Fallout 4 is getting a fresh update and will be Steam Deck Verified

By - | Views: 45,746

Bethesda announced that Fallout 4 is getting a fresh update to bring some new features, along with getting it Steam Deck Verified later in April.

On the blog post it mentions April 25th along with next-gen console updates us PC players will also see "widescreen and ultra-wide support, fixes to Creation Kit and a variety of quest updates". On top of that we're also getting "stability, mods and bug fixes" and "Fallout 4 will also be Steam Deck verified" (it's currently only rated Playable by Valve).

For a game that's over 8 years old this is really nice to see!

Free Creation Club items are also on the way in a new "Echoes of the Past" quest that sees you try to stop "The Enclave from spreading their dangerous ideology and gaining a foothold in the Commonwealth". They said that along with workshop items and the Enclave Colonel uniform they're also including some other previously released content:

  • Enclave Weapon Skins
  • Enclave Armor Skins
  • Tesla Cannon
  • Hellfire Power Armor
  • X-02 Power Armor
  • Heavy Incinerator

Skyrim actually got a similar update late last year, so I wouldn't be surprised if they lock down some options like they did for Skyrim on Steam Deck. Depends what exactly they mean by getting it Verified for Fallout 4.

You can buy Fallout 4 from:

Humble Store

Steam

It's also currently in a big Fanatical Fallout Bundle.

That's very nice of them indeed.

I assume none of these updates will come to the GOG version?

I expected a Fallout 4 Steam Deck Edition for 20 bucks. So this is a nice surprise.
I'll wait until the hammer drops and see if they don't squeeze in some online only mode 😑

They recently updated Skyrim with some steam deck improvements in late 2023. It broke all of the modpacks I used for months, so if you are interested in playing modded fallout in the next few months, you might want to setup the mod pack now, and disable automatic updates until your mods are back up to date.

Hopefully this update doesn’t break everything like it did for Skyrim. I love that this game is getting QoL improvements and steam deck UI changes to get verified. It does run really well on Deck currently.

It's nice to see, but Fallout 4? Yuck. I'd rather see further stability improvements (Steam Deck and otherwise) to the classic games, as well as Fallout 3 and, the best but most unlikely, New Vegas.

If you're modding Bethesda games this is yet another case of the opposite of nice...

I'm still waiting for them to re-re-re-release Skyrim. It still makes them bank.

Steam deck "updates"... things like Creation Club exists or just Bugthesda.
