Bethesda has released the first post-launch update for Fallout 76. According to the release notes, this first patch addresses several performance issues and resolves hitches during gameplay. Moreover, the game client and servers have received additional stability improvements so theoretically the game should be more stable now.
Furthermore, this patch improves the game camera which now pans more smoothly when the player enters furniture, fixes an issue in which some enemies could chase the player farther than intended, fixes the Bureau of Tourism quest (the Prickett’s Fort Token Dispenser can now be repaired, and players can no longer walk through it) and more.
Also note that this patch is pretty big (around 15GB on the PC). The Bethesda launcher will auto-download this patch the next time you launch its client and you can find its complete changelog below.
