Bethesda is shipping a couple updates to Fallout 4 next week. PC users are getting a 58 gig download option in the form of a HD high resolution texture pack. If this is anything like the Skyrim update, this should offer up an incredible visual upgrade to Fallout 4! Bethesda has released the recommended specs on the HD pack and i'm not sure I know someone that meets the minimum spec GPU wise.

  • Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
  • Intel Core i7-5820K or better

  • GTX 1080 8GB

  • 8GB+ Ram

Love to hear how well this texture pack works for you on your current rig so make sure to come back and let us know your specs and how it runs. Bethesda is also dropping an update to Fallout 4 on the PS4 Pro with native 1440p resolution, enhanced draw distance for trees, grass, objects and NPCs and enhanced Godray effects. This is a nice bonus PS4 Pro users might enjoy but I wonder how well this sits for people with the normal ol PS4? I wonder how PC-like consoles will get before the next generation or will we simply just make incremental upgrades to this current generation? As seen with Nintendos handhelds it's not a bad strategy and might turn out well for Sony and Microsoft.

Hahaha, 58gb and the best computer possible. I'll get right on that! :D

Seriously that's awesome of them for doing this but like you said, this is applicable to only the most elite, at least for now.

I installed the Skyrim HD texture pack and had to scale down the resolution to run and it seemed... mostly OK even if my specs were way under the line. Hoping we can do that here...

If I have 60 gigs free at the end of my billing cycle I'll give it a shot.

So today's the last day of my billing cycle and I had like 200 gigs free somehow.

Amazingly, my computer handles this just fine. The Steam page lists the bullet points you listed up top as the *minimum* requirements, but I don't come near the CPU or GPU listed. It's an AMD of some kind that wasn't killer when I got it 6ish years ago, and a GTX 960 with 2gigs of video memory. Even downtown Boston (I went there first).
