There’s a beta patch coming for PC next week.
Bethesda has claimed that Fallout 4 is its “most robust and solid release ever.”
“It’s true that the freedom our games offer you can lead to unintentional consequences that are sometimes bad, when the game combines too many unexpected elements at once,” said the company in its latest update.
“Given the scale and complexity of the systems at work, especially when allowing you to build your own settlements, we’re happy that Fallout 4 is our most robust and solid release ever, and we’d like to thank our amazing QA staff who worked as hard as anyone to break the game so we could fix it during development. But a hundred testers will never replicate the many millions playing the game now, and we’re hard at work addressing the top issues.”
Bethesda plans to address technical problems with the game via a beta patch for Steam, which will then evolve into a full patch. This will then be rolled out on PS4 and Xbox One.
“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.”
