Fallout 4 1.5 update and Survival Mode to hit consoles ‘in coming weeks’

What a time to stay alive

Bethesda has released some minor fixes in the Fallout 4 1.5 patch line on PC, for those who decided to opt into the beta, perhaps to try out the new, more challenging Survival Mode.

Today’s update (there are instructions on how to access the beta there, too) addresses:

  • While in Workshop mode, if the Jump button is remapped, the Y or Triangle button can still be used to jump
  • Ability to delete downloadable content via the Add-Ons menu (PS4)
  • Fixed issue with “Defend the Castle” where speaking to Ronnie Shaw would not properly complete the quest
  • During “The Nuclear Option,” fast traveling away from the Institute immediately after inserting the relay targeting sequence holotape will no longer block progression
  • Fixed issue where Workshop placed light bulbs would occasionally not light properly

At the end of March Bethesda said, “this update will be available on consoles next month,” while today’s post reads, “in the coming weeks, 1.5 – complete with Survival Mode – will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.” Given that there is only a week and a half left in April, not sure if that means consoles won’t see it until May, or if the second week due up is enough to warrants the “in coming weeks.”

Also note:

“Please note that we strongly advise players running third party mod managers to back up saves and disable/uninstall them before opting into the Beta, until they have been updated to support the new changes from the 1.5 Update.”
