FALLOUT 76 GETS ITS FIRST MAJOR PATCH/FIXES AND IT’S HUGE!
Fallout 76 has recently made its November launch, to which, has not exactly met good reception from gamers. There’s been general reports of bugs, game breaking glitches, insanely long loading screens, and an overall lack of substance of the things that make Fallout what it is.
The premise of the game is to have a multiplayer Fallout experience with other players as you venture across the wasteland in the usual style of a Bethesda Studios Fallout title, however, there has been many hiccups since its debut.
The game’s first patch has dropped for players to update their Fallout for the, most notably, game performance and stability bug fixes. Make sure you have available space for the patch, especially since on the PlayStation 4 the size of the download will be 47GB, though its PC counterpart will come in at about 15GB. The patch is massive as it includes pretty much the essentials that were necessary for the game to function properly from the start, but it also brings fixes to the connectivity with other players, graphical texture, and quests.
Bethesda’s Elder Scroll Online didn’t start off with the perfect release either, but it wasn’t as controversial as with Fallout 76. The game’s new patch notes can be viewed in their entirety below.
