Fallout 4 1.5.4 Update: What’s New

Bethesda’s rolling out a brand new Fallout 4 1.5.4 update and it brings a number of important changes to the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

We’re only six months into the year and we’ve already seen Bethesda change Fallout 4 in a number of ways.

Bethesda recently pushed out its first three DLC add-ons. Automatron is now available across all three platforms. The Wasteland Workshop, the second Fallout 4 DLC, arrived for consoles and Windows PC in mid-April. The big boy, Far Harbor, is now available and the developer recently delivered its fourth Fallout 4 DLC, Contraptions Workshop.

The developer’s also planning some more free Fallout 4 updates.


Bethesda recently rolled out a 1.5.3 patch to the Xbox One/PS4/PC and last week it started rolling out a brand new Fallout 4 update. The update is dubbed 1.5.4 and it’s currently available for the Xbox One and Windows PC.

The developer’s new patch is focused on Fallout 4 mods and it comes with some key fixes and tweaks for the platform just recently landed for the Xbox One and will land for PlayStation 4 in the near future, after a short delay.

This roundup takes a look at the most important things to know about the Fallout 4 1.5.4 update for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Let’s start with the basics.

Fallout 4 1.5.4 Update Release & Size

The Fallout 4 1.5.4 update is out now for PC and Xbox One users ahead of a release for the PlayStation 4. The release comes after the update went through a very short beta on Steam earlier in June. 

The Fallout 4 1.5.4 release date for the PlayStation 4 is unknown and the company says that it "hopes to have an update for PS4 soon." Nothing specific so PS4 owners will want to keep a look out later this week as we head into the 4th of July weekend.

Look for the developer to keep the precise release date close to its chest as we move through the weekend. Bethesda will confirm the roll out via its social media accounts when it's ready to deploy the new software to the PS4.

The Xbox One 1.5.4 update is large, checking in at a little over 500MB. It took us all of a few minutes to download on our console. We expect the PS4 1.5.4 update to be similar in size though exact amount will likely vary from region to region. 

If you're running out of space on your hard drive, or if you're using a slow connection, now would be a good time to plug in that ethernet cable and free up some space for the latest Fallout 4 patch.
