Welcome back to Inside the Vault! This week, we’re sharing a new video we created to walk you through the inventory improvements coming with our next game update on Tuesday. We’re also running a pair of in-game events this weekend that will net you Double XP and some bonus Caps! Read on to catch the details.
INVENTORY UPDATE INCOMING
On Tuesday, January 26, we’re planning to release our first update of the year, which will include a variety of inventory-related quality-of-life improvements. In case you’d like a refresher on the changes that are on the way, we’ve put together a video overview detailing them in-game so that you can get up to speed before next week’s update.
In addition to the improvements we’ve already shared, we’re also making an adjustment to the outlines that appear when building in your C.A.M.P., Shelters, or Workshops. Going forward, whenever you find a valid spot to place an object, its outline will appear light-blue instead of green. This should help some of our players with colorblindness more easily differentiate between valid and invalid placement when they’re building their latest and greatest C.A.M.P. creations.
Next, we’ve been reading lots of the feedback you’ve been posting about the frequency of upper-tier Daily Ops rewards. We want to make sure that your efforts are always rewarded when you complete a Daily Op fast enough to hit Elder Tier, and so we’re making a change to do just that. You will still only be able to achieve Elder Tier once per day, but you will now receive loot from the rare rewards pool every time you do.
If you play Fallout 76 on PC through Bethesda.net, there are still a few days left to get some early hands-on time with these improvements in the Public Test Server (PTS). We’re planning to keep the PTS running until the morning of January 25, so be sure to log in, do some playtesting, and then let us know what you think by posting in the PTS forum.
DOUBLE XP AND CAPS-O’-PLENTY EVENTS LIVE NOW!
We’re amping up the fun this weekend with a pair of in-game events that will help you level-up more quickly and score some extra Caps from Vendors along the way! Over the next few days, you will be able to earn twice as many experience points during your adventures with Double XP in all game modes.
At the same time, we’re running a “Caps-o’-Plenty” event, which doubles the number of Caps available at Vendors throughout Appalachia from 1,400 to 2,800 each day. Vendor Caps reset every 20 hours in real-time, so be sure to haul any excess gear and junk you find to the nearest Vendor every day this weekend to top off your collection of Caps. Check out the event times below so that you can rake in as much XP and as many Caps as possible.
COMBO EVENT DETAILS
- Events: Double XP in all game modes, plus double the usual daily Caps from Vendors.
- Start: 12:00 p.m. ET on January 21
- End: 12:00 p.m. ET on January 25
- Bethesda, we need weekly limits, not daily ones
- Settlements and Vendors: Going Cheap vs. Optimized? (And, did I bite off more than I can chew)
- Are you still playing 76? How are your vendor sales compared to pre-update?
