This outage is to apply the changes from the Fallout 76 1.0.3 patch. This patch adds new features like the Bulldozer, making it easier to set up a C.A.M.P. wherever you'd like. The patch also fixes plenty of bugs and other issues. Be sure to check out the full patch notes for the 1.0.3 update here.


Bethesda has already announced loose plans for another update after this one, which is scheduled for next week. No concrete plans are in place for the next patch, but Bethesda says there are hopes to squash out a few more bugs and smooth out a few more wrinkles before the end of the year.

Newsweek will update this story when the servers have come back online, or more information is known.
