Fallout 4 received a next-gen patch last month, bringing some desperately needed QoL improvements to Bethesda's wasteland shooter RPG. Here at Portal, we had a good time with the Next-Gen version of Fallout 4; however, we noted very little difference in performance and graphics mode.

This second update for the next-gen patch should hopefully fix these issues by offering players further customization and other minor bug fixes with discovered issues.

Per Bethesda's official site, here are all the changes in Fallout 4 Next Gen Update 2:


Fallout 4 has received a new update that adds the ability to manage your control over the game’s graphic fidelity or performance. Additional fixes and improvements have also been made to address some of the feedback you provided us with on the previous update.


  • Xbox Series S|X: 1.10.765
  • PlayStation 5: 1.10.985
  • PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One: 1.10.984


Xbox Series S|X and PlayStation 5 Display Settings

Thanks to your feedback, we’ve been able to implement the ability to control your graphic fidelity and performance. We highly recommend you run with the default settings but now you can change your options to better fit your playstyle and display.

Frame Rate Target

Frame Rate Target allows you to choose between 30, 40, and 60 (default). It is important to note that to select 40, your display must be able to support 120hz.
Visual and Performance Prioritization

You can now choose between Visuals and Performance (default) while trying to maintain frame rate target. 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.

Please note both modes can only be changed from the main menu.
