Bethesda is still toiling away at Fallout 4 VR behind the scenes, and it’s got another update out in beta this week with yet more fixes.
Rather than add new features, this latest update continues to address the various performance hitches players have been encountering with the HTC Vive exclusive since launch late last year.
There are a large number of crash fixes as well as some solutions to rendering issues. We’ve included the full changelog below.
To access the update ahead of its full rollout (which doesn’t yet have a date) you’ll need to right click on the game on your Steam Library, click Properties, head to the Betas tab and then select Update 126.96.36.199 from a drop-down menu. Don’t expect this to be the last update you see for the game; hopefully we’ll hear more about it arriving on other platforms as the year goes on.
