But the biggest feature coming to Fallout 76 for Fallout 1st subscribers are Private Worlds, which will let players invite up to seven friends (including non Fallout 1st subscribers), or play solo, in your own instance of the West Virginia-set open world.

Welcome to Mischief Night. Bethesda Softworks

From October 29 to November 5 Fallout 76 will be hosting its seasonal event at the in-game Whitespring Resort. To participate, visit the Springhouse Gazebo and talk to the JES-2R Eyebot. New Mischief Night sessions start every hour on the hour. During Mischief Night you can blow up cars, light bonfires, go trick-or-treating and fight off the Whitespring Elite Security Force. Of course, Mischief Night costumes are encouraged. Participants will be reward with XP and loot, including jack-o-lanterns.

In addition to the Mischief Night event, the update adds six limited-time Halloween cosmetics, reward to players for beating Nuclear Winter Challenges any time from October 29 to November 12. The rewards include a bat weapon, armor paints and a Glowing Skeleton outfit. Plus, Vault 51 has been redecorated for Halloween.

Other substantial fixes packaged with Update 14 to Fallout 76 include color-coded item rarity, making it easy to evaluate Nuclear Winter items as you scavenge (rarity progression: white, green, blue, purple, and orange). The new patch also adds Legendary Scorchbeasts — the giant mutated bats stalking the Appalachians of 76.
