Yesterday, Bethesda released its highly anticipated sequel, Fallout: New Vegas to the public after gamers had waited months for it. While the game is exactly what everyone had hoped for, it’s also not without the flaws that naturally come with a title of this magnitude. In New Vegas you can find everything from exorcism heads to crazy freezes at the most inopportune time.
Thankfully, Bethesda has acknowledged the issues quickly and has already started fixing the glitches at hand. Apparently, there was a patched released for the PC version of the game a bit earlier, thus we expect a console release to take place within the next week as well. Speaking through an official press release for the game, a Bethesda representative assured users that the company was aware of the issue and working on it.
“We are currently working on releasing patches and updates as quickly as possible for Fallout: New Vegas for all platforms … announcements regarding the patches are forthcoming.”
It’s great to know the game should be running smoothly shortly, but I think it’s getting a little out of hand with the amount of titles that need post-patch release this generation. It’s almost starting to feel like developers are skipping an integral part of testing in order to meet deadlines. Hopefully that isn’t the case though.
