The first patch for “Fallout 4” has finally arrived on PlayStation 4 (PS4) consoles.
GameSpot reports that PS4 is the second to receive the update–called 1.2–after it has been launched on PCs earlier this week. According to the website, Bethesda Game Studios announced the availability of the patch via Twitter.
The tweet by the studios also informs that the patch will be available for Xbox One later in the week.
GameSpot details that the 1.2 update is 505 MB in size. The website also lists down the fixes for the version. Some of the patch notes that GameSpot detailed include the following:
Fixed issue with player becoming stuck in terminals
Fixed issue where equipped weapons become locked after completing Reunions
Fixed issue with “When Freedom Calls” where the quest would not complete
Fixed crash related to jumping into water and reloading saved games

Meanwhile, Gotta Be Mobile offers some helpful tips with regard to welcoming the version 1.2 update. For one, the website notes that the 505 MB size is a bit large so it will be helpful to free up some memory on players’ PS4 or external hardrive. Gotta Be Mobile also suggests that plugging the ethernet cable directly to the PS4 will help in speeding up the update download.
However, although the “Fallout 4” patch offers a number of fixes for previous problems, Gotta Be Mobile raises that gamers are still complaining about many other issues that 1.2 was not able to fix.
In another article, Gotta Be Mobile delves on “Fallout 4” problems that gamers have encountered ever since it came out. Among the issues relayed by the website–as pointed out by gamers themselves–include problems getting in and out of the elevator, buttons on a terminal and difficulty switching the game into full screen mode.
Based on the list of fixes, it appears that some of the problems have not yet been addressed.
Xbox One players can expect the “Fallout 4” patch in their consoles within the week.
