New Skyrim and Fallout 4 Patches Now Available On PS4 And Xbox One

New PS4 Pro enhancements now available for Fallout 4.

24 Comments

New updates for a pair of Bethesda games, Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition, are now available on both Xbox One and PS4.

These patches--1.4 for Skyrim and 1.9 for Fallout 4--are already available on PC. They primarily deal with fixing bugs and introducing some new functionality for browsing mods. Specifically, you can now easily see the number of favorites or ratings a mod has received, and there are options to sort mods by Highest Rated or Most Favorite on a daily, weekly, monthly, or all-time basis.

If you're a PS4 Pro owner, however, the Fallout 4 update will be of particular interest to you. It introduces new support for the console's additional horsepower, providing a native 1440p resolution, improved draw distances for certain elements (trees, NPCs, grass, and objects), and enhanced godray light effects.

Both patches are live now on all platforms; PC players can also now grab a high-resolution texture pack for free. You can see the full patch notes in the comments below.
