Fallout 4 Current Gen Update Adds Quality, 60fps Modes on PS5/XSX, PC Also Getting Upgrades

The Fallout Amazon TV series debuted last night, and to follow up on the hype, Bethesda will be releasing a long-awaited next/current-gen update for Fallout 4. On PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, that means players will now have access to both a Quality mode and a 60fps Performance mode. What resolution we can expect hasn’t been specified – guess we’ll have to wait for Digital Foundry to weigh in on that. Bethesda is also promising “stability improvements, login, and quest fixes” on consoles.

Ah, but don’t feel left out, PC players! A Fallout 4 update is coming for you too, which will include widescreen support, Steam Deck verification, and “stability, mods, quest, and bug fixes.” The game has also been added to GeForce Now and will be coming to the Epic Games Store if you’re the rare EGS loyalist.

In addition to the updates, some extra free Creating Kit goodies are coming, including…

Enclave Remnants

Enclave Remnants brings the Pre-War cabal, The Enclave, into the Fallout 4 storyline. In this new quest, “Echoes of the Past,” can you stop The Enclave from spreading their dangerous ideology and gaining a foothold in the Commonwealth? Along with workshop items and the Enclave Colonel uniform, we are including the following previously released Creation Club content:

  • Enclave Weapon Skins
  • Enclave Armor Skins
  • Tesla Cannon
  • Hellfire Power Armor
  • X-02 Power Armor
  • Heavy Incinerator

Makeshift Weapon Pack

Ever thought a piggy bank would make a great weapon in a pinch? This weapon pack includes a variety of unconventional objects that have been transformed into deadly weapons, such as: a baseball launcher, a nail gun and a piggy bank.

Halloween Workshop

Leftover from an ill-fated Halloween party, thrown by the New England Technocrat Society, these 38 new Halloween decorations include witches, cauldrons, ghouls and more! Decorate for Halloween or make your settlements spooky all year round!

I know it wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I quite enjoyed Fallout 4, and I think I might take a spin around its irradiated world again on PS5 now that it’s been properly updated.

Fallout 4 can be played on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and Xbox Series X/S and PS5 via backward compatibility. The proper next-gen console versions and PC update will arrive on April 25.
