To address the performance issues in Fallout 4’s Far Harbor expansion, Bethesda has released a new version of the DLC on the PlayStation Store, asking those affected to re-download it.

Here’s how to download the new version of Far Harbor:

  1. Confirm Fallout 4 is not running. Highlight Fallout 4 in your PS4 dashboard, press OPTIONS, and select CLOSE APPLICATION to ensure Fallout 4 is not running minimized.
  2. Select RELATED ITEMS. You’ll find this under the Fallout 4 icon in the PS4 dashboard.
  3. Select MY ADD-ONS.
  4. Navigate to the DOWNLOAD ARROW next to Far Harbor and select it.
  5. You should see a notice that Far Harbor has been Added to Downloads.
  6. Wait for the downloadable content to finish downloading and installing before starting Fallout 4.

If this doesn’t work, Bethesda says, “You can delete Fallout 4 (and all add-on content) and simply reinstall the game (and add-ons from scratch).”

This fix is currently only live in North America, with Bethesda promising more information “in the very near future” for Europe.

Update: Bethesda says it’s now available in Europe as well.

Have you tried the new version of Far Harbor? How does it perform?
