Game studio Bethesda has announced that the first patch for Fallout 4 will be released next week. It will first be a beta patch for the PC version on Steam. The final patch will follow later and the improvements will also be brought to the console versions.

Bethesda announces the arrival of the patch on its blog. Although the console versions in particular suffer from performance issues, the update will appear first for the PC version. Bethesda won’t give any details on which bugs the patch will fix, but says it’s working on fixing the top issues. By releasing the patch first on the PC and later on the consoles, Bethesda says it can publish more and faster updates. The same way of working was also applied to previous games.

Although Bethesda’s games are highly regarded and receive good reviews, they are also known for many bugs. Game developer Zak McClendon recently wrote an extensive argument on Wired why Bethesda should not change this. He argues that it is not possible to deliver a perfectly polished game that offers as much freedom as Fallout 4.

Fallout 4 is one of the most successful games of 2015. On the day of its release, the game sold 12 million copies, with a turnover of more than 750 million dollars. Right after its release, more than 470,000 people played the PC version simultaneously on Steam. A number not seen before in games that are not from Valve itself.
