After Bethesda Softworks made its debut at E3 2015 with a press conference, it also pulled the curtains off Fallout 4. Having showed the audience and its fans in general how it looks and what they can expect, one feature that evaded everyone was the resolution and frame rate of the game. However, the information on this is now out.
Fallout 4 will be running at 1080p resolution and 30fps frame rate. It is not limited to a particular platform but for all of them, including PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
This revelation comes straight from Todd Howard, game director of Fallout 4, who confirmed it to Digital Spy at the E3 event.
"It is 1080p on everything," he apparently replied to a question regarding the specs of this action RPG title.
He also debunked speculations about Fallout 4 running at 60fps by saying that it will be running at 30fps instead.
It is important to note that the game is not a shooter game, one that lets us explore Boston in ruins and hence frame rate is not as important as in the other. Also, if the team thought about going for 60fps then they might have had to scale back the game to 900p on the PS4 and 720p on the Xbox One, argued Cinema Blend.
The confirmed resolution will be giving greater clarity and smoothness to see the landscape of this new wasteland.
Moreover, Fallout 4 will have modding too. Howard has spoken on record that his studio is working with Microsoft to bring first for the PC, arriving around "early 2016". It will also come to Xbox One and PS4 at a later date. He added, "Then we're going to make that work on the Xbox One, and then we're going to do the PS4 version." He also confirmed that there will not be any paid mods in Fallout 4.
Fallout 4 will release on 10 November, 2015.
