A new bug in Fallout 4 proves more problematic than Radscorpions

It appears as though a specific settlement quest in Fallout 4 contains a bug which immediately crashed the game, according to several users from the official Fallout 4 forums.

The game-breaking bug occurs during a settlement quest that asks players to head toward Monsignor Plaza. Unfortunately, the game crashes to the desktop upon doing this.

A post from one user stated “I have to go to Monsignor but every time I go there it crashes straight to the desktop without any error message, there isn’t one in the Event Viewer either.”

According to the research conducted by the aforementioned poster, this crash seems to be related to the progression of the game’s story. He states that it may be possible to avoid this, if players initiate the bugged quest earlier in the story than he had. This bug also seems to effect Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users as well.

So, have you experienced any game-breaking bugs during your time exploring Fallout 4’s Wasteland? If so, be sure to sound off in the comments section below and let us know what happened.
