Fallout 4 Dev Rolls Back Latest Update Due to Modding Issues

It was only a couple of days ago that Fallout 4 received a new update. Patch 1.7.19 introduced minor fixes to the game’s expansion packs; fixing bugs associated with quests and items.

Bethesda Softworks has now issued a full recall of the update, rolling the game back to the previous patch. According to the developer, the latest update broke the Fallout 4 Script Extender. Hence, birthing technical issues with the modding aspect of the game.

Patch 1.7.19 is now returning to the workshop until the developers can find a solution to the modding problems. The announcement does not clarify as to when the developer is going to release a hotfix. Provided that Bethesda can identify the root cause, we could see a release as soon as this week.

“We are working to resolve the issue quickly and we may roll back the 1.7.19 update temporarily until we can get a fix tested and deployed,” the developer assures the Fallout 4 player-base. “Thanks for your patience.”

In news related to Fallout 4 modding, Bethesda Softwork offered an update last month to the long-delayed modding support for the PlayStation 4 version. Sony is denying approval and the reason that modding is still not part of Fallout 4 on PS4. The developer has seemingly given up in trying to convince Sony. As a result the modding aspect of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition has also been placed on a hiatus for PlayStation 4.

Fallout 4 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, alongside a ton of expansion and add-on content. The Xbox One and PC platforms are enjoying the modding workshop for the post-apocalyptic title. It’s saddening news for the PlayStation 4 community.
