“It’s true that the freedom our games offer you can lead to unintentional consequences that are sometimes bad, when the game combines too many unexpected elements at once,” the Bethesda statement reads.
“Given the scale and complexity of the systems at work, especially when allowing you to build your own settlements, we’re happy that Fallout 4 is our most robust and solid release ever, and we’d like to thank our amazing QA staff who worked as hard as anyone to break the game so we could fix it during development.
“But a hundred testers will never replicate the many millions playing the game now, and we’re hard at work addressing the top issues.”
Fans on Steam can expect to get the patch first, followed by other PC gamers and then Xbox One and PS4 owners.
“Our process for updating the game will include releasing a beta patch on Steam, followed by full release on PC, then release on the consoles,” the Bethesda statement adds.
