New Fallout 76 Patch 1.2.7 for PC/PS4/XO Released Ahead of Wastelanders Update; Addresses Various Crashing Issues on All Platforms
Bethesda has rolled out Fallout 76 patch 1.2.7 across all platforms, which packs stability and performance improvements alongside general bug fixes.
The new patch is a minor one ahead of the upcoming major Wastelanders update. While not a major patch, it weighs in at roughly 6GB on consoles and under 1GB on PC. Among various general bug fixes, the patch aims to address several crashing issues on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
“We’re releasing a small update for Fallout 76 in order to make some behind-the-scenes preparations for the upcoming Wastelanders update”, Bethesda writes. “Like our previous patch in January, we’re also fixing a few bugs that were safe to implement without disrupting our work on Wastelanders.”
We’ve included the release notes for Fallout 76 patch 1.2.7 down below:
