Patch 1.1.1.0 Coming Soon <Not the best Choice Trophy Fix>

7 posts in this topic

After doing 2.5 playthroughs of this I honestly thought it was bug free (at least from my console experience). I haven't had a single issue apart from the occasional texture pop-in, one of the smoothest games of this type I've ever played in all honesty. Seems like this game  Really great to see they are fixing things though.

 

I'm not really taking part in the whole Fallout 76 vs Outer Worlds debate because I think that the Outer Worlds should be regarded for it's own merits, rather than a tool to tear Fallout 76 down. But I did find it interesting that the first Outer Worlds patch notes contained 6 items and this was the first bug fix patch notes for Fallout 76:

I was so impressed with how bug free Outer Worlds was...I think it maybe the first game I played this year that didn't crash at all for me!

 

I know the loading screens were tediously long, but I'd rather have that than a buggy mess that crashes frequently.

 

It's such a shame that we probably won't see any sequels on Playstation.

I have had it crash once in about 30 hours of play time, so it’s not entirely error free. That’s still amazing though given comparable games in the genre.

Thank god they’re fixing the bug where the game thinks your companions are dead. I’m going to have to do a 3rd playthrough since I failed a companion gayest due to them supposedly being dead on the easiest difficulty.

Yeah, this is the only bug I've had my entire playthrough, and I've been putting off making too much progress until it's fixed. Very glad it's almost here. (Also very fortunate that I noticed the quest had fallen under Botched soon enough to load a save from just before speaking to Parvati)
