Fallout 4 1.2 patch now out on all platforms; addresses performance issues
Bethesda is notorious for having overly-buggy games at launch with almost every major release from them having some notable issues. Fallout 4 has been surprisingly clean breaking from that standard, but there have still been some issues — like duplication glitches and an infinite caps exploit that have unfairly benefited players.
For now, Bethesda has addressed more technical issues while adding some minor features to the PC version of the game. Crashes, memory allocation, texture loading, and other performance issues have been corrected.
Bethesda hasn’t officially addressed the duplication or the infinite caps glitches but they will likely continue to work on a fix for the next patch.
