Fallout 4’s last DLC, Nuka World, will be available next week and Bethesda made sure that the release of game’s final downloadable content will be a smooth one.
To ensure that gamers will have a nearly bug-free experience, Bethesda Studios has released patch 1.7 ahead of Nuka World’s release.
The update brings with it a slew of fixes and improvements across the board. For example, there was a bug before that whenever you have a companion fast traveling with you, their equipment will be left behind. That has been fixed.
Ever equipped something on Dog Meat and he appears to have lost it? Well, that has been fixed as well. Now, with this patch, you can actually have Dogmeat wear all of the equipment you give him.
Also, have you ever talked to the Quartermaster only for him to lead you to certain locations where there really is nothing there? That has also been fixed.
There are a lot of fixes and improvements ranging from fast traveling issues to bugs in certain NPC interactions.
Patch 1.7 also brought with it new store art types for your workshop settlements as well. This is to further enhance what the 2 previously released DLCs, the Automatron and the Vault-TEC workshop, had to offer.
The patch also included some mods fixes as well. This patch fixed an issue where a mod’s image will not load when you’re browsing through the mods catalog. This will not give you a glimpse of what a particular mod has to offer which is pretty nice.
Back in the day, you can only disable mods when you are online (probably to sync everything from your platform to their system). But, players can now disable all mods offline. This alleviates the need for people to connect to the internet just to disable the mods in the game.
Also, there is a bug pre-patch wherein whenever the player sneaks, it would turn them invisible when there are certain mods being used. That has been fixed now with the patch. So, for players who think that they’re still invisible to the enemy’s eye, you better watch out for them now as they are going to come after you for messing with them before this patch was released.
The Patch 1.7 is centered on bug fixes in what Bethesda thinks will help the game before the release of Nuka World, which according to the gaming company, will be the last DLC update of the game.
With that being said, the game will retail for $20 as a standalone product but if you happen to have the game’s Season Pass, the game will be available for download absolutely free of charge.
Furthermore, for people who haven’t bought any of the game’s DLC, Bethesda might release an Ultimate Edition where they will release all of the game’s DLC and you only have to pay one price premium.
Anyway, Patch 1.7 is now available on the PC and on the Xbox One. Playstation 4 players might have to wait for a week to get the update on their respective platforms.
Fallout 4 Nuka World DLC update will be available on August 30, 2016, and will be available on the PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 game consoles.
