December 8. If you own a PC copy of the game via Bethesda.net, you can try out everything in the new update right now in our Public Test Server. There’s still plenty of time to share your feedback with us, as well as earn a Mothman-themed Pennant for your C.A.M.P. in the live game, before playtesting concludes on December 7. We’ll see you in the PTS!


RANK UP FAST WITH EXTRA S.C.O.R.E. IN NOVEMBER!

Our adventures with The Unstoppables in Season 6 are going to come to an end when we release the Night of the Moth Update next month. Give your rank a boost by earning double the usual S.C.O.R.E. from all of the Daily Challenges you complete this weekend, until November 22. Starting the next day, on November 23, we’re adding some bonus Weekly Challenges to the lineup to help you rank up, claim rewards, and put a stop to the devious Diabolicals once and for all.

Double S.C.O.R.E. began yesterday and will last until 12:00 p.m. ET (17:00 UTC) on Monday. Bonus Challenges will appear at 12:00 p.m. ET (17:00 UTC) on Tuesday, November 23, and they’ll be available until Challenges reset the following Tuesday. The last full day to rank up and claim all of your Season 6 Scoreboard rewards will be December 7. We hope that you can use the double S.C.O.R.E. and bonus Challenges to finish out the Season on a high note during these final weeks.


THANKSGIVING WEEKEND ACTIVITIES

As we head into the holiday season, we know that many of you will be quite busy cooking, foraging for ingredients, and hunting down some Perfectly Preserved Pie as the final course for your Thanksgiving feasts. Once you’ve eaten your fill and finished sharing what you’re thankful for with your dinner guests, be sure to set aside some time for the cornucopia of in-game activities that we’ve prepared for you on Thanksgiving weekend.

If your pockets are feeling a little light, then gather all of your unwanted items and visit your favorite vendor to sell them for up to double the normal daily maximum number of Caps. Similarly, if Legendary Scrip is what you’re after, then you can head to the nearest Legendary Exchange Machine to trade your legendary items for up to twice the usual daily amount of Scrip. Finally, bring your stack of freshly minted Scrip to Purveyor Murmrgh’s shop at the Rusty Pick in the Ash Heap to pick up new legendary weapons and armor for 25% off her usual prices.

Caps-A-Plenty, Scrip Surplus, and the Purveyor Sale are all slated to begin at 12:00 p.m. ET (17:00 UTC) on Thursday, November 25, and they will last until Monday, November 29.


Next week, many in our studio will be spending some time with their families for Thanksgiving, so we will not have an article on November 25. When we return the following week, we’re planning to take a closer look at Fallout 76 Season 7, including rank-up reward previews. To all those who celebrate Thanksgiving, we hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend and that you are able to share it with your loved ones. Until next time, we’ll see you in Appalachia.

HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY, FALLOUT 76!

This Sunday, November 14, marks the third anniversary since many of us stepped foot outside the cozy confines of Vault 76 for the very first time. Now, more than 11 million of you have joined us in a combined effort to rebuild Appalachia, conquer the Scorched Plague, collect as much legendary loot as we could get our hands on, and so much more. In celebration of the community reaching this milestone, and because we love digging into some fun stats, we’d like to share a few numbers and bits of info about the community that we thought you might find interesting.

From the most popular items sold in player vending machines, to the deadliest enemies in the Wasteland, and beyond, here’s a look at some stats from the launch of Fallout 76 until now:

Thank you so much to everyone who has joined us in Appalachia since the door to the Vault first rolled open in 2018. We’ve had a blast evolving Fallout 76 and playing alongside you all as we’ve introduced each new questline, feature, and quality-of-live improvement. Here’s to spending many more years together in the Wasteland.

If you own a PC copy of Fallout 76 via Bethesda.net, and you haven’t had the chance to check out the “Night of the Moth” update in the Public Test Server just yet, then now is the perfect time. In addition to trying out the upcoming content early, and voicing your thoughts and feedback in our PTS Discord channels, you’ll also be able to earn a Mothman-themed pennant for your C.A.M.P. in the live version of the game. All you’ll need to do to earn your pennant is fire up the PTS and join a world during the current round of playtesting. We’ll grant Pennants to everyone who earned them within a week after we release the Night of the Moth Update. Log into the Test Server before playtesting concludes in early December to ensure the Mothman will always keep an eye on your home while you’re out adventuring.


GOLD RUSH AND MYSTERY PICK THIS WEEKEND

Whether you’re looking to unlock some Gold Bullion item plans, you’re on the hunt for legendary gear, or both, then this weekend has something in store for you! Yesterday, we kicked off Gold Rush and Mystery Pick in-game activities, which will put a little more Gold in your pockets and help you add some legendary items to your personal armory.

Each day during the Gold Rush, Gold Press Machines at Foundation and The Crater will be restocked with a surplus of Gold Bullion. Gather up all of your Treasury Notes, along with any you earn from Public Events over the next few days, and trade them in to receive up to twice the usual daily amount of Gold. Then, grab your collection of Legendary Scrip and head to the Rusty Pick in the Ash Heap to try your luck at Purveyor Murmrgh’s shop. Speak with the Purveyor and select her Mystery Pick option to exchange your Scrip for a completely random 3-star legendary weapon or piece of armor.

Both the Gold Rush and Mystery Pick events are already underway. Make sure to cash in your Treasury Notes and Legendary Scrip before both they conclude at 12:00 p.m. ET (17:00 UTC) on Monday, November 15.


Until next time, we’ll see you in Appalachia.

FALLOUT 76: INSIDE THE VAULT – FALLOUT 1ST LIMITED PREVIEW & WEEKEND ACTIVITIES (Re-Print From Bethesda)

We’ve got a brief update to share with you this week that includes details on our upcoming Fallout 1st Limited Preview, which will give all players the ability to try out a few Fallout 1st benefits for free for a little while. We’ve also got information on Double XP and Double Mutation Daily Ops, which are taking place in-game this weekend. Read on to learn more.

Starting next Tuesday, we’re kicking off a Fallout 1st Limited Preview, which will give all players the chance to take the Scrapbox and Survival Tent membership benefits for a test drive. All you will need to do is visit the Atomic Shop from November 9 – 15 to claim the Fallout 1st Limited Preview “item” for free, and then head to the Shop’s Fallout 1st page to unlock the Scrapbox.

76 Banner Scrapbox 750x300

Once you’ve joined a world, you can set up the Survival Tent as a forward operating base at a moment’s notice by opening the favorites menu, pressing the “Survival Tent” button, and finding a valid spot to build it. While the Survival Tent comes pre-loaded with a Scrapbox, you can also build one in your C.A.M.P. Find it in the build menu’s “Stash Boxes” tab, place it, and then begin storing crafting components to your hearts’ content. During the Limited Preview, you will also be able to unlock free items for your C.A.M.P., like the Mechanic’s Wallpaper and Floors, which will remain in your collection even after the preview is over.

If you would like, you can join Fallout 1st to retain access to the Survival Tent and continue adding scrap to your Scrapbox once the Limited Preview concludes. And don’t worry, you’ll still be able to remove scrap from the Scrapbox whenever you’d like—even if you decide not to become a member. Learn more about Fallout 1st and begin your membership by heading here on Fallout.com.


DOUBLE MUTATIONS, DOUBLE XP, DOUBLE THE FUN!

76 DoubleXP Banner 750x300

If you’re the type who likes to put your skills to the test then you’re in luck, because Double Mutation Daily Ops are returning! Starting a little later today, enemies in Daily Ops will begin sporting unique combinations of two Mutations, making them much deadlier than normal. If you are daring enough to take on these fearsome foes, you will also receive double the rolls on in-game currency rewards, and twice as many Legendary Cores, as well as double XP during your Daily Ops runs.

The excitement continues outside of Daily Ops with our latest Double XP weekend, which also begins today. Join a world in any game mode to level up like crazy by earning twice the usual experience from your exploits in Appalachia over the next few days.

Both events will last until November 8. Grab your gear and team up with a few friends to conquer some Double Mutation Daily Ops, and don’t forget to complete that repeatable “Gain XP” Challenge as often as you can to rank up and claim Scoreboard rewards more quickly over the next few days.


Until next time, we’ll see you in Appalachia.
