Bethesda: Patches Coming for Fallout: New Vegas

by Brian Leahy, Oct 20, 2010 11:00am PDT

For those experiencing bugs and other issues with Fallout: New Vegas, help is on the way.Bethesda's Pete Hines tells Kotaku that the company is "currently working on releasing patches/updates as quickly as possible for Fallout: New Vegas, for all platforms."

One such bug, which leads to some weird animation with the very first character you encounter in the game, is particularly amusing. It has been documented in a YouTube video, which can be found below.

The animation bug seen above was said to have been squashed, pre-release, by producer Jason Bergman. If you're on the PC version, try re-verifying your game files through Steam, which may fix the issue.

Until the patch hits, let us know what bugs or issues you're facing with Fallout: New Vegas. I started playing it last night on PC and thankfully, haven't hit anything that affected my gameplay experience yet.

  • worst thing i had so far on the 360 was a no name NPC stuck inside the bar in goodsprings trying to walk. i've heard that there is worse like lockups and crashes but i'm only a couple hours in.

    worst thing on the PC version has been my gf losing all of her saves. she ended up getting em back but quicksave and autosave are constantly being overwritten by old saves from hours and hours back in gameplay

    hope they get these fixes out soon. i would assume that they had to be working on them since the game went gold but it's obsidian so they probably thought the game was fine.
