Fallout 4 is a huge game with incredible depth and rewarding quests - but let's be honest people it's also more than a little broken and home to some of the most counterintuitive design choices around. Bethesda's games have a history of being pretty buggy when they launch and the company has proudly announced that Fallout 4 is actually their least broken game ever, but that doesn't mean there aren't improvements to be made.
Well praise (your chosen deity) for patches.
The developers announced last week that they were working on the patches for Fallout 4, and that they would be tested first on PC on Steam before rolling out elsewhere. Now we've got an idea of what will be included in the first PC patch:
- Number pad keys can now be used for remapping
- Remapping Activate now works on Quick Container
- General memory and stability improvements
- Fixed issue where equipped weapons become locked after completing Reunions
- Fixed issue with When Freedom Calls where the quest would not complete
- During Confidence Man, fixed issue where player's health would continuously regenerate
- Fixed crash related to jumping into water and reloading saved games
- Fixed issue where Launcher would not save God Rays Quality setting properly
It's a small list but there are already some major issues being addressed - like missions which wouldn't complete and just a little crash which sometimes happens when you jump into water! We remember that one from Skyrim...
This is a beta patch and only available in Steam so it won't automatically download. Instead you'll have to right click on Fallout 4 in Steam, go to Settings
Let's hope the fixes don't create more problems...
