Fallout 76 is set to receive a public test server according to a news post on Bethesda’s official site, along with perk loadouts, and multi-factor authentication.

]Of course, their Wastelanders update is a priority at this time,

“It probably is no surprise that Wastelanders is a big focus of ours. We are dedicated to making this new giant update as best as it can be. So, what does that mean for some of the other requests we’ve seen and feedback we’ve been reading from you? Wastelanders may be a big focus, but it’s not the only focus. There are several things we want to do and are working on, but it takes time and, in some cases, a lot of work.”

However, a test server has been long requested and it looks like Bethesda is finally listening. Starting in 2020, a test server will be added:

“A Public Test Server (PTS) is currently in the works with the hope to get it up and running in 2020. Once we’ve figured out all (or most of) the kinks, we will be able to provide more details on our PTS and how you can participate.”

Additionally, perk loadouts are also planned for 2020.

“Perk Loadouts are also currently planned for early 2020. Like the PTS, this is still very much a work in progress and while we’re excited to get this system out to you it’s still a ways off before we can start sharing more details. Look to a future Inside the Vault when we get closer to their release.”

It also looks like account security is something Bethesda is finally starting to take seriously with multi-factor authentication,

“Account security is very important to us, and we know it’s critical to you, as well. The wonderful Bethesda.net team has been working hard to get MFA implemented for Bethesda.net. They are very close and are planning to have this enabled by the end of this year.”
