A few weeks after Fallout 4 was released and the first reviews for the PC version came in, Bethesda set to work on a patch that is supposed to address some of the most annoying bugs in the game.
The patch, labelled as Beta Update 1.2.33 is said to be adding a few new features which should make playing Fallout 4 a better experience, such as the ability to use Number Pad keys while remapping and to select a different key for the Activate button (default E).
Along with the new features, a certain amount of bugs have been fixed. Here is a full changelog:
- General memory and stability improvements
- Fixed issue where equipped weapons become locked after completing Reunions
- Fixed issue with When Freedom Calls where the quest would not complete
- During Confidence Man, fixed issue where player’s health would continuously regenerate
- Fixed crash related to jumping into water and reloading saved games
- Fixed issue where Launcher would not save God Rays Quality setting properly
In order to get the patch, you’ll need to activate the beta repositories for Fallout 4. To do so, you can select Fallout 4 in your library, right click on it, select Settings, Select Betas and select “Beta Update” from the drop down menu. Waiting a few minutes will allow Fallout 4 to update, installing the patch in the process.
