The console versions of Fallout 4 have just been updated to add the game’s newly released Survival Mode, which adds an all new level of difficulty to the game that requires the player to sleep, eat, drink, and more.
The new difficulty level is harder than the hardest difficulty and also prevents players from being able to save whenever and wherever they want to, allowing them only to save at beds, which can be a huge problem in some areas where there are none, forcing players to play very, very skillfully and picking the right perks to ensure they survive the wasteland. Needless to say, life is pretty damn hard in survival mode.
The new mode is part of the game’s 1.5 update that came out on the PC last week via Steam. It’s been in beta since March and gamers on the console can now pick it up.
The next DLC for the title, Far Harbor, will release across all platforms on May 19 and will run without any conflicts with the Survival Mode turned on.
