Fallout 76 Reveals First Seasonal Event, Features Creepy Masks And Effigies
The next overhaul of content hurling itself at the Fallout 76 community arrives soon with Patch 7 and the Wild Appalachia launching this week, and that means the game’s first seasonal event is here! For a limited time, players get to experience a repeatable event that encourages everyone to collect as many spooky masks as possible. Dubbed the Fasnacht Parade, players are tasked with the duty of setting up festive decor, exterminating pests, and a plethora of other activities.
Speak with the Master of Cermonies in Helvetia, and take on the variety of tasks to make this Fasnacht Parade the best the town has ever seen! Completing tasks will reward you with plenty of loot. Defend parade marchers as they spread the cheer from party crashers and the more that survive, the better the rewards will be. So defend, attack, and protect them with your life.
During Fallout 76 ‘s Fasnacht Parade, haggle with other Dwellers for rare masks as well. The more, the merrier! The Fasnacht Parade begins March 19th and ends on March 26th. For more details on Fasnacht Parade, check out Bethesda’s blog post here. In addition to the energy balance and heavy weapon changes heading to Fallout 76 with Patch 7, there’s a few hefty addition that the studio will be hauling in. Check it out:
C.A.M.P. and Workshop Budget Adjustments
In Patch 7, we’re planning to make adjustments to the C.A.M.P. and Workshop budget system that should allow you to build even bigger and fancier Wasteland abodes.
- The amount of budget space that some buildable objects consume, such as Turrets and Lights, has been reduced, but they now also have a maximum amount that can be placed in your C.A.M.P. or Workshop. The build menu recipes for these objects will show you how many are already present in your C.A.M.P., including the ones you have stored, and the total amount of each you can place.
- There are several important aspects of C.A.M.P. and Workshop budgets we must keep in mind when making adjustments, including how objects are used by players, overall structure balance, and even game performance. While the above changes aren’t a direct increase to budget size, they should give you more overall budget space to build lots of cool stuff, while also allowing us the flexibility to further refine and improve balance and performance.
C.A.M.P. Placement Adjustments
Occasionally, when we bring new content to the game, it may need to be placed somewhere that was previously usable as a C.A.M.P. location. We can’t have C.A.M.P.s and quests occupying the same space and while we do our best to limit these cases, sometimes it’s unavoidable.
- Starting with Patch 7, and in future updates, we plan to add a few new “no-build zones” to the game world that will prevent players from constructing C.A.M.P.s in those areas.
- However, it’s possible some players may have already built in these locations before they became no-build zones. When this happens, affected players will be notified upon joining a world that their C.A.M.P.s can no longer be placed, and they will be given a free C.A.M.P. placement as a result. We don’t expect this will impact most players, but we hope this free move will help you find a new home for your home.
With Patch 7, we want to make challenges easier to keep an eye on as you make progress toward completing them, so you always know when that next reward will be on its way into your pocket.
- We’re adding a new challenge tracking interface to the Map, which you can use to quickly access the challenges menu whenever you’d like.
- As you scroll through your available challenges, you can now select and add them to the tracker, which will update as you make progress toward completing each one.
- Additionally, you will also receive a notification in-game whenever you make progress toward one of the challenges you’ve added to the tracker.
