For the first month of 2021, Bethesda is taking a look at quality-of-life improvements to make playing Fallout 76 a little smoother. On Jan. 7, the public test server is set to update with changes to inventory. A lot of Fallout 76 is about gathering stuff and using it to craft materials or CAMPs, so this could be a big positive change for day-to-day play.
On a post on the official Fallout site, Bethesda explains what the test server will contain.
We’re calling this an “Inventory Update,” because it’s going to introduce a variety of improvements for how you manage your stuff. As a brief overview, it will include a Stash increase to 1,200 pounds, add “Armor” and “Food/Drink” tabs to the Pip-Boy, display the total weights of any item stacks you have, and expand on Player Vending Machine previews on the Map. These are going to be very positive changes for the game, and we would love for you to join us in playtesting to help ensure they are solid and polished before release at the end of January
All players with a PC copy of Fallout 76 through Bethesda’s launcher can download the test server for free and try out the improvements. Players can post feedback on the PTS forum to share their thoughts on the expanded space, new tabs, and better vending machine UI.
