Fallout 4 patch 1.3 is in beta ahead of a public release and today we want to highlight five things that have us excited about its eventual arrival for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
Last year, Bethesda announced that it would be rolling out regular, and free, Fallout 4 updates. These updates will focus on squashing many of the Fallout 4 problems that exist on Xbox One, PS4 and PC but some (or all, we’re not sure) will bring new features to the table.
Bethesda’s first big Fallout 4 update arrived in December, just weeks after the game’s release date. As promised, the 1.2 patch came with more than just a collection of bug fixes. It also brought some new features to PC users.
The update was a solid start but it left many Fallout 4 gamers wanting more. More features and more bug fixes for Fallout 4 problems.
Earlier this year, the developer confirmed a brand new Fallout 4 patch for PC. Fallout 4’s 1.3 update is currently in beta for PC users and anyone with a Steam account can download and install the early version right now.
The Fallout 4 patch 1.3 is much larger than the update that came before it and it’s one that I’ve been looking forward to since its release into beta earlier this month.
While we wait for the Fallout 4 patch to arrive for everyone, I want to highlight a few of the components I’m most excited about. There’s a lot to like about the 1.3 patch but there are a few things that stand out to me.
Here’s what I’m most excited about.
Status Menu for Settlers
The Fallout 4 1.3 patch is bringing some new features to gamers including new icons for settlers that inhabit your settlements.
If you have large settlements or sometimes have problems tracking down who is doing what, the new menu will help. You can get a feel for the icons and the menu in the screenshot here and in the screenshots located right here.
It's going to help with organization, particularly in your biggest settlements where it can be difficult to determine who is doing what.
It's a small addition but it's an exciting one for those of us that are heavily invested in not only creating settlements but properly managing them as well.
I'm hoping this one makes it from the beta to the public release.
