PlayStation 4 Pro Support For Fallout 4 Coming Next Week

Since the launch of Sony’s new PlayStation 4 Pro, many gaming titles have received a makeover to support the console. Ubisoft recently added PS4 Pro support to the Tom Clancy’s The Division. Bethesda has now confirmed in a blog post that its Fallout 4 would get the PS4 Pro support next week. Fallout 4 was released for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 in November 2015.

Fallout 4: PC users to get high-resolution texture pack

Bethesda said the next week’s patch will have a High-Resolution Texture Pack for the PC version of the title. The studio took more than a year to release the Fallout 4 high-resolution textures for PC gamers. By comparison, it had added high-resolution support in Skyrim in just three months.

Though the patches will be free of cost, the gaming studio pointed out that the update would take up 58GB of hard drive space. It has its own set of recommended specifications. For instance, Bethesda recommends at least 8GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, and Intel Core i7-5820K chipset or better.

The Commonwealth would look better than ever before if your system can handle it, said the company. Just give it a try, and then if you want to return to the original textures, simply disable them in the game’s launcher menu. Bethesda said the high-resolution texture pack for PC is a “love letter” to its amazing PC fans who have supported the studio through decades.

What will be new in PlayStation 4 Pro patch?

The gaming studio did not reveal how big the PlayStation 4 Pro update is going to be. It did mention that the Update 1.9 would add native 2,560 x 1,440 (or 1440p) resolution. It will also have enhanced draw distance. It means the objects, trees, and grass won’t just suddenly popup in the scene. Players will be able to see them from far away. The patch will also have enhanced Godray effects for the PS4 Pro. Godray is just another term for the light shafts breaking through the trees, clouds, and windows.

Bethesda hints at Skyrim Special Edition update

The developer also teased an update coming to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition on all platforms. Bethesda is expected to provide more details about the Skyrim Special Edition in another blog post. The studio is also known for Wayne Gretzky Hockey and its work with the Terminator franchise.

In a YouTube video posted earlier this month, Sony highlighted some of the exclusive titles coming to the PS4 this year. The upcoming titles would take full advantage of the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation VR’s capabilities. The titles set to release this year include Knack 2, Drawn to Death, Horizon: Zero Down, and Detroit: Become Human.
