Fallout 4 will receive a free next-gen update in 2023, which will be available for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC, Bethesda has confirmed.
Seven years after the release of Fallout 4, Bethesda announced (opens in new tab) the update as part of its Fallout 25th Anniversary celebrations, revealing that the free update will introduce “performance mode features for high framerates, quality features for 4K resolution gameplay, bug fixes, and even bonus content from the Creation Club.” “.
This update will be available to those who own Fallout 4 on PS4, Xbox One, or PC, but it’s unclear whether Bethesda plans to release PS5 and Xbox Series X-specific versions of the post-apocalyptic RPG (TRG has contacted Bethesda for confirmation). ).
A sign of things to come?
This free, next-gen update for Fallout 4 is a welcome one as it will likely encourage new players to join, as well as encourage players like myself to venture back into the Commonwealth.
But this time around, wandering around post-apocalyptic Boston will likely be a smoother (and more engaging) experience than when I first did it in 2015. This is exciting for a few reasons, firstly because it makes for an even better, fantastical open world RPG. . And, most importantly, it can give us a taste of what to expect from the next Fallout 5.
Of course, Fallout 5 will be many years away, with Bethesda confirming to IGN (opens in new tab) in June that will start work on the next Fallout later The Elder Scrolls 6, but the Fallout 5 next-gen update will surely give us an idea of what a new Fallout game is on the latest hardware could looks.
Well, we hope so because, until the release of Fallout 5, that’s the closest we’ll get to a new Fallout game.
