Bethesda working to improve performance in Fallout 4: Far Harbor

The developer is aware that some players 'are experiencing issues' and is 'actively working on improvements.'


Noticing framerate hitches while playing Fallout 4: Far Harbor? You're not the only one. In a forum post, Bethesda staff assured players that the developer is working to plug holes.

"We made optimizations based on the Far Harbor beta feedback, but understand some people are experiencing issues. We are actively working on more improvements. As we have news and information, we'll update this post."

Bethesda's got several Fallout irons in the fire. In addition to smoothing out wrinkles in Far Harbor, there's more DLC for Fallout 4 coming this year. Once the steady drip of official expansions ends, players can take charge of keeping the game going by releasing mods on PCXbox One, and PS4.

"Thank you for playing Fallout 4," Bethesda wrote on the game's official forum.
