The update is out now!

The update is coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. Here’s what’s included:

New Content in Fallout 4 Next-Gen Update

In addition to all of this, the update comes with some brand-new content.

The Makeshift Weapon Pack leans into Fallout’s dark sense of humor, with a variety of deadly weapons created from unusual items, including a baseball launcher and a piggy bank. Meanwhile, the Halloween Workshop introduces 38 Halloween-themed decorations for your settlements.

Perhaps the most exciting new addition is Enclave Remnants, a collection of new content that brings the Enclave – an authoritarian group originating from pre-war America – into the world of Fallout 4. The update comes with a new quest, Echoes of the Past, which sees the Enclave attempting to gain a foothold in the Commonwealth. Is this a hint that the group will be front and center in Fallout 5? Only time will tell.

Additionally, Enclave Remnants comes with new workshop items, the Enclave Colonel uniform, and the rerelease of the following Creation Club items:

  • Enclave weapon and armor skins
  • Tesla cannon
  • Hellfire power armor
  • X-02 power armor
  • Heavy incinerator
