Fallout 4's 55 GB Hi-Res Texture Pack Doesn't Make A Huge Difference, But It's Nice

The promised free Fallout 4 high-resolution texture pack released on PC yesterday, making the game look a bit better when you get close to things in exchange for a large chunk of hard drive space.

Between the quality of the original release and the mods players have created since, Fallout 4 already looks pretty spiffy, so there's not much for a large batch of uncompressed textures to do. Redditor BrettonTT posted a gallery of comparison shots, and while there are noticeable differences when zoomed in close, it doesn't seem like the kind of bump you'd need to scramble to clear hard drive space for.

My favourite shot from the gallery. Here the edges of the rust are blurry and undefined.

And her they are sharp enough to make your fingertips ache at the thought of touching it.

Hit up BrettonTT's imgur gallery for more shots, or hit up Steam to get that 55 GB download started.


    I thought the last story on this was about how awesome it was and you needed a DeLorean just to get a pc to run it.

      Isnt that how journalism works?
      Using buzz words like dyna-nism and link-a-tivity. Praising something like it was jesus 3rd coming and then when he does come, stone him to death.

    It's just fallout 4 drinking a V.

    I dunno, this looks worse than some of the stuff you can get on the nexus for less than 10gb.

    I will still probably get it anyway.

    The resolution patch is REALLY only useful for people running at higher resolutions IMO. If your at 1080p then it may not be so noticeable. And yes going from 1024/2048 textures to 4096 doesn't produce the WOW factor some may expect coming from 256/512 textures. 4k monitor resolution does capitalize on the 4k textures nicely however.

    Maybe if it was a HD nude mod people would be more interested in d/l'ing 55GB.
