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

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.

    Sorry but Bethesda has hardly changed the base game at all from patch 1.02 to 1.04 and that is a fact. The main thing they have changed are the glitches that helped players & left in the buggy mess that is the settlement alert glitch that has been a pain since launch. You go to your pipboy to check settlement status see the alert sign of an unhappy population be it not enough beds, water, Defence or all the above so you fast travel to get there only to find that everything is fine even the alert disappears. Now that doesn’t sound like they’re doing a good job with these patches they are bestowing on us, all they are doing are taking out glitches that were helping players and making a frustrating but fun game even more frustrating

      The resources bug is extremely annoying to anyone who enjoys building settlements.

      The net is full of advice from various gamers on how to avoid the bug. I’ve tried everything they recommended. Nothing works.

      I sure hope Bethesda takes this bug seriously. My enjoyment of FO4 will be orders of magnitude better if I don’t have to rush to settlements whose resources have dropped off a cliff, only to find that they’re fine, and their happiness rating was plummeting for no good reason.

        If you’re talking about the glitch where it shows settlements with less food/beds/water/power/defense than it actually has, causing the happiness to go down. The best solution is to not fast travel from inside settlements. Just jog a little distance outside the settlement boundary before fast traveling away, you don’t have to go super far. Estimate100 feet . Ever since I started using that method, I’ve had no more issues

    Howdoes 1 person get to change the flow of the developers ? I enjoy Fallout4 even when it lags and glitches. The improvement in the game for me would be missions that ment upgrading some of the cars, bikes and trucks.

Some people may be of the opinion that your the idiot because of the way you chose to express your disagreement of Hopesavers comment.

    My gameplay has been just fine, I haven’t had any glitches, except for Trashcan Carla’s cow on the roof of my house. I have no idea how it got on the roof. There’s no stairs and it just stays up on the roof.

    If they could make a fix for the scribe and smiling larry to show up at assigned settlement that’d be a game changer. I’ve been practically begging for it but I guess I’m just SOL.

    I’m not sure if I’m even gonna pick the game back up to complete it until I see an announcement saying they’ve got rid of those GOD AWFUL Minuteman Radiant quest that you can’t just ignore.

    i F**KING HATE RADIANT QUESTS. Fallout 4 has so far been nowhere near as much fun as Fallout 3. And this is coming from a guy who never had a bad word to say about Bethesda. Hell, I’ve enjoyed ESO FAR MORE than Fallout 4 :-(

Where you take the, “Mechanist Device,” off the robobrain and it still says search the robobrain even though I already did. Has anybody found a way to get past that and continue the quests. Much appreciated. Thanks

    One of THE most bug-infested games I’ve ever played. The setting building mode was atrocious. Parts didn’t fit correctly, the the ‘snap connections’ were finicky. Instructions were terrible for connecting electrical components.

    My opinion is, even with the bugs and glitches that have been occurring since the game was released last year, I was so happy to find out fallout 4 had been made and was being released so soon after announcements, I expected a lot of problems with it. However the game is pretty amazing, and I’ve already lost hundreds of hours of my life playing it and have been happy to put up with the bugs, but it’s a bonus that Bethesda are actually trying to do what they can to make sure the game is as great and bug free as possible so I just appreciate that so far, for me, the game has passed my expectations, and I’m happy with that. That said, hurry up with the console mods! I’m excited yet impatient! Not long now though :)

    People! No one is holding you hostage w a gun to your head saying “play! Deal w the bugs and like it or DIE”! So, that said, if you don’t like it, or in some cases hate it w a passion, here’s and idea, stop playing. I’m level 85 and still in love w the game on the one, bugs and all. The fact that Bethesda is ahead of the timeline, that they’re actually dedicated to fixing the issues, and have consistently been at the top of my favorite game list’s for 5 years, common. This isn’t about fallout, this is about your dad, maybe an uncle. Grow up. If you can’t handle a few bugs you are no gamer and need to find new hobbies
