Fallout 4 is just over a week on the shelves and in our nuclear blast-hit homes, but Bethesda are already planning their first patch update. The update will come to PC first in beta form, then see a general release on that platform, followed by the console updates.
While it hasn’t been confirmed what this update will include, there are a number of reported issues discovered and passed on by the player-base. Understandably, millions of players would find a bug or a glitch that only a few hundred testers might have missed. You can’t argue though, that Fallout 4 is more solid than previous open world titles by Bethesda.
“It’s true that the freedom our games offer you can lead to unintentional consequences that are sometimes bad, when the game combines too many unexpected elements at once,” Bethesda said in a new blog post. “Given the scale and complexity of the systems at work, especially when allowing you to build your own settlements, we’re happy that Fallout 4 is our most robust and solid release ever, and we’d like to thank our amazing QA staff who worked as hard as anyone to break the game so we could fix it during development.
“But a hundred testers will never replicate the many millions playing the game now, and we’re hard at work addressing the top issues.”
Some players have found issues that are game-breaking, or that kick them back out to their PlayStation or PC home screens or desktops. Others have just found funny glitches like playing the game without your head, or floating high up into the sky while holding an object.
Gameranx have a little video here of discovered glitches, although it contains some characters you may not have encountered yet, so choose to watch this at your own discretion.
As soon as we know for certain what the patch notes are, we shall let you guys know. Until then, continue adventuring if you can, and don’t forget to eat and sleep! Or go to work!
