The next major Fallout 76 update ‘Test Your Metal’ is coming imminently to PTS

Three new public events are coming

It looks like the Fallout 76 Test Your Metal Update is coming sooner than we thought, as well It is available on the PTS again “in the coming days” for some finishing touches.

Slated for the “summer,” one of the major aspects of Test Your Metal is the addition of three new public events, which should add some variety to the overworld. You’ll battle Rust Eagle robots in the Metal Dome location in a gladiatorial setup, clean up Super Mutants at the Foundation, and partake in the Moonshine Jamboree at the Brother’s Cabin on Sunday.

If you’re curious, here’s a story refresher on the Rust Eagle event, which seems to be one of the biggest:

“Rust Eagle raiders have been busy constructing an army of deadly robots, thrown together using parts they’ve snatched from around the Wasteland. It wasn’t long before the Brotherhood of Steel caught wind of this venture, and now they want to evaluate what sort of threat these machines might pose to Appalachia. “

The corpse-highlighting quality-of-life mechanic is also being “polished up,” and the typical bug fixes that accompany big updates are part of Test Your Metal too. As a refresher, corpse highlighting “will cause dead enemies to glow, so that you can spot them more quickly, and easily claim your hard-earned loot.”

As a reminder, the PTS is moving off of the Bethesda Launcher completely and will now only be accessible on Steam. This is part of a larger shift for the Bethesda Launcher as a whole, which is focusing on everything in favor of sunset on Steam at the moment. That shift will begin in early April, where data can be moved over. Then in May, the Bethesda Launcher will be completely removed, and the migration will be complete.
