Fallout 76 has a new PTS update, and an Xbox Game Pass perk

Fallout 76 PTS update and Game Pass free content

‘Night of the Moth’

For roughly another month to go, Bethesda is allowing people to try the new Fallout PTS update for 76. Titled “Night of the Moth,” the update is scheduled to go live sometime in December, and will add several quality-of-life features as well as the Mothman Equinox event.

The Mothman Equinox is based off the legend of the same name, and tasks players with various quests “every hour at the top of the hour.” For a lot of people, seasonal events are a dalliance. The real meat is the foundation that the update further lays down for the game, including area looting and the ability to share legendary loot: plus, the game can highlight enemies you haven’t looted yet. It’s something people have wanted for quite some time, given how loot is such a big part of this game’s longevity.

Oh, and the Fallout PTS update isn’t the only thing going on in Fallout 76. Microsoft is currently running an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate “survival bundle,” which doles out knickknacks that have a direct impact on gameplay. Remember when those weren’t going to be microtransactions, or tied to a subscription? Yikes, those were the days.

You can find the contents of the Fallout 76 survival bundle below, and you can redeem it here, or on your console, with Game Pass:

  • Lunchboxes (x6)
  • Repair Kits (x6)
  • Bubblegum (x6)
  • Carry Weight Booster (x6)
  • Scrap Kits (x6)
  • Red Steel Crusader Pistol Paint
  • Brotherhood of Steel Wallpaper
  • Mr. Fuzzy Backpack
