Fallout 4 PS5 and Xbox Series X Next-Gen Updates Arrive in 2023

Fallout 4 Next-Gen PS5 and Xbox Series X Arrives in 2023

Fallout 4 will look a bit different on the PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2023, thanks to an upcoming next-gen update. Bethesda announced it as part of its Fallout series 25th anniversary. A lot of the details about it are still vague, but the company did confirm that when it arrives, it will be a free update for people.

The announcement did bring up a few points players can look forward to for the game. Fallout 4 will get a performance mode after the update. Like such features in other games, it will mean higher frame rates and resolution quality. There will also be additional Creation Club items. In the original version of the game, people could purchase Credit packs to purchase additional content for the game. Bug fixes will also be a part of this patch.

The 25th anniversary update also included a nod to things happening in Fallout 76. People can take part in Spooky Scorched until November 8, 2022. This is the game’s Halloween event that involves trick-or-treating and opponents wearing costumes. People can also claim one free item per day in the Atomic Shop as part of an anniversary event. Those free gifts will be available October 25-November 8, 2022.

Fallout 4 is immediately available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Following its launch in 2015, Bethesda released story-based DLC like Automatron, Far Harbor, and Nuka-World, as well as additional add-ons like the Contraptions, Vault-Tec, and Wasteland Workshop sets. The Fallout 4 free next-gen update will arrive for the PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2023.
