  • Bethesda Comments on Fallout 76 Player Feedback - FOV Slider, Ultra-Wide Support, Push-to-Talk and More

    Following up on the Fallout 76 beta, Bethesda took to Reddit to issue a few statements about what is and is not coming as a result of player feedback. Notably, a number of these comments are focused on the PC version of the game including some unfortunate remarks about the potential for an FOV slider, but everyone interested in the game should take a look.

    Ultra-Wide Support: We will support 21:9 post launch. Once available, or shortly before, we’ll be sure to post our patch notes that let you know when to expect it.

    Larger Stash Size: We’ve seen this one come up a lot and understand the frustration. While the Stash size at 400 weight limit can get easier to deal with over time, we do plan on increasing it in the future.

    Push-to-Talk: While we aim to create a consistent experience no matter what platform you’re on, we understand that some of you on PC would like the option for Push-to-Talk. Our goal with voice chat being on by default is to highlight that the world is alive with real people, other players like you. We like to start with encouraging player interaction and will look into adding this in the future.

    FOV Slider: We haven’t supported FOV sliders in our previous games as it is known to break a lot of animations and causes a lot of clipping to occur onscreen. You do have the option to zoom out in third person on PC by holding View and moving the mousewheel, but we won’t be able to have it for first person view.

    Exploits of Various Types: Many exploits we’ve seen reported have been known and will be addressed in a future update.
    Issues with social menu and inviting friends/making teams/etc.: Those who were experiencing issues with the social components will find that many of these issues have been fixed. We will continue to fix issues as they arise as fast as we’re able to, so keep letting us know when you run into them.

    Hunger not being sated: Some were saying their “Hunger bar” wouldn’t replenish no matter how much they ate or how cleared of diseases they were. This issue has been addressed and will be in a future update so no more hungry dwellers.

    Loud Gunshot/Noises: The issue of players hearing sudden random gunshot/loud sounds around Appalachia will be addressed in a future update near launch.

    To quickly summarize: There will be no FOV slider, ultra-wide support is coming later, Bethesda is "looking" to maybe add push-to-talk in the future, exploits will be addressed when possible, sounds and hunger will be addressed nearer to launch.

    It is unfortunate to hear that there won't be an FOV slider. It's also unfortunate to hear that push-to-talk for voice chat isn't already a part of the game. Most of us are probably well acquainted already with how terrible the "always on mic" multiplayer experience is.

    Quick TGN E3 2018 Wrap Up

    E3 was last week and I do believe the dust has finally settled. I decided, for my own sanity really, to try to take things a bit slower this year with getting news up from the event. This was...
