Well, out of nowhere Bethesda has announced a free update for Fallout 4, bringing the 2015 RPG onto Xbox Series X and S as a native current-gen title. The team hasn't provided much detail on what to expect, but some key improvements have been revealed for the game's 2023 release.
First up, the Xbox Series X|S version will contain "performance mode features for high frame rates" along with "quality features for 4K resolution gameplay"; these seem to be the two big reasons behind the upgrade. Bethesda says the port will also introduce various bug fixes, along with some bonus 'Creation Club' content.
"Prepare for the future: A next-gen update is coming to Fallout 4! Coming in 2023, this free update will be available for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and Windows PC systems, including performance mode features for high frame rates, quality features for 4K resolution gameplay, bug fixes and even bonus Creation Club content!"
We're a bit taken aback by this announcement to be honest, especially as it's hidden in a general Fallout anniversary post that's mostly focused on Fallout 76. The game also supports FPS Boost on the Xbox side of things, so higher performance is already featured on Series X and S!
Still, the resolution boost will be a welcome addition, along with whatever else the team delivers with the upgrade in 2023. We didn't expect any Fallout 4 news today, but here we are!
