In the weekly update blog post, Fallout 76 developers are giving players a sneak peek at UI improvements coming with Wastelanders update as well Wastelanders PTS, Vault 94 news and more.
Wastelanders will feature more than new content and bug fixes. Players can also look forward to a variety of quality-of-life improvements such as the new quest UI. Quests have received some visual updates: main quests now display square quest markers on the map, while the other types of quests are marked with the diamond shape.
When you click one of your quests on the map, it will display a pop-up that shows the quest’s name, description, journal entry, and even your current objective. At the bottom of the pop-up, there are three new options: “Toggle Active,” “Make Only this Active,” and “Show in Pip-Boy.” Here’s what each one does:
- Toggle Active: Select this to change an inactive quest to active, or vice versa.
- Make Only this Active: Selecting this will mark all your quests inactive except for the one you’ve selected.
- Show in Pip-Boy: This closes the map and opens the currently selected quest in your Pip-Boy’s Data tab.
Vault 94 is going to be sealed again once the Wastelanders update goes live. The developers have been collecting players’ feedback and decided that “Vault 94 and its Missions are not delivering the quality of experience that we had hoped to provide.”
While that update is still a little ways off, we wanted to give you early notice so that you still have plenty of time to complete some more Vault Missions if you so choose before we seal up Vault 94 indefinitely. When the Vault is disabled, we are planning to make all of its rewards, including the exclusive Power Armor sets and Vault Steel, achievable through other means. We don’t have information to share on how and where you will be able to earn those rewards right now. Be sure to keep an eye out for those details when Wastelanders arrives.
Opt-ins for the Wastelanders PTS have now been closed. If you have decided to participate, check the e-mail you used starting on January 17th, you might be one of the few hundred lucky users who will get to test the new update.
