The Wasteland Has Been Updated! More Shrubs Than Ever

Today saw the release of the Fallout 4 Update 1.3 on the PlayStation 4 with the Xbox One and PC versions being updated over the past week. And with the update comes a plethora of new features and fixes. But sadly, still no sign of the impending and much anticipated DLC.


The most noticeable part of the update is the massively improved draw distance on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. PC guys, don't complain as you can already change your draw distance settings! Check it out in this short clip.



Because the Duck is having a bit of a tantrum, have a link to the tweet/video! Ducks these days, aye?
