Fallout 76

Fallout 76 has released a new patch today, which introduces new Ally Customization and includes new and returning events, backpack skin improvements, cosmetic rewards, and automatic item naming, among other things.

The premiere addition to the game, Ally Customization, allows players to share their wardrobe with their allies and swap their outfits around. To do so, players will have to interact with their allies in their C.A.M.P., where a "customize" option will appear to change their allies' clothing. 

One thing to note that any bonuses that stem from the armor will not apply to the ally, as everything they wear is purely cosmetic. So no, you won't be able to make your Ally into a god because he's wearing your offshoot armor set. 

However, you can become a treasure hunter, with the limited-time Hunt for the Treasure Hunter events that are being introduced. Players will use their "keen tracking senses" to find the Treasure Hunter Mole Miners in order to collect their Mole Miner Pails, which contain the loot that they've been gathering. 

The rewards can vary to three different tiers: Dusty Mole Miner Pails (low), Mole Miner Pails (Medium), andq Ornate Mole Miner Pails (high). The higher quality the pail, the better chances for better loot, which includes things such as Outfits, Marine Armor Helmet Plans, Mounted Head Plans, and new Backpack Plans. 

Next week players will be able to once again take part in the Fasnacht Seasonal Event, where players will help bots gather needed ingredients for a feats, play musical instruments, and hang decorations. There's a timer, so if you want to see the parade you'll have to complete your tasks on time.
