With Bethesda Game Days 2020 happening in Boston next week, Fallout 76 wants those who won’t be able to take part to have some fun as well. Starting February 27 until March 2, there is a Double XP Event in Fallout 76. Whether you’re playing Adventure Mode, Nuclear Winter, or even a Private World, you can level up twice as fast.

New Patch

It’s not just about a new event, as next week also marks the release of the game’s latest patch. Players can expect Patch 17.5 to arrive on February 25. Unlike the previous update, this one is going to be a lot slimmer. The update mostly focuses on behind-the-scenes prep work for Wastelanders along with some stability and bug fixes.

Bethesda Game Days

Bethesda Game Days is going back to Boston next week from February 28 to February 29. There’s going to be a lot of activities that the Fallout 76 community are going to enjoy.

Fallout 76 is an online action role-playing game that is part of the Fallout series. This is the first multiplayer game from Bethesda and lets players explore an open world that has been torn apart by nuclear war. The game was launched to mixed reviews. Much of the criticism was focused on the many technical issues, the overall design, lack of gameplay purpose, and even initial absence of human non-playable characters.
