If it couldn't get worse for the Fallout 76 beta, developer Bethesda has limited the PC version of the game to just 63FPS and the field of view to 90 degrees.

In a note thanking players for participating in the beta, Bethesda responded to some of the common concerns surrounding Fallout 76.

Ultra-wide support is also expected post-launch, though it's unlikely that a FOV slider will be added. Among these are a larger stash and the addressing of certain exploits.

One of the biggest complaints from the PC crowd was the "always on" chat without an option for "push-to-talk". Our goal with voice chat being on by default is to highlight that the world is alive with real people, other players like you. There's no Push-to-Talk in a misguided attempt to encourage "player interaction", but the developers "will look into adding this in the future". Bethesda acknowledges that having a slider often interferes with the games' animations and hasn't supported them in any of its previous titles. And while players do have the option to zoom out in third person on PC by holding View and moving the mousewheel, they won't be able to have this feature for the first person viewpoint. Known exploits will be dealt with in a future update, though we're not sure if that's at launch or after.

Issues with social menu and inviting friends/making teams/etc.: Those who were experiencing issues with the social components will find that many of these issues have been fixed. "The stories you've been sharing, the feedback you've provided, and the issues you've made us aware of have been appreciated along this journey".

Hunger not being sated: Some were saying their "Hunger bar" wouldn't replenish no matter how much they ate or how cleared of diseases they were. Some of the tweaks are more technical in nature, while others address unintended bugs that could severely hamper the game experience. Remember that when the framerate issue was first discovered, Bethesda said "a fix won't be out until the game launches".
