Fallout: New Vegas PC patch goes live

Console users will have to wait.

A patch for bug-infested Fallout: New Vegas has gone live, but only for the PC version.

The Version 1.1.1 update looks like what publisher Bethesda described as an "incremental" patch before the real deal arrives on all platforms at some point in the next few weeks.

Here's what it does:

  • Companions now show up as waypoints on the map
  • Companions will always fast travel with you, unless told to wait or sent away
  • Fix: DLC error/save corruption
  • Fix: Stuttering with water effects
  • Fix: Severe performance issues with DirectX
  • Fix: Controls temporarily disabled after reloading Cowboy Repeater while crouched
  • Fixed crash using the Euclid C-Finder while having the Heave Ho perk
  • Fix: Entering the strip after Debt Collector causes crash and autosave corruption
  • Fix: Using Mojave Express dropbox can cause DLC warnings
  • Fixed crash when buying duplicate caravan cards from a vendor in a single transaction
  • Crafting menu should filter valid (bright) recipes to the top of the list
  • Fix: Sitting down while looking down a weapon's ironsights leaves player control locked
  • Fix: If a companion is knocked unconscious with broken limbs they stay broken on respawn
  • Fix for varmint night scope effect persisting in kill cam
  • Fix for giving companions armor that adds STR does not increase their carry weight
  • Fix NPC Repair menu displays DAM as DPS
  • Having NPC repair service rifle with forged receiver decreases CND

Aside from all the glitches, Fallout: New Vegas turned out rather well. Eurogamer's Dan Whitehead awarded Obsidian's post-apocalyptic epic 9/10 last month.
