Fallout 76's big recent Worlds update has been out for a little while now, and the team has been observing just how things have gone while the dust is settling. They promised that Worlds would be an ongoing process, shaped by feedback, and in order to get things going, they've released a new video all about the Worlds update.

There's also word on what to expect in the two big planned updates in the remaining months of this year. The first planned update is for October and will bring the spooky season to Appalachia  with Halloween features and fun, along with a series of bug fixes. While there's no word yet on the details of the Halloween update, Fallout isn't short on the creepy and spooky, so this kind of fun update sounds like it could be promising, especially after there was no Halloween event or additional content for the holiday last year. It does matter that 2020 was a very difficult year for most of the world, so it makes the return of Halloween goodies a good sign with the momentum Fallout 76 has been having more recently. If this update is anything like the 2019 Mischief Night events, then there should be action and spooky loot and outfits to grab.

Bethesda says there will be more info coming soon on the October update, so we'll have to hang on a bit longer to find out what's coming for the game and community.

As for what to expect in December, there will be a content update and a promise to address various quality of life improvements requested by the community. The PTS opening for the December update is expected to be announced in the coming weeks. For more, check out the update post on the Fallout 76 site.
