Fallout 4 Patch Released on PS4, See What's New and Changed Here

Update 1.7 has now arrived on all platforms.


Following its release last week for Xbox One and PC, Fallout 4's latest update landed today on PlayStation 4. This update adds support for the upcoming Nuka-World expansion and contains one PS4-exclusive feature: the welcome-sounding ability to delete add-ons without performing a full uninstall.

There are also a number of fixes included with Fallout 4 1.7, one of which is for a problem where some dog armor would not properly equip on Dogmeat. The patch also fixes an issue where companions would unequip clothing while fast-traveling with the player.

Some fixes for Fallout 4's mods program are also included, but these only pertain to Xbox One and PC because mod support is still not available on PS4. One of the fixes is for a problem where "sneaking would turn player invisible while running with mods." There are also "minor" UI improvements to the mods and mods detail menus.

The complete patch notes, as written by Bethesda, can be seen below.

Nuka-World, which is Fallout 4's final expansion, launches on August 30 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Bethesda will show off new gameplay footage from it during a livestream event on August 23.
