Fallout 76 Will Be Updated On A Week-To-Week Basis
A new interview with Bethesda Game Studios boss Todd Howard reveals that the developer has the intention to update Fallout 76 on a week-to-week basis once it releases in November.
"One of the things that we really like about Fallout 76 is that we've built it so that we can support it on a month-to-month and week-to-week basis," Howard said in the video you can check out below.
"So our plan is, this is the game, and we know based on our previous games that people are gonna play literally for years. So it's something we're gonna keep updating.”
The director also added that in his vision the game is set to last “two years from now,” which is the least you would expect for an online title and the biggest challenge for a dev team that’s always been working on single-player experiences.
"And the way the whole system is built, connected, we can add things the players like more of, change parts of the game. And that part is really, really exciting for us.
That we have the game that we're launching, but then we also have the game that it's gonna be a year from now and two years from now. And we're gonna do that with the community, so that makes it extra great."
The Fallout 76 beta launches on Oct. 23 on Xbox One and then a week later for PC and PlayStation 4, too. When that happens, we’ll hopefully learn more about how it actually works and feels.
