Bethesda to Release Fallout 4 Update on May 13 to Address Next-Gen Issues

Bethesda has announced that a new update for Fallout 4 will be released on Monday, May 13 to address issues introduced by the previous next-gen update. The upcoming patch will include fixes for graphics settings, performance problems, and other issues that arose after the last update, which was met with criticism from players on both console and PC.

According to Bethesda, the update will be available on all three platforms: PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S consoles. In a statement, the company said: "On Monday, May 13 we will be updating Fallout 4 on all platforms. This update will include new options for graphics and performance settings as well as further fixes and improvements. Thanks for your continued feedback and support!"

The update aims to resolve problems such as broken, invisible weapons and insufficient support for wide displays. However, PC players are concerned that the patch may break their mods again, an issue that has persisted since the last update. Modders may need to repair their tools and ensure compatibility with the new version, which could take time.

The previous next-gen update, released on April 25, was intended to improve and fix the nearly decade-old open-world RPG. However, it led to the breakage of mods, the delay of a highly anticipated fan-developed expansion called Fallout: London, and introduced new glitches. The update was poorly received by fans, who saw it as an unnecessary change that caused more problems than it solved.

Specifically, Steam Deck players lost access to most graphical settings, console players reported new texture bugs, and PC players had their mods broken. The community has been vocal about these issues, prompting Bethesda's quick response with the May 13 update announcement.

While the exact details of the upcoming patch are unknown, Bethesda has expressed gratitude for the community's continued feedback and support. Fans of the game are hopeful that this update will rectify the problems introduced by the previous one and bring stability to theFallout 4 experience. Players are advised to exercise caution and wait for others to test the update before installing it, especially if they are concerned about their mods and save files.
