Fallout 4’s latest update teaches Codsworth a bunch of new names

The latest patch for Fallout 4 is now available on PC, and your name could be part of it.

By downloading the update you will add 300 new names to Codsworth’s in-game library, which will be used to address the player while wandering the wasteland and during conversations.

It’s a cool little feature, and the fact that Bethesda is actively adding to it is even better. You can check if your name is included thanks to this handy post on Reddit.
