The latest Fallout 76 patch has now gone live on all platforms, bringing some significant changes to the game. As always, a big section of the patch is dedicated to bug-fixes, as well as performance and stability improvements. However, the patch also brings some interesting new features, including a new tool for the C.A.M.P., and the ability to respec SPECIAL points.
The Latest Fallout 76 Patch and What it Brings to the Game
The version 188.8.131.52 Fallout 76 patch is roughly 5 GB on consoles and 3 GB on PC. As of today, maintenance for all platforms should now have concluded, fully implementing the patch on all systems. First of all, the patch brings two key features which PC players have been calling for. Firstly, the patch adds support for 21:9 resolution for those players who have wider 21:9 aspect ratio monitors. Additionally, the missing FOV and Depth of Field sliders are now available in the game; made possible by a recent fix for the speed hacking bug. Finally, the patch adds one of the most requested features for PC players; a Push-to-Talk hotkey for the Voice Chat.
The Fallout 76 patch also makes some improvements to the C.A.M.P. system. The new bulldozing tool causes small obstructions ,like rocks and smaller trees to be removed when you build structures, and the topography can be subtly smoothed to make buildings rest more naturally in the terrain. All of this takes place automatically now when you place things in the building mode. Additionally, if you log into a new world and the location of your C.A.M.P. clashes with an existing player’s, you will now be able to place your C.A.M.P. somewhere else for free. If you don’t set it down somewhere else, it will be back in its original spot the next time you join a new world where the space is free.
The final key feature added in the latest patch is SPECIAL Re-speccing. Now, when you reach level 51, every time you gain a level you can choose whether to unlock a new Perk Card or re-spec. The re-spec option will allow you to reallocate one of your SPECIAL points from one attribute to another. The full patch notes are available on Bethesda’s official website.
