Bethesda’s rolled out a brand new Fallout 4 update to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC and this walkthrough is going to take you through the most important things to know about the new 1.10.40 patch.
Bethesda failed to deliver a new Fallout 4 patch in October, but the developer is back on track in November.
The latest Fallout 4 patch doesn’t come with a long list of new features, but it does deliver fixes for lingering Fallout 4 problems. Unlike the last two Fallout 4 updates, it doesn’t appear to bring any new Creation Club content to the game.
Fallout 4 1.10.40 Update Size
If you’re planning to play Fallout 4 right now, or in the near future, you’ll receive a prompt to download the game’s 1.10.40 patch. If you have automatic updates turned on, you should be able to jump right in.
The Fallout 4 1.10.40 update is much smaller than the two previous patches and it doesn’t require a ton of available space on your hard drive.
The size of the update will vary based on region and platform. And again, if you skipped previous Fallout 4 updates, you’ll be forced to download those files to your console or Windows PC before you can start playing.
The 1.10.40 patch took just a few minutes to download and install on the Xbox One.
No Fallout 4 Creation Club Content
The last two Fallout 4 updates delivered new Creation Club content, but it looks like the 1.10.40 is light on new features. We’ve checked the Creation Club store on the new update and there doesn’t appear to be any new content for those willing to pay money for mods.
Bethesda’s 1.10 patch supplied Fallout 4 owners with 100 free Creation Club credits. This update doesn’t bring any additional credits.
The current list of Fallout 4 Creation Club content includes:
- Hellfire Power Armor: 500 Credits
- Chinese Stealth Armor: 400 Credits
- Prototype Gauss Rifle: 400 Credits
- Modular Military Backpack: 400 Credits
- Morgan’s Space Suit (Prey): 300 Credits
- Modern Furniture Workshop Pack: 300 Credits
- Horse Power Armor: 250 Credits
- Handmade Shotgun: 200 Credits
- Power Armor Onyx Paint Job: 100 Credits
- Pip-Boy Swamp Paint Job: 50 Credits
- Pip-Boy Chrome Paint Job: 50 Credits
- Pip-BoyOnyx Paint Job: 50 Credits
In the United States you can pickup 750 credits for $8.00, 1500 credits for $15, 3000 for $25, and 5,500 for $40.
Instead, the Fallout 4 1.10.40 update is focused on fixing bugs including issues with Creation Club.
This patch fixes a crash related to changing profiles (Xbox One only), issues with screenshots displaying incorrectly in Creation Club/Mods, and bug fixes to Bethesda.net.
The Message of the Day heading has been revised and the developer’s changed the logic for how Creation Club content is initialized.
Fallout 4 players are also saying that Creation Club content will no longer break the Fallout 4 Script Extender, also known as the F4SE.
This update fixes some issues, but there are a lot of bugs plaguing the base game and its DLC content. Unfortunately, we don’t know when the next Fallout 4 update will emerge.
If the developer’s latest patch starts giving you trouble, take a look at our list of fixes for common Fallout 4 problems. You might find a fix there.
We expect Fallout 4 updates to continue, but we expect them to be sporadic at best.
Let's start with one of our favorite PC Fallout 4 mods that quickly made it over to console.
keyNuker creates a key ring in your inventory that hides keys and passwords. With it installed, your MISC tab in on your Pip-Boy is going to be a lot more manageable, particularly if you're deep into the game with tons and tons of items listed.
The screenshot here shows you what the vanilla MISC tab looks like compared to the MISC tab with keyNuker installed. It's night and day.
This is one of our favorite Fallout 4 mods and one that should consider if you're tired of wasting time scrolling through hundreds (many of them worthless) of items.
