Bethesda is releasing a patch for Fallout 4's new survival mode, which tweaks some elements like food requirements and carry capacity.

Fallout 4 recently introduced survival mode, a mode that makes life in the wasteland a little more difficult. It’s being patched to make certain elements a little easier and others more realistic and challenging.

You’ll no longer have to eat or drink as much as you roam, but you won’t have the energy to carry as much either, and fusion cores weigh more too.

Tweaks as a result of this patch include:

  • Thirst, hunger, sleep and disease icons will change color based on status
  • Carry capacity lowered
  • Sleep cycle has been lowered from 24 hours to 14 hour days
  • Reduced chances to getting a disease
  • Fusion cores weigh more
  • Nuka Cola Quantums no longer cancel out caffeine effect from Nuka Cola and Nuka Cola Cherry
  • Fixed occasional issue with becoming parched or peckish when thirst or hunger are actually satisfied
  • Fixed issue where Adrenaline effect would incorrectly persist after changing difficulty level
  • When companion is down, a quest target will appear on them

Fallout 4’s survival mode is currently in beta on PC; it’ll be released on PS4 and Xbox One some time this month.
