Fallout 76 UPDATE 1.02 patch notes: Huge 47GB patch makes major changes on PS4, Xbox One

Fallout 76 has been given a monster new update on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The huge new Fallout 76 update weighs in at a whopping 47GB on PS4, so don’t expect to be playing online anytime soon.

Bethesda confirmed the news on Twitter, telling fans to stay tuned for fresh updates.

“We’ve brought #Fallout76 offline for scheduled maintenance,” reads a Bethesda tweet. “During this time you will be unable to log into or play Fallout 76. Please stay tuned for updates!”

While the size of the update isn’t ideal, fans will be happy to hear that it solves some of the game’s biggest problems.

This includes a fix for freezing and stuttering issues, plus bug fixes and stability improvements.

The patch notes seem unusually sparse for an update of this size, but you can check them out below.
