The first patch for Fallout 4 has been released on PC and is available to download via Steam. A full update will be released on PCs with consoles to follow.

Fallout 4’s first patch has arrived on PC, though it’s a beta initially.

The patch can be downloaded via Steam. But, as it’s a beta, the patch won’t download automatically.

To download the patch, go to Fallout 4 in your Steam Library, and select Betas under the Settings tab. Pick "Select Beta Update" and then "Okay." Fallout 4 will then be listed as "Fallout 4 [beta]" in your library and contain the update.

If you want to go back to the previous version of the game, you can uninstall the update from the Betas menu.

The update contains a couple of new features and a handful of general fixes. Bethesda will release a finalised version of this patch on PC first with consoles to follow.
