Bethesda has announced that a new patch for Fallout: New Vegas will be making its way onto the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in the coming weeks.

The forum post, written by New Vegas’ Senior Producer, Jason Bergman, also made mention of the game’s next DLC which has been rumoured to be called Honest Hearts.

“…our next DLC release (announcement coming very soon, we promise) has been complete while we worked on getting a patch ready for you all. We didn’t want to just release more DLC before we had a patch that would improve the overall New Vegas experience,” read the post on Bethesda’s official forums.

“The good news is that we do have such a patch and it’s been handed off to the necessary platform owners. It should be released in the next couple of weeks on 360, PS3 and PC (can’t be more specific than that, I’m afraid, although PC will almost certainly get it first).”

Bergman also made mention of what to expect in the patch, however he didn’t provide a list of specific fixes:

“So what’s in that patch? First and foremost, optimizations and stability improvements. While there are bug fixes, our core focus was on improving stability and performance. We worked directly with first party platform owners to identify issues, and we have fixed a great deal of the crashes and lockups that people were experiencing. In addition, we scoured the forums and this patch includes weapon balance tweaks and other requested fixes.”
