Gamers have waited a long time for the Tuesday night release of “Fallout 4,” but now that it’s out, has it lived up to the massive expectations?  


“Fallout 4” quickly became a bestseller at many stores the night of the game’s release; unfortunately, the night didn’t go off without a hitch. After Tuesday’s “Fallout 4” launch, many gamers on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One reported a large variety of bugs, glitches, and crashes. “Fallout 4” developer Bethesda Softworks was forced to release a day one patch to try and resolve some of these issues.    



Some Xbox One gamers that preordered the game on or before Oct. 27, weren’t able to play “Fallout 4” at all because the wrong file was downloaded. Bethesda posted a fix to this problem, but many Xbox One players hoping to fire up the game had a disappointing night.  


Many of those that could open “Fallout 4” without any issues still faced problems with the gameplay itself. It’s been difficult for many to play the game when they are hit with a terrible frame rate, extremely long loading screens, gun glitches, and even a bug that traps the character in an elevator.



This isn’t the first time a Bethesda game has been released with a large amount of bugs and glitches. “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” had plenty of issues after its launch, but Bethesda worked hard at repairing the damage and their game became playable. Bethesda continues to fix the “Fallout 4” glitches, and hopefully more patches will be released in the coming days that resolve the many problems before their fans get fed up.
