Fallout 76 krijgt morgen weer een nieuwe update en in aanloop naar deze aanstaande release heeft de uitgever alvast een overzicht van details gepubliceerd. Dit is nog niet een definitieve changelog, maar het geeft wel zicht op wat spelers mogen verwachten.

Een belangrijke toevoeging is dat spelers nu de privacy kunnen instellen in een privé wereld, dit naar aanleiding van veel kritiek op dat anderen zich met jouw wereld konden bemoeien. Dat is na het updaten nu instelbaar, zodat je ook daadwerkelijk een privé wereld hebt.

Als laatste wordt er nog een kerstevenement aan de game toegevoegd, de specifieke details daarvan tref je verderop in het onderstaande overzicht.


Since the launch of Morgantown for Nuclear Winter, we’ve seen lots of requests from Overseer Candidates who want the ability to choose which map they’d like to play on during a match. We’ve seen lots of requests for this from the community, as well. In Update 16, The Forest is returning alongside Morgantown, and you will be able to cast a vote for your map of choice at the start of each new match. Once the ballots are in, the map that received the most votes will be selected for that match.

As with any change to the Candidate selection process, ZAX is pretty excited to tell you more about this one, so keep an eye out for a new ZAX Transmission on Fallout.com in the next few days.


Following some community discussions and feedback, we’re introducing an option in Update 16 that will help Private Worlds offer a true solo experience, if you so choose. To do this, we’re adding a button to the Play Menu when you highlight Private World mode that will let you toggle between “Team Only” or “All Friends.” By choosing “Team Only,” just you and players you’ve already formed a team with can enter your Private World. Selecting “All Friends” works just like Private Worlds do now, allowing anyone from your friends list to jump into your Private World while you’re there.


Starting December 12, whenever you spot Scorched dressed in festive attire, or hear their joyous jingle bells, it’s time to go on the hunt. Each “Holiday Scorched” you take down will drop a Holiday Gift for you to unwrap. Gifts can be low, medium, or high-quality, and may contain anything from a lump of coal, to rare plans and recipes. You’ll also get some wrapping paper so that you can craft a few Holiday Gifts of your own to share with your fellow Dwellers.

Holiday Scorched Event Details:

  • Start Date: Thursday, December 12 at 11:00 a.m. ET
  • End Date: Thursday, December 26 at 12:00 p.m. ET

As part of the Christmas festivities, when Update 16 drops, players will be able to claim a free Santatron from the Atomic Shop! Players can build the Santatron Station in your CAMP, and the bot will scan the area to collect treats like candy, toys and even coal. Also, while the Holiday Scorched Event is live, the Santatron will occasionally give a Holiday Gift of random quality to the owner.


Lastly, the Halloween event Nuclear Winter will be coming back as well in time for the holidays for a limited time. There are new Christmas-themed Nuclear Winter challenges and cosmetic rewards, with each challenge appearing each day until all six are live, All of them will be available until January 6, 2020.
