Fallout 4, like all open-world games, has some (how should I put this?) idiosyncrasies. There have been all manner of glitches shared online, with some of the Brahmin Caravan-themed ones being particularly hilarious. Anyway, Brahmin Caravans aren’t supposed to be able to clip through the roof and stand on your character while he/she sleeps, but they’re doing it anyway. Bethesda would rather those pesky Brahmin didn’t, however, and so we’re getting a patch for the game next week.
In a post over on the Bethesda blog, the developer revealed their strategy for implementing fixes for the game. A beta version of every patch will land on the PC first. Once it’s been verified that the beta patch doesn’t break things further, it’ll be released properly for the rest of the PC fraternity that wasn’t brave enough to opt-in to beta patching. Once that’s done, the patch will be pushed to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
“It’s true that the freedom our games offer you can lead to unintentional consequences that are sometimes bad, when the game combines too many unexpected elements at once,” the blog post reads. “Given the scale and complexity of the systems at work, especially when allowing you to build your own settlements, we’re happy that Fallout 4 is our most robust and solid release ever, and we’d like to thank our amazing QA staff who worked as hard as anyone to break the game so we could fix it during development. But a hundred testers will never replicate the many millions playing the game now, and we’re hard at work addressing the top issues.”
