Fallout 4 Update Patch 1.4 is hitting beta today, bringing with it a bunch of bug fixes and overall improvements for the open-world RPG. The main focus of this update seems to be adding extra cosmetic items for the Fallout 4 Workshop, allowing you to “add even more character to your settlements.”
Currently only Fallout 4 PC players can access the new update, and only if they have opted into the beta patch within Steam. To do this just “Right Click on Fallout 4 in your Library. Select Settings. Select Betas. A drop down menu will appear. Select Beta Update. Select OK. Wait a few minutes and Fallout 4 should update.”
Once you do you should download Fallout 4 Update 1.4 automatically. This will add a bunch of new items to your Workshops, such as “Super Mutant clutter including meat totems, meat bags and meat cart. Raider clutter including raider poles, cages and tents. Abstract and portrait paintings. Variety of new signs. More metal and wood doors variants.”
There are also a ton of gameplay and other fixes coming to the game via this patch. You can check out the full patch notes here, but these are some of our favorites: Settlements under attack will now display an updated message with the results of the attack if player does not respond. Fixed an issue with screen effects not clearing away properly after using a scope. The Scrounger perk now includes additional common ammo types. Fixed issue that would cause the Pip-Boy menu to turn invisible while swimming. Fixed issue with vendors not properly exchanging caps after several consecutive transactions in a row. Fixed an issue where updating to the latest patch would cause Options settings to reset back to default (Xbox One).
Fallout 4 is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Expect the 1.4 update to hit other platforms once it comes out of beta.
