Bethesda Softworks has detailed their approach to releasing game updates for Fallout 4 on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Thanking the fans for their support of the game, Bethesda Softworks revealed the process through which they will releases new updates for the game on all platforms.
Thank you! We can’t say it enough- thank you for the amazing support you’ve given us. We’re incredibly blessed to have so many incredible fans. You’ve made Fallout 4 not just our largest game launch ever, but one of the industry’s. It’s beyond anything we hoped for.
Our process for updating the game will include releasing a beta patch on Steam, followed by full release on PC, then release on the consoles. This process has worked well for us in the past and allows us to get more fixes out faster. Expect to see more updates, that are smaller and more frequent, than a few big ones. This allows us to make sure each fix is working right, as any change can have unintentional side effects in a game this huge. We expect the first beta patch to be up next week.
Fallout 4 currently has some major bugs on PC, PS4 and Xbox One including some that are game breaking for the players. The game also suffers from performance issues on the Xbox One and PS4, resulting in stutters and frame rate dropping to lower than the target 30 fps.
Fallout 4 is now available for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
