Bethesda has officially released the highly anticipated Next-Gen Update for Fallout 4, enhancing the game with free Creation Club content and native 4K resolution for players on Xbox Series X/S and PS5. Despite the excitement, not all PlayStation Plus subscribers were initially able to access the update at no extra cost, causing some confusion among the gaming community.

Bethesda later clarified that the update is indeed available at no additional charge for PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers. However, they have not provided any updates for those who obtained the game through the PS5 Catalogue or the more basic PlayStation Plus Essential subscription. This situation is reminiscent of past instances where game publishers restricted next-gen upgrades for games acquired through promotional PlayStation Plus offers, such as the PlayStation Plus Collection.

For example, Square Enix allowed PS4 owners of Final Fantasy 7 Remake to upgrade to the PS5 version for free, except for those who received the PS4 version through PlayStation Plus Essential. As the gaming community watches closely, further updates from Bethesda on the availability of Fallout 4’s Next-Gen Update for all subscriber tiers are eagerly anticipated.
