Fallout 4: VR Gets a New Update Addressing Various In-Game Issues

Bethesda has rolled out its first update for Fallout 4 VR, which addresses numerous in-game issues such as the title's overall performance and visuals.

Fallout 4 VR has been out for over a month now, and while I enjoyed my time back into the Bostonian wasteland in VR, the game had its fair share of problems. Luckily, this week the game’s publisher announced a brand-new update to address several in-game problems.

According to a Reddit post by users jessBethesda, a beta version for Fallout 4 VR‘s update is available now on Steam. Although a full release for the update has yet to be revealed, gamers looking to try out this version of Fallout 4 VR can access this version by logging on their Steam accounts, right-clicking Fallout 4 VR in their library, selecting properties, then betas, and selecting “Update”

The patch notes included on the post offers a slew of hotfixes to various gameplay mechanics. Several highlights this beta update offers includes improved V.A.T.S., scope support, fixed compass orientation when equipping Power Armor, and size modifications to your Pip-Boy. Additionally, the update also makes improvements to the game’s overall performance and quality options, to ensure a much more smoother experience when playing the game.

You can check out the full rundown of all the changes features in the update below. For more information on the game, check out the PC system requirements needed to run the game, as well as my editorial where I share my thoughts on returning to the Commonwealth wasteland in virtual reality.
