In a new Lying Lowe quest-line that begins once you find one of the “Sheepsquatch Ate My Brother” posters around Lewisburg or at various Train Stations, which begins the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Calvin van Lowe. This arrives as part of Patch 8, and the continued roll-out of new content as part of the Wild Appalachia season.
And this new update finally brings item renaming to Fallout 76, which will no doubt help when sorting through various bits of Power Armor and Weapons.
This update (which is available now) is also introducing a new dungeon that is set to go live on April 16 called The Burrows that will take players beneath Harper’s Ferry as they follow in the footsteps of the Brotherhood of Steel. As per the full patch notes
, The Burrows has been designed as a group experience - so solo adventurers will definitely find it challenging going in alone.
Patch 8 is quite extensive in terms of balancing and overall changes and tweaks and improvements, with the following being the highlights.
Lying Lowe Questline: Separate fact from fiction as you investigate the mysterious disappearance of Calvin van Lowe.
Design and Balance Adjustments: Vendors, Turrets, Glowing Mass, V.A.T.S. and more have received design and balance updates.
Item Renaming: Add a personal touch to your Apparel, Armor, Power Armor, and Weapons by giving them custom names.
News Screen: A splash screen will now automatically appear upon logging into Fallout 76 to notify you of the latest game news and announcements.
The Burrows (Coming April 16): Explore The Burrows, a new subterranean dungeon that offers a challenging experience for even the toughest of Wasteland adventurers.
No word in this update about the upcoming Repair Kits, which caused controversy recently due to the revelation that they'll also be purchasable with real-world money
. The community feedback regarding non-cosmetic Atomic Shop purchases has not been kind, so we'll wait and see how that one pans out. Repair Kits were talked about as a post-Patch 8 addition.
