Fallout 4's Survival Mode enters beta on Steam next week

The wasteland's about to get hardcore

Fallout 4's revamped Survival Mode will be available in beta on Steam next week, Bethesda Game Studios announced. The company confirmed the news on Twitter, asking fans to "please stand by" for further details.

Players of the Windows PC version of Fallout 4 will receive the updated Survival Mode before those on consoles, vice president of marketing and PR Pete Hines tweeted. Following the beta period, it will launch in full on Steam and, later, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Bethesda said last month that it would be overhauling Fallout 4's highest difficulty level to include new features like disease and other challenges. Following that announcement, players found and shared more information as to what the new Survival Mode entails on the game's subreddit.

Fallout 4's first expansion pack launched today. The Automatron add-on is available to players across all versions of the game and is available with or without the season pass.
