One of the changes at the top of the mind for nearly every Fallout 76 player is an increase to stash size. Your personal stash is the one safe place in Fallout 76. Putting items in there means they (theoretically) won’t disappear. That’s an important designation in a game where getting things off your person plays such a recurring role.

But, there’s a weight restriction of 400 which isn’t nearly enough for the coffers of most Wasteland Wanderers. Fallout 76 asks that you horde absolutely everything you can, and then doesn’t give you ample space to store it. Next week’s update will finally address that problem — or at least begin to.

Bethesda has outlined the next few patches for Fallout 76. The first comes on December 4 and its major function is increasing stash space from 400 to 600. Also, players hit with ice damage will have reduced movement speed for 30 seconds instead of 2 hours. That seems like a big change!

Here are all the changes in the December 4 update, straight from Bethesda’s mouth:

  • Stash Limit Increased: We know many of you have been asking for an adjustment to the Stash storage limit, and we’re happy to share that we’re increasing it from 400 to 600. While this is somewhat conservative, we plan to increase the storage cap further once we verify that this change will not negatively impact the stability of the game.
  • Boss Loot: Players should correctly receive two to three items after taking down a boss, depending on the creature’s difficulty and level.
  • Cryolator Effects: Players hit with the Cryolator are now Chilled, Frosted, or Frozen depending on how many times they are hit. The duration of movement speed reductions applied by these effects have also been decreased from 2 hours to 30 seconds.
  • Respawning When over-encumbered: We’ve resolved an issue affecting players who die while over-encumbered that only allowed them to respawn at Vault 76. Now, over-encumbered players will be able to respawn at the nearest discovered map marker.
  • Stuck in Power Armor: We’ve addressed an issue in this patch that could cause players to become stuck inside Power Armor. We’re also aware that there are some additional cases where this can occur, and we are actively investigating them.

As for the patch after that, PC players finally get a few features they’ve been yearning. Push-to-talk, 21:9 resolution support, and field of view settings are all on deck. Also, one of the more interesting later-game changes concerns reallocating skill points. Every level after 50, players will have the option of picking a new perk or moving a skill point to a different SPECIAL category. It’s a slow-burning approach to respeccing your character.

Here’s everything slated for the December 11 patch:

  • PC Additions: A Push-to-Talk setting for Voice Chat, 21:9 resolution support, and a Field of View setting are all being implemented on PC with this update.
  • SPECIAL Respec: After level 50, you’ll be able to choose between a new Perk Card, or moving a SPECIAL point you had previously allocated.
  • C.A.M.P. Placement on Login: Your C.A.M.P. will no longer be automatically blueprinted and stored if someone is occupying your location when you log into a server. Instead, you’ll receive a notification that your space is occupied. If you decide to find a new home for your C.A.M.P. on that server, it will be free to do so. However, if you don’t attempt to place down your C.A.M.P., you will be able to switch to a new server where that spot is vacant and your C.A.M.P. will be fully assembled and waiting for you.
  • Bulldozer: This is a new C.A.M.P. feature that will allow you to remove small trees, rocks, and other obstructions so it’s easier to create and place your C.A.M.P. when and where you want it. You can also use the Bulldozer to clear these items from the surrounding area to make your C.A.M.P. feel more like home!

Finally, Bethesda also acknowledges the ridiculous size of the last update on consoles and says it’s working to reduce patch sizes. Hopefully that means no more behemoth downloads that have a death claw on our hard drives.
