I'm seeing a fair bit of gaming news today. Apologies if it's clogging up all the politics and/or quiz posts

Fallout 4 is about to get a big new update.

Update 1.9 comes out next week for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On PS4 it adds support for the PS4 Pro, which means it gets enhanced lighting and graphics features including a native 1440p resolution, enhanced draw distance for trees, grass, objects and NPCs, and enhanced godray effects.

Also next week, Bethesda will release a high-resolution texture pack for the PC version of Fallout 4. "Consider this free download a love letter to our amazing PC fans that have supported us," Bethesda said in a post on its blog, "not just with Fallout 4, but across multiple decades and games."

To use the high-res pack you need an additional 58GB of space on your PC, as well as a system that meets or exceeds the recommended specs below:

Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Intel Core i7-5820K or better
GTX 1080 8GB/AMD Radeon RX 490 8GB
8GB+ Ram
There's a new update planned for Skyrim Special Edition, too. Bethesda said both Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition will get new features to mod content, and it will talk about those next week.

I've been a fan of Bethesda since Daggerfall and of the Fallout franchise perhaps even longer but the fact is a turd in a dress is still a turd.

I agree , love all the older stuff but fallout 4 and skyrim were both boring and no amount of high res texture will change the dull quest lines and constant mountains to glitch up

Same thing on the Bethesda … Same thing on the Bethesda site:https://bethesda.net/en/article/52I2HyPCAowWG2ye8MKGU2/fallout-4-free-updates-high-resolution-texture-pack-and-ps4-pro-supportBet it's still buggy



I don't think I encountered any. That said, I don't think I played it long enough to do so. I just could not get into it at all

58gb of textures? Crikey

I didn't play it nearly as much as I thought I would either But it's nice it got a Pro update anyway, something else to test it with.

I played pretty much the whole time as a straightforward FPS, hardly used VATS at all, and tbh I really enjoyed it. I must have played the best part of 100 hours...texture pack sounds great, but tbh I don't want to get drawn back to it again, too many other games and not enough time to play them! Nice to know it will be available if I change my mind tho :-)

I wish they would announce a release date for Fallout 4 with all DLC.
