First Fallout 4 Update: 5 Things to Expect & 4 Things Not To

Bethesda’s first Fallout 4 patch is here. In beta form. For PC. There are still a number of big question marks and that means that there are still tons of questions about the release. With those in mind, we want to take a look at few things to expect from Bethesda and the first Fallout 4 update for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Two weeks ago, Bethesda released Fallout 4 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game, a follow-up to 2008’s Fallout 3, has been given high marks from critics and gamers around the world for its open-world gameplay, story, crafting, and more. It’s one of the best games of 2015 but it’s not perfect.

Fallout 4 is riddled with problems. From broken quests to disappearing Pip Boys to bugged enemies, Bethesda’s latest masterpiece has as diverse set of faults that have impacted performance across all three platforms.

Last week, the company addressed these complaints for the first time with a blog post that confirmed plans to release the first major Fallout 4 update this week. Bethesda released a day one patch but in our eyes, that doesn’t count. This November Fallout 4 update is the first post-release update.

Earlier this week, as promised, Bethesda delivered its first Fallout 4 update for PC. It’s available in beta form right now and it comes with a couple of new features and a list of important bug fixes for glaring Fallout 4 problems. Other details are scarce though.

We’ve been getting loads of questions about the first patch and some people are already setting themselves up for disappointment.

With all of that in mind, we want to make some predictions regarding the first Fallout 4 update for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. These will hopefully help you set your own expectations as we push towards the release.

Don't Expect It to Fix Everything

Don't Expect It to Fix Everything

This should be obvious. Don't expect the first Fallout 4 patch to fix all of the problems plaguing the game on PC, PS4 or Xbox One. 

Bethesda's come out of the gates with some essential fixes including a patch for a broken quest. It's going to tackle some of the more glaring problems but it won't get to them all.

There will still be broken quests. There will still be weird glitches. And there will still bugs that linger for days, weeks, maybe even months into the future. If you can't handle that, sell the game. Or if you haven't bought it yet, wait. 

This first update is a solid first step but remember this is a marathon, not a sprint. It's going to take months for Bethesda to get around to all of the major problems plaguing this game. That's why we recommend being proactive. Try to fix your problems yourself

    Probably the worst article I’ve ever read. I don’t think there is a more effective way to get me to never read an article from your site than to write an article stating that you don’t know anything. You speculate in ways that make the word “outrageously broad” seem like a gentle way to put it.

    The only thing interesting about this article is the truthful remarks from others that explain how terrible this article is and a total waste of time. Garbage.

    Horrible article. The author said the same thing in 3 different pages. And the constant reload of every page made me want to never come here again.

    Whoever wrote this should really just not post things publicly that pertain to video games anymore. The only helpful thing about this is the overarching idea that Bethesda can’t fix all the problems with this game. However, this article is awful and doesn’t provide any substantial info that we as readers can learn that we don’t already know. Simply put, this article is terrible and I will not be reading things from this website again.
