Recognized as a cornerstone in gaming history, the Fallout franchise has been reignited not by a new entry, but a successful television adaptation available on Amazon Prime. This has spurred a resurgence of fans exploring its desolate landscapes, particularly in Fallout 4. For returning and new players alike, the arrival of an enhanced Fallout 4 version for next-generation consoles and PC is worth the wait.

The highly anticipated Fallout 4 upgrade for modern platforms had a delayed release, yet the renewed interest from the Amazon Prime show, which received a commendable 93% rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes and an 85% audience score, has made the wait more palatable. It ranks just behind HBO’s The Last of Us series in popularity.

As the Fallout player base swells, our suggestion is to revisit the celebrated fourth chapter following its next-gen update. Your patience will soon be rewarded.

When is the Fallout 4 Next-Gen Update Arriving?

The official launch date for the enhanced Fallout 4 version is April 25th, confirmed by Bethesda alongside a list of upgrades to expect.

Owners of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S can look forward to a free upgrade that includes:

  • Custom-tailored applications
  • Dual performance and visual quality options
  • Enhanced stability and bug corrections
  • Improved frame rates and visuals

If you have was the previous-generation consoles and own Fallout 4 for PS4 or Xbox One, expect a complimentary update that will bolster game stability and resolve a myriad of login and quest issues.

PC users will see the game become compatible with the Steam Deck, and across Steam, the Microsoft store, and GOG, the update promises:

  • Support for wider screen varieties
  • Improvements to the Creation Kit
  • Updates to various in-game quests
  • General stability, modding enhancements and bug fixes

Moreover, Fallout 4 will also make its debut on the Epic Games store.

What’s New in the Fallout 4 Next-Gen Update?

The update is not just technical improvements – players can also expect new content, specifically complimentary items from the Creation Club.

A fresh quest, Echoes of the Past, will be introduced, with Bethesda teasing a storyline about obstructing The Enclave’s scheme to secure a foothold in the Commonwealth.

Additional items such as Workshop assets and Enclave Colonel attire will be available, alongside these already popular Creation Club offerings:

  • Custom Enclave weaponry and armor designs
  • The mighty Tesla Cannon
  • Fiery Hellfire Power Armor
  • The imposing X-02 Power Armor
  • A potent Heavy Incinerator

Furthermore, players can look forward to:

Do-it-yourself weapon pack:

  • A whimsical baseball grenade launcher
  • An industrious nail gun
  • A cheeky piggy bank grenade

Halloween workshop pack:

  • Over three dozen spooky seasonal decorations
