Fallout 4 is scheduled to receive a major update next week that will finally add support for the burly PlayStation 4 Pro.
Owners of the recently released console upgrade have several reasons to be excited for. Firstly, Update 1.9 will give Fallout 4 the capability to run at a native 1440p resolution.
Secondly, there are numerous graphical enhancements inbound. This includes better lighting, improved draw distance for trees and foliage, improved textures, better character models, enhanced god-ray effects, and more.
At the same time, there is something exciting for the PC community as well. Bethesda Softworks will release a high-resolution texture pack next week for the PC version of Fallout 4.
“Consider this free download a love letter to our amazing PC fans that have supported us,” said the developer on the official blog, “not just with Fallout 4, but across multiple decades and games.”
The high-resolution texture pack will weigh in at a monstrous 58 GB. Additionally, the pack will require hefty system requirements to run properly. When you have made enough space on your hard drive to accomodate the texture pack, make sure you meet the following recommended specifications:
- Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
- Intel Core i7-5820K or better
- GTX 1080 8GB/AMD Radeon RX 490 8GB
- 8GB+ Ram
In other news, Bethesda Softworks is working on a similar update for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. According to the developer, both Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition will get new features and modding content in the upcoming weeks. More details on that have been promised for next week.
It’s been over two years since the release of Fallout 4. Despite its expansive open-world, many fans of the series are conflicted when it comes to the question of whether it is the best installment in the series. Much has to do with a rather bland story-telling aspect, excluding the number of bugs that are usually there in a Bethesda game.
Fallout 4 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
