Fallout 4’s latest beta update prepares for DLC

Fallout 4 - DLC Far Harbor

Few and far between they may be, Fallout 4’s glacial trickle, that is its updates, is slowly fixing the many issues we’ve had with the game since launch – some have even fixed issues introduced by updates themselves.

Then, every now and then there’s a few new features introduced, like new textures and meshes, graphical settings and the odd item or two, most of which pertains to the workshop.

Now, via Fallout 4’s latest 1.4.124 beta patch, there’s something else added you might be interested in, add-on support.

We’re fairly certain that pertains to the game’s recently announced DLC – we’re hoping for Automatron top drop first.

The patch also introduced a bevy of fixes and tweaks, many of which have been fixed by modders but that we’re sure those playing the game on the consoles will appreciate.
