Fallout 4 gets first official PC patch, coming to PS4 and Xbox One this week

Bug fixes, new features, and more arrive with new patch; consoles get it later this week.

The final, non-beta version of Fallout 4's first patch is now available on PC and is expected to launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this week, Bethesda has announced. The patch was released in beta form earlier this month through Steam.

Bethesda Softworks

The 1.2 patch notes, posted in the game's forum, include bug fixes for things like players getting stuck in terminals and another issue involving the "When Freedom Calls" quest. The update also delivers "general memory and stability improvements" as well as a fix for crashes that triggered when jumping in water.

It sounds like that could be in reference to a bug one player discovered where they fell into the sea and found a mysterious structure.

There are also some PC-specific tweaks and new features, such as the ability to remap the number pad keys. The complete 1.2 patch notes are below. We'll have more details on the console release as they become available.
