Fallout 4 Horizon is the true next-gen update we’ve been waiting for

Fallout 4 Horizon is the true next-gen update we’ve been waiting for

Revisiting Fallout 4 will be a completely new experience

With Fallout 4 having a resurgence back in April thanks to the successful launch of the Fallout TV show, it is no wonder that dedicated creators were busy improving the Bethesda title.

It is safe to say that April 2024 belonged to all things Fallout. With the release of the Prime TV show adaptation and its subsequent success, players both old and new flocked to the video games to get more of the post-apocalyptic setting.

An upcoming Fallout 76 update will see you play as a ghoul. Finally!

As a result, Fallout 4 saw a dramatic increase in players but with the RPG being released back in 2015, it is in need of a little next-gen touch up.

However, with Bethesda reportedly hard at work developing The Elder Scrolls 6 followed by Fallout 5, it may be a while before we see an official next-gen update.

Luckily for us, one creator over on Nexus Mods has us covered with the Horizon mod. Made by zawinul, it “is a large-scale overhaul of Fallout 4 that rebalances and expands the gameplay from the ground up.”

“Featuring thousands of changes, redesigned systems, and new additions to very carefully balance everything together”, this free-to-download Fallout 4 mod is perfect for those who want to play the game but with some important quality of life changes.

When it says “thousands of changes”, it means thousands and the extensive list of patch notes can be found on the official page.

The official description says: ‘Combat, exploration, crafting, and survival, are key aspects of the Fallout games. Unfortunately they sometimes quickly fall to the wayside and become boring, uneventful, and lose their purpose after a few levels. Horizon reclaims these aspects, by making your entire playthrough more challenging and interesting.”

With the mod currently sporting over 1 million downloads, it is safe to say that it is one Fallout 4 mod you should not miss out on.
