"Fallout 4," the popular RPG game from Bethesda, has released a new update 1.7 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The new update, however, is currently available only on PC.

Bethesda has assured PS4 and Xbox One version users that they too will receive the game in the "coming weeks."

The game introduces certain new features, like Nuka-World support, store art type for Workshop settlements and ability to delete Add Ons without the requirement of a full uninstall for PS4.

One feature that has players overjoyed is that the update will make it easier to kill Marcy Long, one of the most despised characters in the game.
