'Fallout 4' 'Vault-Tec Workshop' and 1.7 game updates out; still no go for PS4 mod support


Bethesda’s “Vault-Tec Workshop” downloadable content (DLC) update for “Fallout 4” is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. While the DLC will automatically update on PC and Xbox One, PS4 gamers will have to go through a list of steps.

To update the DLC on PS4, players must first make sure the game isn’t running. To make sure the game is stopped and not running minimized, they simply have to highlight “Fallout 4” in the PS4 dashboard, press the “options” button, and then select “close application.” Afterward, they have to select “related items,” which is found below the “Fallout 4” icon, and then select “my add-ons.” Once inside, the player must go to the download arrow next to “Vault-Tec Workshop” and select it. Once that is done, the game will start downloading and installing the update.

If the steps above do not work, players are advised to delete “Fallout 4” and all add-on contents and reinstall the game. The update fixes many “Vault-Tec Workshop” issues, including non-player character (NPC) related bugs.

Bethesda has also announced that the “Fallout 4” 1.7 update is out for all platforms. Besides fixing a lot of issues and glitches, the update also provides support for Nuka-World, as well as a new store art type for settlements in “Vault-Tec Workshop.” Most importantly for PS4 players, the update allows them to delete add-ons without resorting to a full uninstall.

There are reports saying that the new update is still causing issues for players, especially with “Vault-Tec Workshop” and other “Fallout 4” DLCs and mods. These problems include texture issues, crashes, glitches, and lags. Hopefully, Bethesda will fix these soon.

In other “Fallout 4” news, PS4 players are still waiting for Bethesda to develop updates that can make the console support modifications (mods). Unfortunately, the company has not revealed anything new. Bethesda Vice President Pete Hines made a post recently saying that they still could not announce a release date until the mod support evaluations are done.
