As many gamers who have taken part in Fallout 76's beta period have already attested, the trial run for Bethesda Game Studios' forthcoming online-only multiplayer title has encountered its fair share of technical problems, which has led to the company promising fans it has plans to fix "several issues". However, it appears as if all of the bugs currently in the game won't be fixed before its launch next week.
According to a recent post from Bethesda on Fallout 76's official subreddit, the publisher and developer shared a list of known issues from fans' feedback that it intends to rectify down the line, with certain unnamed bugs and "exploits of various types" to be "addressed at a future date". That said, though, some issues have apparently been taken care of already, such as hangups regarding the game's social components and problems where the "Hunger" bar wouldn’t replenish no matter how much a player ate.
This isn't the first instance of Bethesda admitting to the fact that Fallout 76 will suffer from bugs and glitches at launch, as the studio posted a note on Twitter a couple of weeks back telling fans that due to the scale of the game, it is bound to have bugs upon release. With this being the case, Bethesda has urged players to identify any issues if they are encountered and report them to the company as soon as possible.
All things considered, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Fallout 76 will fall prey to bugs and glitches when it comes out, especially when one takes into account the release history of previous Bethesda games. Nevertheless, despite the fact that titles such as The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim were released broken at launch, most gamers still dove into them with delight, with the in-game errors often becoming seen as an endearing, albeit annoying feature. So, with this being the case, it's possible that fans could end up viewing Fallout 76 in the same light at launch.
Fallout 76 releases on November 14, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
