Fallout: New Vegas Patch on the Way?


Anyone who has played Fallout: New Vegas over the last two days probably knows by now that the game is kind of buggy. So far, I've been lucky and I've only had the game freeze up on me once during a loading screen while playing. Others, like GameZone's own Brian Rowe, haven't been as fortunate.

"Despite Obsidian’s fan-service, Fallout: New Vegas is a heaping pile of bugs," Brian writes in his review. "Common sights are characters falling through the world, single-digit framerates, frozen enemies, sound effects cutting out, and characters that change voices mid-conversation. I’ve had reputations reversed and weapons disappear from my inventory, only to go back to normal an hour later, and my two companions are currently stuck inside a room in New Vegas. The latter might be for the best anyway, as they kept shooting up the joint."

In a statement to gaming news site Gamasutra, Bethesda says it is working on releasing patches/updates as quickly as possible for all platforms, and that announcements regarding the patches are forthcoming.
