Bethesda launches the most recent update for Fallout 4 with a patch for the Xbox One version of the post-apocalyptic RPG that officially goes live today.
After having just released its Fallout 4 patch for the PS4 yesterday, Bethesda has now finished its first update for the game on Xbox One, with the 1.2 upgrade having been announced by Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb. Downloading and installing the patch should be the initial prompt Fallout 4 players see the next time fans boot up the action-RPG on their Xbox Ones should they not have done so already.
Of course, in preparation for the PS4 and Xbox One getting their official updates for Fallout 4, Bethesda made the game’s PC beta patch a priority in order to test out the changes before adding them to consoles. Bearing that in mind, every platform should now be up to speed as far as software ameliorations go, with PCs, PS4s, and Xbox Ones each having the same memory and stability improvements, bug and glitch fixes, as well as repairs to certain quests.
When it comes to bugs and glitches, Bethesda is notorious for releasing games riddled with graphical errors, but they have often been harmless, typically yielding hilarious results. However, a game breaking bug was discovered almost immediately after Fallout 4 went live that affected fans on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but, thankfully, it has been rectified with the most recent patch.
With Bethesda having just completed the first round of updates for Fallout 4, fans should expect more content patches in the future. For instance, when the game’s official Creation Kit mod tools releases in early 2016, there will likely be a pretty sizable download package waiting for gamers. Not to mention, once developers finally smooth out all of the materials that the base game has to offer, as the Season Pass and accompanying DLC will need to have updates as well.
Updates aside, it’s obvious that gamers have been knee deep in Fallout 4 since its release. In fact, the dedication to Bethesda’s action-RPG is so fervent that there have been many fans devoting their spare moments to enhancing and altering the game with the use of mods, such as the graphics mod that makes for a better Boston landscape.
The amount of time devoted to exploring Fallout 4 makes sense, as its large, detailed map has given players plenty of ground to cover in their expeditions throughout the game’s massive world. Hopefully, though, the most recent improvements put forth in Bethesda’s latest patches have quelled most, if not all, of the Wasteland’s most fearsome foes — bugs and glitches.
Fallout 4 is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
