PS4 Pro support coming to Fallout 4 next week
Bethesda announced on their website today that Fallout 4 will receive a patch implementing PS4 Pro support next week. We think that's pretty cool. The biggest change with this update will be support for native 1440p resolution, alongside increased draw distance for trees, grass, objects and NPCs as well as better godray effects. A nice little surprise for those still trekking though the Commonwealth, building up their settlements or messing around within the game's modding scene.
PC players may have already been playing at resolutions above 1080p, but also coming next week is a High-Resolution Texture Pack for those surviving the post-apocalyptic wasteland on Steam. The specific details on the pack are thin, but the recommended specifications given alongside it are pretty beefy:
Recommended PC Specs
Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Intel Core i7-5820K or better
GTX 1080 8GB/AMD Radeon RX 490 8GB
If you've got a PC that can handle that, it will be a free download to try out. Note that Besthesda says you will need an additional 58 GB of hard drive space. It's not exactly clear whether this is including the space taken by the base game, but I'm suspecting it is. In any case, clear some room in that digital fridge.
