Fallout 4 is an amazing game. Not only does the game feature a huge, intricately-detailed world, but it features so many different characters, quests and side objectives that it's entirely possible to find something new even after more than 100 hours of play.

That being said, it's not a perfect game: with such a massive world, there are bound to be a few issues that slip through the cracks. Long story short, the game is generally pretty glitchy, and the console editions of the game don't really stack up to the PC version. Thankfully, Bethesda isn't content to sit back and relax: the developer is currently hard at work on Fallout 4's first major patch.

As with most early patches, Fallout 4 update 1.2.33 is relatively tame: most of the fixes are set to help the game run more smoothly, as well as fix a number of different obnoxious glitches. That being said, patch 1.2.33 does include a one noteworthy addition - if you're playing on PC, at least.

The biggest update comes in the form of remapping number pad keys: players will now be able to assign any number of inputs to the NumPad keys, be it for item shortcuts or interaction prompts. It's a small change, to be sure, but anyone hoping to use their keyboard to its fullest will be happy to see it integrated.

The rest of the patch is fairly boilerplate, as evidenced by Bethesda's patch notes:

New Features

• Number pad keys can now be used for remapping
• Remapping Activate now works on Quick Container

Fixes

• General memory and stability improvements
• Fixed issue where equipped weapons become locked after completing Reunions
• Fixed issue with When Freedom Calls where the quest would not complete
• During Confidence Man, fixed issue where player's health would continuously regenerate
• Fixed crash related to jumping into water and reloading saved games
• Fixed issue where Launcher would not save God Rays Quality setting properly

Anyone who's opted in to Bethesda's beta update program should already have patch 1.2.33 downloaded - if it isn't, you should be able to download it the next time you start up Steam. Everyone else on PC should expect the update within the next few weeks, with a console version of the patch following soon thereafter.
