A public test server will arrive for Fallout 76 sometime next year, giving players a chance to try out upcoming features – and for developers to adjust them – before they’re pushed to the live game servers. Bethesda announced the plan in a blog post earlier this week.

The next big content drop for Fallout 76 is the Wastelanders update, which is due sometime this fall. But in the latest post, as Eurogamer reports, the Fallout 76 team says they’re working on some of the remaining PC-specific issues and quality of life improvements players have been asking for.

Chief among those is a public test server, which Bethesda says is currently in the works.

“Once we’ve figured out all (or most of) the kinks, we will be able to provide more details on our PTS and how you can participate,” the post reads.

Beyond confirmation that a PTS is on the way, and that Bethesda plans on opening it sometime in 2020, there’s not a lot of specifics to dig into on this particular front. But PTS realms in general are helpful when it comes to testing new features, and the presence of one in Fallout 76 could make the process of introducing new content to the game a bit faster and smoother. Bethesda director Todd Howard has said his biggest regret when it comes to 76 was that the studio didn’t run a longer beta period prior to launch.
