Fallout 4 patch adds new settlement items, mods to arrive with DLC

It's all go when it comes to Fallout 4 news. First off, update 1.4 is now in a beta form on Steam and will be coming to consoles once it's been suitably tested. As announced by Bethesda the patch doesn't just come with a slew of bug fixes - you're in luck if your Pip-Boy menu has been going invisible mid swim - but also a stack of extra settlement items.

If your Sanctuary Hills needs some Super Mutant 'clutter' such as meat totems, meat bags or a meat cart then this is the perfect update. Plus, who needs Ikea - Apokalipsk? - when you can get Raider clutter, abstract and portrait paintings, a variety of new signs and even more metal and wood door options. Mmm, doors. You can see the full list of bug fixes here.

Secondly, it also appears that we're getting closer to mod support on consoles. In an interview with Game Informer creative director Todd Howard has outlined the teams release aims. "Our goal [for mod release] is between the first two DLCs. It’ll go up at that time on PC," he said. "In April. All of that stuff will go up on PC. People are beta testing it. There’ll be a lag on consoles. We want to get it up on PC and have it work. It’ll probably be a good month before it hits Xbox One, and another month for PlayStation 4." Bring on the ridiculous weapon and superhero mods.
