Fallout 76 will have a steady stream of updates coming in August and September, according to a Summer 2019 roadmap shared on Twitter.
Starting on the first day of August, there will be a Seasonal Meat Week Event — which will afford players the opportunity to earn Legendary Scrip and other items appropriately themed for the hottest season.
August 13 will see a new Nuclear Winter feature called Choose Your Own Perks — meaning duplicate perk cards award Overseer Tickets, which effectively allow users to, well, ‘choose their own perks.’
A week later, on August 20, display cases will become available for players C.A.M.P.s. More importantly, players will be able to explore a new Vault. Different missions will be rotated on a weekly basis.

August isn’t the only month with content coming for Fallout 76. September will also see a new map and quality-of-life improvements for the game’s Nuclear Winter, in addition to Legendary Vendor Sales and improvements to the events system.
As Joystickr recently reported, the developers behind Fallout 76 have just recently implemented a hotfix to the game’s Patch 11 — which itself was delayed to finalize improvements.
The game hasn’t been particularly well-received since launching on November 14, 2018. It currently holds a Metascore of 52 and an atrocious User Score of 2.8 for the PC version. Nevertheless, Bethesda Softworks has stuck with the game by constantly implementing quality-of-life updates, squashing bugs, and rolling out new content. However, no amount of patchwork will ever be able to raise Fallout 76 to the level of Fallout 4 — which is a more attractive (and free on Xbox Game Pass) offering for those looking to get their Bethesda fix while patiently waiting for the next Elder Scrolls title.
What do you think of Fallout 76? Is the game in a better state now than when it launched — and, if so, do you think it deserves more favorable review scores? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
