Bethesda have delayed the release of the Fallout 76 Wastelanders update, which was originally supposed to launch later this year.
One update that will be making its way to the game this year is the introduction of private servers, which are scheduled to go live sometime next week.
As the name suggests, this “number one community-requested feature” will allow players (for a price) to host their own private worlds with friends, with the ability to “mod” said worlds being added at a later date.
Of course, while the ability to host your own game is always a good option to have, we’ve found that most random players we’ve bumped into during our travels across post-apocalyptic Virginia have been eager to help, rather than hinder.
Bethesda end the blog with the news that more fixes and quality of life improvements are on the way, while the studio is also said to be working on bringing new events, a legendary player system, a public server and perk loadouts to the game.

Square Enix have announced that Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will hit digital and physical stores in November.
Alongside the base game, the Definitive Edition contains all previously released DLC, including challenge tombs, missions, weapons, outfits and Croft Edition bonuses, plus a new Croft Fitness outfit and "additional gameplay adjustments."
Anyone who owns the season pass will be automatically upgraded to the Definitive Edition upon launch, though you'll need to download the new Croft Fitness outfit manually. Those with the standard edition can purchase the Definitive Edition Extra Content bundle, which replaces the season pass.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition releases 5 November on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and will be available on Google Stadia when the platform launches.

Kluge Interactive are bringing their popular rhythm game Synth Riders to Oculus Quest following its successful launch on other VR platforms, notably Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality.
“It's truly magical when the love for a game brings thousands of people together to form a community, then causes them to ask: ‘This is great, how can we contribute ourselves to make the game even better?’” Said Brian Elliott Tate, Community Manager at Kluge Interactive.
“The Synth Riders community has spent countless hours pouring their hearts out in so many creative ways, and we can't wait to see where it goes next.”
You can read more about the development process and inspirations behind Synth Riders in our interview with developer Abraham Aguero.
Here’s a list of everything included with the Quest version of the game:
Synth Riders will be available on the Oculus Quest Store from 31 October with an RRP of $16.99. The game will also be launching fully that same day on Steam VR, the Oculus Rift Store and Viveport with an RRP of $19.99.

From today until Monday, NetherRealm Studios are inviting Xbox One and PS4 owners to try out Mortal Kombat 11 for free.
Early Access for The Terminator is now available with the Kombat Pack, or you can jump into the Towers of Time during the free weekend to play as Arnie (along with fellow DLC fighters, Nightwolf and Shang Tsung).
Sam called out the "gorgeously gruesome audiovisuals" and "gratifyingly balanced kombat systems" in our review back in April, giving Mortal Kombat 11 a very respectable 8/10.
Will you be trying out MK11 this weekend? Let us know below or over in the forums.
Nimble (formerly known as Holospark), have pushed back the release date for the Nintendo Switch version of Earthfall.
Earthfall: Alien Horde features 11 campaign chapters and 5 invasion maps in which players must face off against a variety of extra-terrestrial foes, utilising barricades and 3D printed weapons during periodic choke points in order to survive.
James gave the game a solid 7/10 when he reviewed the Xbox One version last year, noting that while the AI bots might not be the greatest team players, the game is still “ruddy good fun, if a tad disposable.”
Earthfall: Alien Horde is out 29 October on Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have revealed Pokémon Shield’s latest exclusive ‘mon, a Galar region Ponyta.
“Galarian Ponyta have been found in a certain forest of the Galar region since ancient times. It is said that they were exposed to the overflowing life energy of the forest over many generations, and therefore their appearance became unique in this region,” reads the press release.
“Galarian Ponyta can absorb the life energy of the surrounding atmosphere and store it in its mane. Its mane will become more colorful, and even emit a sparkling glow, if there is an abundance of energy around.”
News that Galar Ponyta will be joining the Shield roster as an exclusive Pokémon is the latest big reveal for the upcoming pair of games after Nintendo unveiled Sirfetch’d as a Sword exclusive last month.
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are out 15 November on Switch.
What do you think of Ponyta’s new look? Let us know below or in the forums.
