In a blog post late last week, Bethesda is once again asking players for their feedback to help make sure Steel Reign, the latest major content update to come to Fallout 76 releases in the best state it can.
The Public Test Server, or PTS, opened on May 14th, and since then players have been able to explore and test the next major update, Steel Reign, which is hitting Appalachia in July. The testing includes checking out the latest questline, interacting with the new vendor, Minerva, as well as testing the legendary changes. While testing has been ongoing and players have been providing a lot of feedback to the team, they are still in need of more data ahead of the July launch.
"While it is still early in this phase of playtesting, we are looking to make some improvements in future PTS updates. For example, we’re looking into adjusting some Legendary Core drop rates and permanently increasing the Legendary Scrip limit, to help players more easily scoop up components they need to make legendary items. So, please keep sending your feedback to us on Legendary Crafting, as well as all of the other improvements, content, and features that are headed your way with the Steel Reign Update in July."
As such, Fallout 76's dev team is incentivizing players to keep the feedback coming by offering testers an in-game reward for doing so. Players who complete the following will be rewarded with their own Pennant back at their C.A.M.P. in the live version of F76:
- Complete the Steel Reign quest “A Knight’s Penance”
- Use the Legendary Crafting system five times
- Buy one item of your choice from Minerva
To make it easier, Bethesda will be supplying every account with premade characters on their PTS account. These characters, named "Quests" will be ready to go starting at the new content.Don't have the characters on the PTS? Don't worry, as every Friday Bethesda will be adding these characters to accounts that don't have them yet, so long as the account has logged in before that Thursday.
