All Fallout 4 updates (opens in new tab) will be released as an optional beta for PC players first. After that a final version will roll out for all PC players, and then the final version will drop onto consoles. Bethesda said it plans to push out more frequent, smaller updates for Fallout 4 than it did for Skyrim and Fallout 3, and you can expect a good deal of free new stuff to arrive aside from the paid Season Pass (opens in new tab).

Speaking of which, it doesn't look like there's much new stuff waiting in Update 1.2. But it's tough to complain about a more stable game that doesn't trap you in front of computer terminals. Here are Bethesda's patch notes:

New Features
- Number pad keys can now be used for remapping (PC)
- Remapping Activate now works on Quick Container (PC)

- General memory and stability improvements
- Performance improvements inside the Corvega Assembly Plant
- Optimizations to skinned decal rendering
- Fixed issue with player becoming stuck in terminals
- Fixed issue where equipped weapons become locked after completing Reunions
- Fixed issue with "When Freedom Calls" where the quest would not complete
- During "Confidence Man" fixed issue where player's health would continuously regenerate
- Fixed crash related to jumping into water and reloading saved games
- Fixed issue where Launcher would not save God Rays Quality setting properly (PC)
