Our plans for this hotfix have changed a bit. We are going to start by releasing it for PC versions of the game tomorrow, and then monitor some of the changes it contains before we release the hotfix for console versions of the game closer to the end of the week.
We will begin PC maintenance at 10:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday, August 18. With this hotfix, we’re going to enable the new public event “A Colossal Problem” and apply a few bug fixes. During downtime, PC players will be unable to log into or play Fallout 76, but keep an eye on this thread after maintenance begins, and we will let you know as soon as we’ve brought the game back online. Console players will not be affected by this, and will still be able to play normally during PC downtime.
Thank you very much!
