Fallout 4: System requirements Fallout 4 Guide

Last update: 16 April 2024

Fallout 4 is a very demanding game. In case of a PC version, the lack of vertical sync in the graphic settings has a negative impact on the frames dispersion. For most of the game, the framerate is constant, but in some parts - especially in the cities - the frames dropped quite drastically, usually just for a moment. Special effects, such as explosions and effects that accompany using "special" weapons (plasma cannon, laser rifle etc.) are well optimized and they do not cause performance drop. Very often a delay can be noticed when switching a weapon and the texture isn't loaded and you cannot use it - in such case, you must wait for a moment. Another irritating bug is the habit of companions getting stuck - luckily, when you walk away from them, they will teleport near you.

The PlayStation 4 version isn't perfect as well. Many times, the game slows down when exploring cities, factories or other more complex locations. Great framedrops occur very frequently when you decide to use V.A.T.S. combat system. Luckily, just like in the PC version, you can save your game anytime you want and create many save slots. This allows you to avoid complications when making wrong decisions or you find a bug that is making the rest of the game harder.

Important - The impressions from PC and PS4 version are valid for the version with the day-one patch.

  • RAM memory: 8 GB
  • GPU: Radeon HD7970

The above configuration allowed the game to work smoothly on medium settings with all additional effects and SSAO active. Usually, the game kept the 60 FPS level. Rare frame drops were temporary, it didn't have much negative impact on the game experience. The game requires a large number of free RAM memory, which means that when someone has 4 GB of it, the game will work, but no other memory consuming applications should be active in the background.
