Fallout 4 brought players into a whole new world with its vision of post-apocalyptic America when it released in November 2015, and now those looking for an even more immersive Commonwealth to explore on PS4 and PC can do so with enhanced visuals and more next week.

In an update on its official company blog, Bethesda Softworks announced that new updates will be available for Fallout 4 on PC and PS4, with the PC version getting a new high-res texture pack as a free download to players. The high-res texture pack will require an additional 58GB of hard drive space, with the recommended specs for the enhanced PC textures below:

Recommended PC Specs
Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Intel Core i7-5820K or better
GTX 1080 8GB/AMD Radeon RX 490 8GB

Alongside the update for the PC version, Bethesda also announced that Fallout 4 will be updated to support PS4 Pro for “enhanced lighting and graphic features,” with the update to include native 1440p resolution, enhanced draw distance in the game’s world (for trees, grass, objects, and NPCs), and enhanced Godray effects. The PS4 Pro update will be available on PS4 as a new title update to players next week, as well.
