Fallout 4 Is Getting An Update Today With New Graphics And Performance Options

Along with "further fixes and improvements."

After only just receiving a major update which introduced native PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game along with a host of new features, Fallout 4 is getting another, smaller patch over the next day or so which will go some way to fixing up issues introduced in the new version and reportedly also offer up some new visual settings.

In lieu of a full patch notes as of yet, the short announcement, which Bethesda Game Studios posted to its official X account, simply says:

“On Monday, May 13 we will be updating Fallout 4 on all platforms.

“This update will include new options for graphics and performance settings as well as further fixes and improvements.

“Thanks for your continued feedback and support!”

Some of the bigger criticism of the new update have come from PC players who have had to deal with broken mods, Steam Deck support issues, shoddy ultrawide implementation and more, so hopefully this new patch addresses a lot of those.

It’s unclear what will be changing on the console side, and if that promise of “new options for graphics and performance” will apply to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S players, but it would be great to see a finer level of control added in a similar fashion to Starfield’s upcoming major update, which also launches this week and will allow console players to independently toggle options for better visuals and higher framerate targets.

Fallout 4’s current-gen upgrade didn’t exactly set the world on fire in the way many might have hoped when it dropped last month, adding some new basic visual options on console for increased resolution and/or performance without drastically overhauling anything. It was also initially not made available to those who originally sourced the game via the now-defunct PlayStation Plus Collection, an issue which has since been rectified.
