Fallout 4 Survival Mode out now on PC, coming to consoles next week0 Comments
As a game set in a post-apocalyptic future, Fallout 4 isn't exactly light on difficulty. Still, there are plenty of players out there who would prefer a more harrowing experience — something more akin to being helpless and alone and surrounded by vagabonds out to spill blood. Well, that's exactly what Bethesda has planned with the game's new Survival Mode, and it's something that users should be able to check out soon.
The most recent update to Fallout 4, version 1.5, has moved out of beta and is available now for all Steam users, which means PC players will now be able to check out the new ultra-difficult gameplay mode. Bethesda have also announced that the patch should be landing on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 sometime next week, though no specific date was given.
The Survival Mode changes up the traditional gameplay in a number of ways: primarily, it eliminates the option for fast travel and allows saving only while sleeping. Of course, it also comes with the usual increases in difficulty — players can expect to take more damage and have increased fatigue, among other things.
The update is more than just a Survival Mode, including several new fixes and improvements, many of which center around bugs introduced with the Automotron DLC. Bethesda are also working on bringing PC mods to console versions of the game, and are estimating that they should be hitting consoles later this summer.
