PS4 And Xbox One: 'Skyrim' And 'Fallout 4' Patches Now Available
Video game developer Bethesda has released important updates for two of its popular games. These patches are for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4.
Patch 1.4 for Skyrim and patch 1.9 for Fallout 4 was already available for the PC but now the developers have released them for both the PS4 and Xbox One. These updates fix some mod-related issues, as well as address bugs in the games.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Update
The Special Edition of the highly acclaimed 2011 roleplaying game from Bethesda was released in October 2016. The Special Edition brought the game to the current generation of consoles and moreover improved the graphics drastically. This version of the game included all three DLCs - Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn.
The recent patch 1.4 has added quite a few features and fixes to the game. A category called Featured has been added for mods. Highest Rated and Most Favorited filters can now be sorted by today, week, month and all time.
Addition of ratings count was also made to the Mods Browsing Menu. The patch also updates the number of favorites count and the required dependencies to the Mod Details page.
The fixes introduced with this update include general improvements in performance and stability and enhancements made to the Reporting mods categories. Issues regarding crashes while scrolling through the Load Order menu have also been fixed and improvements have been made to the error messaging of Bethesda.net.
Fallout 4 Update
Fallout 4 was announced in E3 2015 and was launched the same year in November for PS4, Xbox One and PC. It is an RPG based on a post nuclear collapsed world. Fans had high expectations from the game and it managed to deliver.
Bethesda has now released the 1.9 patch for the game. It not only fixes bugs and internal issues but provides the important update support for PS4 Pro consoles.
The patch also brings performance enhancements and stability improvements. It also brings the ratings count to the menu for Mods Browsing, the option to sift through the Most Favorited filters and Highest Rates, and also adds the favorites count to the Mod Details section.
Most of the updates are similar to those released for Skyrim Special Edition. Most of the updates are related to mods including fixes for crashes in the Load Order menu and improvements to Bethesda.net error messaging.
These patches will be a welcome sight for gamers who are hooked on to both games. Both the patches are live now.
