So by now you probably know that footage ahead of next week's launch has been leaking its way onto various corners of the internet. Which has led to a number of people talking about what Fallout 4 looks like. Asking the question, are the graphics any good? Well, we know that it runs on the somewhat aged Creation Engine. But since the release of Skyrim various graphical bells and whistles have been added. And in a new post, Bethesda opens up about the game's new 'physically based deferred renderer' and more.

The renderer in question is all about lighting and ensuring that material in the game world like metal, wood, glass, and others all reflect light in different and realistic ways. But they didn't stop there as all manner of graphical tech jargon has been added, including:

  • Temporal Anti-Aliasing
  • Screen Space Reflections
  • Bokeh Depth of Field
  • Screen Space Ambient Occlusion
  • Height Fog
  • Motion Blur
  • Filmic Tonemapping
  • Custom Skin and Hair Shading
  • Dynamic Dismemberment using Hardware Tessellation
  • Volumetric Lighting
  • Gamma Correct Physically Based Shading

  • And with the dynamic day/night/weather system this will result in a number of locations looking visually distinct anytime you visit.

    To read more about the visuals, head here. Fallout 4 is out November 10 -- which is next week!

    Dynamic Dismemberment using Hardware Tessellation

    I had images of my computer getting ripped apart from the struggle of keeping up with the graphics :(

    Nice to see you guys still can't manage to show us screen shots in full size without f*****g around.

    With the amount of good quality, and varied mods, for F3 - I wouldn't be surprised if they lifted half of F4's stuff straight from mods. The ideas at least. I can remember installing a weather mod for F3.

    It looks to be a decent upgrade from FO3 and New Vegas visually. The models would be higher quality in general but some of the textures may not be super great (clutter and random bits and pieces) but then again, having every single item on screen with 4k texture res would not be a good idea. It should be good and even better with mods.

    Probably be a high res texture pack for pc anyway

    Hey guys, you can now download the pipboy app. I got it on my phone last night. Try it out in demo mode, in the inventory there is a mini game you can play too.


    Also some Fallout chat thing.
