Fallout 4 is changing.

Sometimes, as games grow older, they begin to change and grow hair in strange places … or I think that’s what my health teacher said — I wasn’t paying attention.

Fallout 4’s 1.4 update is live on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and you can download it by booting up your console right now, according to publisher Bethesda. This patch will introduce a plethora of new items and decorations for your settlements. These include storefront signs and warning labels. Fallout 4’s town-building tool was one of its standout features, and these additions give people the chance to express themselves even more. An update like this is also a good way for Bethesda to get some lapsed players back into the game just as it prepares to begin launching downloadable content. Maintaining an engaged audience is crucial for studios trying to maximize the lifetime value of their audience.
