Bethesda just released Survival Mode for the latest installment of the Fallout franchise, Fallout 4. The new mode is still in beta but Steam users can already download and test it out, with consoles receiving the update sometime in May.

With the latest update, Bethesda brought a lot of aspects to the new mode that makes it difficult for players to survive. These new features include more limitations, increased lethality, more enemies, and much more.

A particular highlight of the new Survival mode is the ability to save the game only when you go to sleep — manual, auto and quick saves are removed. In addition, fast travel is disabled, you deal more damage while the main charater takes more damage from opponents, and fatigue, hunger, illness, and thirst are all added considerations. You can check out the complete list of new features at Bethesda’s website.

If you already purchased Fallout 4 on Steam, you’ll be able to test the beta version of the new Survival Mode for free. Just go to your Steam Library and check for updates for Fallout 4.

This is the second addition to Fallout 4 after the first DLC of the game, Automatron, which was released in March. Unlike the new Survival Mode, which is available for free to all Steam users who purchased the original game, Automatron will cost you $9.99. Both additions are also available in the Fallout 4 Season Pass which can be purchased for $49.99.

As we said, the new Survival Mode has yet to arrive on consoles, and we don’t know the exact release date. But as soon as it lands on Xbox One and PS4, users of these platforms will also be able to try the beta version for free.

If you already installed and played the new Fallout 4 Survival Mode, let us know about your impressions in the comments.
