'Fallout 4' New Patch Brings Improvements, Fixes To 'Contraptions' DLC; PS4 Mods Only Inches Away From Release Date

Bethesda has just recently unleashed the newest "Fallout 4" DLC titled "Contraptions." Unfortunately, the content introduced a couple of bugs and glitches to the game. Nonetheless, the studio was quick to resolve the situation by releasing a new patch. Meanwhile, the title's PS4 mods are said to be inches away from becoming a reality.

"Fallout 4" is without a doubt a game with complexity -- in one way or another. Hence it is completely understandable for a handful of glitches to make their way in. And this is exactly what happened when "Contraptions" DLC was released.

Fortunately, as reported by Tech Times, Bethesda unleashed a new patch that brought some fixes to the ongoing issues. The said "Fallout 4" patch has provided performance improvements as well as general stability. More so, the glitches found in both weapons and armors, namely losing mods and Legendary status, have been well-covered.

One known "Fallout 4" issue is in the Add-Ons menu. It has been wrongfully tagging "Vault Tech Workshop" and "Nuka World" as available. Although the new patch did not really offer a direct solution to it, the studio is reportedly working alongside Valve to fix it.

Below are the fixes and features of the new "Fallout 4" patch:


  • General stability and performance improvements
  • Fixed issue with weapons and armor losing mods and Legendary status when removed from armor and weapon racks (Contraptions)
  • Improved stability when reinitializing with certain mods loaded
  • Mod menu will check available space before starting mod downloads
  • Fixed issue with certain mods not downloading properly
  • Fixed issue with certain mods not appearing properly in the Load Order menu


  • Increased space for Mod text on Mod details page for improved readability
  • Load Order menu now displays text about each Mod when highlighted
  • Most Popular filter now toggles between Daily, Weekly and All Time (defaults to Daily)
  • Reporting categories added when reporting a mod
  • Load Order menu displays options to Disable or Delete All Mods
  • Count of ratings now appears on Mod details page

Meanwhile, according to Destructoid, the much awaited "Fallout 4" PS4 mods are close to being released. Last time, Bethesda and Sony were having a bit of a problem with the game's mods on the console. Since then, the two have been working together to solve the issues.

The aforementioned patch is actually iving proof of the gaming companies teamwork. The new update, as seen on the patch notes, is mostly related to the mods. With this, the highly anticipated mods might finally be settled.
