Many folks are still ploughing their way through Fallout 4 and it's gotten a bit smoother and a little harder as well.
The latest patch for the game has just been released and it includes a large number of optimisations which improve frame rates and tighten up the flabby edges of Bethesda's biggest RPG to date. We're also hearing that this update has removed a glitch which allowed users to gain infinite bottlecaps (that's cash in the Wasteland) by selling ammo to a vendor and then fleecing them of all their money. It's been in effect since release, so a month was probably enough time to let players have that kind of fun.
You'll have to play honestly from now on - until someone else finds an exploit - but at least it will be a smoother ride. Here are the full patch notes from Bethesda.
