Bethesda has announced that Fallout 4 will be coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S next year with an official next-gen update.
As part of Fallout’s 25th anniversary celebrations, Bethesda published a blog post announcing the long-awaited free update, which will also be coming to PC.
Eight years after Fallout 4 was originally released, the update includes a performance mode that enables higher framerates, a quality mode for 4K graphics, as well as bug fixes and more Creation Club content (Bethesda’s official mod support).
The developer hasn’t given a specific release date or window for Fallout 4’s next-gen update, nor a full list of features, but it will likely also include console-specific upgrades like the use of PlayStation 5’s haptic feedback.
It might be the only “new” Fallout update for a while, at least officially, as Fallout 5 is likely years away given that Bethesda won’t release it until after Elder Scrolls 6, which in turn comes after 2023’s Starfield.
However, the modding community is at work as Fallout 4’s LC major mod, Fallout London, is set to release in 2023. In our 9/10 review of the base game, IGN said, “An outstanding world, great crafting system, strong story and characters, and more bring Fallout 4 a glowing endorsement.”
