Bethesda have today announced that next week they’re releasing an High-Resolution Texture Pack for Fallout 4 on PC, as well as a PS4 Pro update, that is about to make the game a whole lot prettier, so I say perhaps it’s time Charlie and I went back in and took some more shots. Well, I would say that were it not for the fact the PC system requirements are way above what our rigs are capable of.
In order to properly run the new texture pack, Bethesda says you should make sure your PC “meets/exceeds” the following specs:
- Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
- Intel Core i7-5820K or better
- GTX 1080 8GB
- 8GB+ Ram
According to Kotaku, AMD card users are recommended to have a Radeon RX 490, a graphics card that isn’t even out yet. Oh, and you’ll also need an extra 58GB of hard drive space to store the update, which is not an insubstantial download.
Here’s a 4K screenshot from the High-Resolution Texture Pack for your viewing pleasure (open in a new window for the full effect):
The PS4 Pro update, also releasing next week, is adding native 1440p resolution support, enhanced draw distance for world objects and NPCs as well as better godrays effects.
So yeah, if you have a PS4 Pro or a PC from the gods (as well as the NBN to download that gigantic update) and have been considering jumping back in to Fallout 4, next week sounds like a good time.
