Fallout 4 Releases Next-Gen Update 2


  • Bethesda releases Fallout 4 next-gen update 2, offering performance options and bug fixes.
  • Players can now control graphic fidelity and frame rate targets on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
  • Bug fixes include stability improvements, visual issues, and fixes for Creation Club menu.

Fallout 4 has had another update as Bethesda Game Studios releases next-gen update 2, bringing upgraded performance options, bug fixes, and greater control.

The American video game developer released the next-gen update 2 on Monday (May 13) and shared the news through a company blog post.

Fallout 4 is an open-world action role-playing game set in a post-apocalyptic world that has been shattered by nuclear war. It was brought out in 2015 and combines elements of combat, exploration, and storytelling.

Many of the new highlights have been brought on by player feedback, including the ability to control graphic fidelity and performance which has now been implemented. This is tailored towards PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S users.

While the team behind the Fallout franchise say you should still run the game with the default settings, you can “change your options to better fit your playstyle and display.”

Fans of Fallout 4 can choose between different frame rate targets of 30, 40 and the default 60 frames per second.

Players can now choose between visuals and performance (which is the current default) too with the newly-released prioritization option.

The developer says: “If you choose Frame Rate Target of 60, we recommend selecting Performance. Both modes may adjust internal resolution dynamically when scenes or action get heavier.”

Bug fixes are featured in the next-gen update 2 as well, with general stability seeing an improvement alongside the visual issue with certain image spaces.
