If you're still hooked on Fallout 4 and roaming around the Commonwealth's post-apocalyptic scenario (or thinking of taking the first hit), there's good news for you: the wasteland will soon be a lot prettier. Bethesda has announced a couple free updates for Fallout 4, and the biggest one offers a graphics upgrade to the PC version of the game.
The official High-Resolution Texture Pack for Fallout 4 is coming next week, and it packs a whopping 58GB (yes, fifty-eight gigabytes) of textures to improve the game's looks. Bethesda didn't go into detail about exactly what portions of Fallout 4's scenarios received the most touch-ups, but given the update's massive size, we're placing our bets on "everything."
The update will be free, but being able to effectively play the game with it appplied might prove a little costly. Better sit down for this one. Bethesda is recommending that gamers have a Core i7-5820K CPU or better, a GeForce GTX 1080 8GB graphics card, and more than 8GB of RAM. While that last requirement is tame enough, the first two definitely aren't. At any rate, we expect the game to look positively stunning after the update. Heck, I might even get back into it myself.
