Fallout 4 Player Achieves Stunning Graphics Overhaul with Mods

Despite Bethesda's recent "next-gen changes" for Fallout 4, which has been plagued by issues and broken mods, a dedicated player has taken matters into their own hands. Using mods, the player has successfully overhauled the game's graphics, achieving stunning results.

The "next-gen update" for Fallout 4 has been met with frustration from the gaming community due to various issues, including broken mods and poor implementation of quality-of-life features. Players on PC have resorted to rolling back the update to play a more stable version of the game with functional mods.

Bethesda has promised a new patch for Fallout 4, set to release on May 13, which will include new graphics and performance options, as well as "fixes and improvements." The upcoming patch will be available on all platforms, including Xbox and PC, but its compatibility with PlayStation is uncertain.

In a Twitter post on May 10, Bethesda Game Studios announced, "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!"

The "next-gen update" has caused issues such as players falling through the floor at Charleston Condo, VATS problems, and a broken "When Pigs Fly" quest on Xbox. The upcoming patch aims to address these pain points, but players remain apprehensive about potential new issues.

Despite the problematic launch of Fallout 4's Next-Gen Update last month, the game is enjoying renewed success. It has seen a boost to peak concurrent player numbers on Steam (125,344 in the last 24 hours) and increased sales in the UK. The update's timing likely aimed to coincide with the release of Amazon's successful Fallout show, which has become Prime Video's second most-watched show ever.
