Also, you can build and mod your own custom robot companion. There are hundreds of mods, Bethesda said, as well as the new lightning chain gun.
Fallout 4 received a fair bit of criticism for its Survival Mode that made the game harder, but didn't factor in all the dangers that made the mode such a hit with hardcore New Vegas fans. That will be amended in a future update.

Fallout 4's hilarious headless glitch has been addressed on PC in the latest 1.3 beta update.

As detailed on Steam, it contains the following new features and fixes:
Fallout 4 players are using console commands and mods to uncover cool secrets about the post-apocalyptic role-playing game.
Fallout 4 base building isn't for me, despite some advanced tips from Eurogamer's Ian Higton. I've left Sanctuary a poor, dribbling mess of burnt-out houses and bare-bones streets. But Fallout 4 is base building for some people. These people.
Fallout 4 developer Bethesda has offered a cursory overview of its plans to fix the post-apocalyptic open-world game's myriad of glitches.
"It's true that the freedom our games offer you can lead to unintentional consequences that are sometimes bad, when the game combines too many unexpected elements at once," the developer stated on its official blog. "We're happy that Fallout 4 is our most robust and solid release ever, and we'd like to thank our amazing QA staff who worked as hard as anyone to break the game so we could fix it during development. But a hundred testers will never replicate the many millions playing the game now, and we're hard at work addressing the top issues."
"Our process for updating the game will include releasing a beta patch on Steam, followed by full release on PC, then release on the consoles," Bethesda explained. "This process has worked well for us in the past and allows us to get more fixes out faster."
Fallout 4's been out for over a week now, and so I imagine more than a few of you have dabbled in the post-apocalyptic role-playing game's base building feature.

There's no surprises as to this week's UK chart number one: Fallout 4 has claimed the crown with ease - no need to Pip-boy anyone to the post.
Fallout 4's launch sales were 213 per cent higher than 2010's Fallout: New Vegas, UK numbers company Chart-Track reported.

Bethesda has trumpeted the launch of Fallout 4 - but failed to specify how many copies it's sold.
What it did say is the post-apocalyptic role-playing game launched with a whopping 12m copies shipped worldwide to meet day-one demand. That represents a huge $750m in revenue.
That figure, though, doesn't represent actual sales of the game to customers. But given Bethesda was confident enough to set aside 12m units for launch, there's no doubt Fallout 4 sold extremely well.
Fallout 4 players have discovered a way to get as many bottle caps - the in-game currency - as they want.

Here's the statement in full:
Fallout 4 contains a hidden mini-game about a half-hour into the campaign that pays homage to an old arcade classic.
Fallout 4 doesn't go on sale until midnight tonight, but you can already pay a high price for the £99 Pip-Boy Edition on eBay.
Those with an Xbox One digital pre-order for Fallout 4 may need to redownload the game before being able to play.
UPDATE 9/11/15 10.45am: Less than 24 hours from launch and some GAME customers are still waiting to hear if they will receive their £99 Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition, following the retailer's order errors last week.
Many GAME customers were notified via email early last Friday morning that their payment method had failed for their Pip-Boy Edition orders - but it was actually GAME's system at fault.
A second email was then sent to customers, after many had spent hours on the phone to customer service trying to find out what had happened. This new message, distributed around 6pm, explained that customers still wishing to keep their order would need to reply and provide a phone number for GAME to contact them over the weekend.

It's Friday! What does that mean? It means we bring you word that there's real life Fallout Nuka-Cola Quantum.

Fallout 4 has slightly strange but achievable system requirements on PC, and occupies between 28-35GB hard-drive space on consoles. I say "slightly strange" as the recommended specs ask for a powerful processor and graphics card but are relatively easy on the RAM. Does it really need all that processing power? We'll see, I suppose!
