Fallout: New Vegas has a “comprehensive” patch incoming

1 min read

Thank goodness! While patches for each of the three platforms have already been released, they only fixed a few of the immediate bugs. The patches didn’t squash all the bugs, however, and the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game are still a little shaky.

Alright, maybe they’re more than a little shaky, but still, the game is loads of fun especially when you’re not picking radscorpion stingers out of your face. Over on the Bethesda blog there’s an update on how things are progressing regarding this “comprehensive” patch.

The patch will be for all three platforms and the good news for Xbox 360 players is that the save game glitch will be remedied. According to Bethesda they are “currently running final testing and certification on a comprehensive patch for all three platforms (PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3), so we’ll have something available in the coming weeks”.

“Coming weeks”? Damn, that’s a while off. There is other good news though, especially for PC players with NVIDIA hardware as an additional patch should go live next week that will fix performance issues. The PC save game issue (which I, thankfully, wasn’t even aware existed) and companion issues will also be addressed as well as some Havoc related bugs.

I’m chuffed there’s an NVIDIA fix coming; my framerate disappears the moment I have more than three NPCs on screen at once. It makes gunfights interesting to say the least.
