While the Fallout 4 expansion, Far Harbor, is full of all sorts of nasty, crawly critters, it turns out that not all of those “bugs” are intentional. Some gamers are reporting issues with the DLC and, according to a recent update, Bethesda is hard at work finding a solution.
It’s always nice to see a developer openly admit that their game is having some issues and, more importantly, that they are working to fix them. That’s what happened recently when folks expressed concern over some problems with Fallout 4’s water-tastic expansion, Far Harbor.
Enough people reported issues to get Bethesda’s attention, so they recently updated the Fallout 4 official blog with a direct response.
We made optimizations based on the Far Harbor beta feedback, but understand some people are experiencing issues. We are actively working on more improvements. As we have news and information, we’ll update this post. Thank you for playing Fallout 4.
In other words, if you’ve been unlucky enough to experience some issues battling massive crabs in the Far Harbor expansion, you’ll probably want to stay tuned to that original post for updates on when a patch is expected to squash all of the remaining bugs.
If you’ve been playing said content, then you’ve likely noticed that the Far Harbor region is full of heavy fog to help create a creepy sci-fi atmosphere. Fans are chiming in saying that the fog is likely causing the issues, as all of those extra weather details seem to be making the frame rate dip drastically.
If you haven’t picked up Far Harbor just yet, then you might want to give Bethesda a few days to work under the hood and see if they can get everything ship-shape. After that, you’d be doing yourself a disservice to skip out on this trip to Maine where the aquatic wildlife is big enough to terrify even the most diehard of seafood fans. Like with most Fallout DLC, you can expect all sorts of new story missions, along with new faction quests to tackle, dungeons to uncover and monsters to pump full of lead. And did I mention the horrifyingly massive crabs?
If your interest is piqued, the Fallout 4 season pass will set you back $50 and comes with everything that’s launched for the game post-release, as well as all upcoming additions to the game. If you’d rather dive into Far Harbor piece meal, you can snag it for just $25.
And don’t forget to let us know how Far Harbor is treating you in the comments section below. Are you having fun traipsing through the murky depths of this new content or are you one of those folks having troubles with the expansion?
