Bethesda has released Update 22 for Fallout 76 on the Public Test Server. According to the team, this beta update will let you playtest One Wasteland, Daily Ops, and Legendary Perk. It will also give you an early look at Fallout 76 Season 2, Armor Ace.
Here are some additional details about these aforementioned features.
Creature levels will now adjust up or down on the fly to more closely match your own level. For example, if you and a much lower-level friend both encounter the same creature, its level will simultaneously adjust to be higher for you and lower for your friend. Enemy loot and XP also scale when their levels are adjusted this way. As a result, you and your pals will be able to adventure anywhere together.
The game offers randomized and repeatable encounters called “Daily Ops”. Enemies in Daily Ops will feature unique “mutations” that may require you to strategize how best to take them out. Location, enemy types, and enemy mutations will be randomized each day to keep you on your toes. Every time you complete the Daily Ops objectives, you will receive some loot. You will also be able to claim even better rewards by finishing a Daily Op within certain time limits. You can tackle Daily Ops alone or in a group of up to four players, so round up your friends and head to the PTS to try out this challenging new addition.
This PTS update includes the new “Armor Ace and the Power Patrol” S.C.O.R.E. board. This board will arrive when Bethesda releases Patch 22 for the base game next month. You won’t be able to claim Season rewards in the PTS, but Bethesda is planning to increase the S.C.O.R.E. you receive from challenges in the test server. This way, you will be able to play test Daily and Weekly Challenges and rank up efficiently in the new Season.
Community feedback has already resulted in quite a few improvements for Legendary Perks, including the addition of many new Legendary Perk Cards in the previous PTS. This time, Bethesda is doubling the amount of Perk Coins you receive from scrapping normal Perk Cards so that you can upgrade your Legendary Perks twice as fast.
And that is that. As always, the Bethesda launcher will download this update once – and if – you opt-in to the PTS.
