Fallout: New Vegas Patch 1.3 – Update Brings Huge List of Changes

By Posted 26 Apr 2011, 23:18

If you play Fallout: New Vegas on your PC you may have noticed that a new update was recently rolled out via Steam, we now have a full breakdown of changes that patch 1.3 brings and believe me there are a lot to get through.

Rather than list all of the changes we will just point you to the full breakdown, if you head over to SteamPowered.com you can see exactly what will have changed once the patch has been installed.

There are lots of changes to guns, explosives, energy weapons, perks and melee weapons, apparently all SMGs, the Assault Carbine and LMG have increased accuracy, also the SMG now has increased mag capacity and pretty much all explosives will see increased damaged and radius.

Patch 1.2 for Fallout: New Vegas was released back in early December therefore patch 1.3 has been a long time coming, many believe that a lot of changes have been rolled out to prepare New Vegas for Honest Hearts DLC, perhaps we will hear a release date for this downloadable-content pretty soon.

Check out the full list of changes for yourself and let us know what you think about Obsidian Entertainment‘s refinements, have they missed anything? Have the changed ruined certain aspects of the game? Let us know in the comments section below.

    Here's a good one. On the PS3 it came as patch 1.5, and I started a new game after downloading. The pre-order dlc that I got used to give me the weathered 10mm pistol, now it gives me. . . 14 sticks of dynamite. It's kind of odd and not game-breaking, but I wonder what else is screwed up by this patch.

    why do they bother, these games are all just a money making scam now-you pay over 150$$ after the mods, what the hell is wrong with these companys? Not to mention New Vegas sucked, it can't even call itself a fallout game, it's just another shooter.
