Bethesda's First Patch For 'Fallout 4' Arrives As Beta

Last week, Bethesda's post-launch Fallout 4 plans included more frequent and smaller updates, starting with a beta patch this week. The update came earlier than expected, four days after the company's initial announcement.

As promised, this first update (version 1.2.33) is small, including only two new features and six fixes. As the patch is still in its beta stages, Bethesda advised players to back up their hard-earned saves before updating the game.

FeaturesNumber pad keys can now be used for remappingRemapping Activate now works on Quick ContainerFixesGeneral memory and stability improvementsFixed issue where equipped weapons become locked after completing ReunionsFixed issue with When Freedom Calls where the quest would not completeDuring Confidence Man, fixed issue where player's health would continuously regenerateFixed crash related to jumping into water and reloading saved gamesFixed issue where Launcher would not save God Rays Quality setting properly

To get the update, you must first right-click on the game in your Steam Library, go to Settings, select the Betas section, and click on the beta patch to update it. With Bethesda releasing more frequent updates, the final version of this patch should come soon.
