Bethesda cautions that this Fallout 4 update is non-final and suggests you back up your saved games before opting in to the beta. You can do that by right clicking the game in your library -> Properies -> Betas. You can drop out of the beta at any time in the same menu.

Last week, Bethesda said it was "hard at work addressing the top issues." Patches will be released in beta on Steam first, followed by a full release on PC before coming to consoles last. Generally speaking, Fallout 4 players can also look forward to "smaller and more frequent" updates rather than a few major ones.

No time table was provided regarding when this Fallout 4 patch will be released to everyone on PC and consoles. We'll have that information for you as it's announced.
