We recently announced that we would need to delay the end of Fallout 76 Season 5 and the start of Season 6 due to an issue affecting purchased rank-ups. However, after further investigation, we have found that we can safely move forward with starting Season 6 today, September 8, as scheduled.
We’ve been delving deep into the bug mentioned above, and have since found that it will not prevent any players from receiving the rewards they earned through rank-ups. While everyone will have their correct rewards from Season 5, we do still need to address the underlying issue that affects purchasing rank-ups with Atoms. As a result, we are going to disable rank-up purchases during the start of Season 6 until we can resolve the bug and release a hotfix. We will let you know as soon as we plan to re-enable rank purchases. In the meantime, all players can still rank up and claim Season 6 rewards normally by completing in-game Challenges to earn S.C.O.R.E.
We’d also like to express our sincere apologies to all of you in the community for any confusion or inconvenience our initial announcement may have caused while we believed we would have to delay Season 6. To help make it right, we’re going to kick off Double XP and Double S.C.O.R.E. Daily Challenge events this weekend starting as soon as today’s patch is live, until 12:00 p.m. ET (16:00 UTC) on Monday, September 13.
We hope that you’re excited to jump into the new Season with us as soon as the Fallout Worlds Update is live today.External link →
