Fallout 4’s PS5 Update Is Available To PlayStation Plus Collection Owners After All


When Fallout 4’s fresh PS5 and Xbox Series X|S update arrived last week, those who had acquired the game on PS5 via a PlayStation Plus Extra subscription were left momentarily confused about not being able to upgrade their versions of the game for free. Bethesda quickly shouted those people out and sorted things to make it available, but curiously left out another portion of players who had the PS4 game but no option to upgrade.

While the company specifically said it was fixing the problem for PlayStation Plus Extra members, it had seemingly missed the large number of people who got the game as part of the now-retired PlayStation Plus Collection – a boon of games that early PS5 adopters were able to claim as part of their subscription and hang onto indefinitely. Now, a few days later, Bethesda has once again come back with an update to say that it’s sorted that issue as well, and PlayStation Plus Collection owners should now be able to claim the free upgrade.

“Thanks for letting us know that some PS Plus subscribers have been unable to access the free next gen update of Fallout 4 on PlayStation,” Bethesda’s most recent post on the matter reads. “This issue has now been successfully resolved. Subscribers who have previously received Fallout 4 from the PlayStation Plus Collection should now be able to access the update as intended.”

The current-gen update for Fallout 4 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC brings with it new performance and visual modes on consoles, new Creation Club content packs and other tweaks and improvements. You can learn more about what’s included in the update right here.

With Fallout 5 still a long ways off, the whole world has seemingly turned back to the earlier games as Fallout fever takes hold. Audiences in Australia and New Zealand have had the same idea with the most recent charts from the Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (IGEA) showing that not one but four separate Fallout titles cracked the top five amongst the Top 10 charts in the week after the show launched.
