Fallout 4 Update 1.7 Launches on PC, PS4, and XBO, Bringing Nuka-World Support and Fixes

on August 22, 2016 2:03 PM

It’s time again for another Fallout 4 update, bringing a familiar slew of features, fixes, and more. Launching across all three available platforms, the main feature of Update 1.7 is support for the upcoming Nuka-World DLC.

However, the update also adds a ton of fixes across the board, to not only the main game but the DLC. If you have been plagued with bugs as of late, check the list below to see if your issue has been fixed.

Unfortunately, this is yet another update without mod support for the PlayStation 4. PS4 mod support was promised earlier this summer, but was later pulled due to compatibility issues. Since then, the feature has remained in a continued hiatus.
