Fallout 4 will be receiving a new patch that is scheduled to arrive next week. The said patch will now feature a support for the enhanced gaming console from Sony called PS4 Pro, while PC players will get a hefty high-resolution texture pack that will boost the game's visuals extensively.
Based on the report from Polygon, Fallout 4 Update 1.9 on PS4 and PS4 Pro users will add native 1440p resolution, enhanced draw distance for grass, trees, objects and also possibly for NPCs. In addition, the update will also feature enhanced Godray effects. For those who are uninitiated, Godray effects are channels of light that come from clouds or trees.
The report mentions that the high resolution texture pack will require a massive 58 GB of hard drive space and brings its own set of suggested specifications. Meanwhile, Bethesda mentioned in a blog post that the Commonwealth will look better than ever if the player's system can handle the latest patch. Players are recommended to test out the patch once it arrives next week. In addition, they are given freedom to disable within the game's launcher menu if they are not comfortable with the update.
On the other hand, reports from Attack of the Fanboy revealed the recommended PC specs of Fallout 4's high-resolution texture pack. The update needs a system composed of Windows 7, 8 or 10 which requires the 64-bit version, Intel Core i7-5820K or better, GTX 1080 8GB or AMD Radeon RX 490 8GB and a RAM of 8GB or better.
Meanwhile, Bethesda also teased an upcoming update for the Remastered Edition of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. The future update is dedicated to arrive on all platforms which is expected to bring new features to Mod content. In addition, the developer said that they will reveal further details regarding the patch next week. Fallout 4 is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One.
