Fallout 4 Survival Mode brings some new difficulties such as:

  • Survival adds additional challenges including no fast travel, saving only when you sleep, increased lethality, diseases, fatigue, danger and more
  • Characters set to Survival difficulty appear under their own Character Selection filter 
  • Survival difficulty characters are not backward compatible with the 1.4 version of Fallout 4. If you opt out of the Beta, do not use Survival character saved games

  • Log into Steam 
  • Right Click on Fallout 4 in your Library 
  • Select Settings and then hit Betas 
  • A drop down menu will appear, select Survival Beta Update and then OK 
  • Wait a few minutes and Fallout 4 should update 
  • When done, Fallout 4 should appear as Fallout 4 [Beta] in your Library
Fallout 4 Survival Mode Beta is now rolling out on PC through Steam, while Consoles are expected to get it sometime next month.
