For those still trekking the wastelands of Boston in 2287, Bethesda’s just rolled out patch 1.16 for Fallout 4.

Announced via Twitter post, and available on Xbox One first (although quickly uploaded onto the PS4), the update adds a new ExitSave feature, which causes the game to create a temporary save file when you exit to the main menu, a handy feature for players that tend to forget to save when exiting the game.

The update already released on PC version of Fallout on the fifth of July, but no announcement date was set for when it would come to consoles.

Check out the full patch notes just below:
