The first ‘opt in’ beta patch for Fallout 4 on PC doesn’t have a whole lot of accompanying changes, but that’s in-line with the stated plan to push out numerous ‘smaller’ patches. Presumably it’s safer not to overwhelm the notoriously fickle Gamebryo/Creation Engine with too many alterations at once.
Changelog for the patch is below, but first the instructions on how to get this patch if you like the sound of it. All you have to do is right-click on Fallout 4 in your Steam library, navigate to Settings, pop over to the Beta tab, and then select the update in the drop-down menu on that page. It should update your game automatically (if not, try restarting Steam to poke it into action).
Here’s what it does. You can remap the number pad keys now, among other things. “Memory and stability improvements” sound potentially helpful, too.
Beta Update 1.2.33:
- Number pad keys can now be used for remapping.
- Remapping Activate now works on Quick Container.
- 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.
