Fallout-4

Fallout 4 has definitely been one of Bethesda’s most stable releases, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have its fair share of bugs and glitches. The developer has followed up the November release with a few updates and patches, fixing up problems, and adding in some new features. The latest, Fallout 4 Update 1.3 is available now on PC, with PS4 and Xbox One gamers getting it later this week. Check out a few of the things it changes below:

This being a major, numbered patch, Fallout 4 Update 1.3 contains some new features, many of which are PC-exclusive. These are: “New ambient occlusion setting, HBAO+ (PC), New weapon debris effects (PC NVIDIA cards), Added status menu for settlers in your settlements, Added ability to rotate an object you are holding with left/right triggers and pressing down on left thumbstick lets you switch the rotating axis, Improved “ESDF” keys remapping support while in Workshop mode (PC).”

As far as fixes and overall bugs go, there’s too many to list here, so we picked some of our favorites. These include: “Improved performance when looking through a scope, Fixed an issue where Vault 81 residents would not dismember correctly, Fixed an issue where subtitles would occasionally not update properly, MacReady’s Killshot perk now calculates headshot percentages properly, Fixed an issue with NPCs getting stuck in Power Armor, Fixed an issue where the player could no longer get Preston as a companion.”

The Fallout 4 Workshop was also hit with this update, adding some really nice features for the popular mode. “Fixed a bug that would cause settler counts to appear incorrectly, Improvements to snapping pieces together while in Workshop mode, Building wires no longer uses up copper, Fixed an issue with settlement happiness calculations, Settlers assigned to weapons stand will now stand next to it, Fixed an issue where companion would ignore commands at workshop locations.”
