Exit Saves, Codsworth Names and More Added in Fallout 4 PC Update

on July 6, 2016 2:04 AM

While PlayStation 4 users of Fallout 4 are still sitting idly by waiting for official mod support, PC players got a new update adding some limited features and fixes. The two most notable features include 300 new player names added to Codworth’s name recognition as well as ExitSaves that will automatically save the game when quitting out.

Of course, features aren’t the only thing included in the update. Also present are  variety of small bug repairs and UI fixes to tie a bow on the package.
