Fallout 4 update now available

Fallout 4 update now available

As promised, Bethesda released a new update for Fallout 4 on both PC and PS4 Pro. PC owners can now download the 58 GB texture pack, while PS4 ones can enjoy enhanced draw distance and better lighting effects up to 1440p. As we have lent the PS4 version, we can only show you some PC footage, but as you'll see, the difference isn't really obvious in 1080p. Of course, such a pack is especially intended to those who can run the game at very high resoilution, so we've added a few 4K screenshots we took ourselves. We're not sure we'll be able to record some 4K videos on PC, but we'll try if we can find the time.

Maybe before they make 58GB of textures they should work on a new engine that was not designed to run the 1980's pacman and then equipped with a million modernization hacks that don't make it any better

Haha is it me or the most obvious I would assume - texture for the gun looks so horrible :D Priorities went wrong way I suppose.

Agreed, Fallout 4 was never a particularly pretty game, this doesn't really change that imo.

Calling these 4k ready textures is laughable.

Actually just realised, the update launches for the 2 consoles later in the week. Apart from the PC textures and Pro enhancements, the only other updates are related to the Mod UI. It looks like that is all the Skyrim remastered patch will be applying too.
I guess with 1.9 and all the DLC out, that's it for Fallout 4 development. Full steam to TES VI Hammerfell then.

About the game


What's up?
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Games like Persona 5, Nier: Automata and Nioh should have been released on XB1. Nioh is a Dark Souls clone, the original Nier was on X360. And Persona 5 would sell well on XB1, since it's a great game (0 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Perhaps, but are JRPGs just not popular with XB1 owners or just because there's not many to choose from? I believe the latter is the most probable reason. (2 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's one thing to have the install base. but it's another to have enough people within it willing to buy your game. these japanese devs clearly don't feel it's worth the effort of porting the game. (2 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, RPCS3 allows you to play games downloaded from PSN, so you can legally buy games from PSN - like PS+ free games - and transfer them to your PC's HDD and play using RPCS3. (3 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: it depends if they think the market is there for it. which xbox owners tend to send out the impression it isn't. it's why we're not seeing a lost oddysey 3 or a blue dragon 4 being announced. (4 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Btw, RPCS3 - PlayStation 3 emulator - has been making immense progress during the past months. I'm mentioning it because Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, the 1st game, is completely playable. (6 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts doesn't make much sense since XB1 has a very large base, so making a XB1 port would be worth it financially wise. (9 minutes ago)
