While Fallout 4 can be misjudged for its issues, I actually loved the game for its storytelling and gameplay. After experiencing the post-apocalyptic world again in a TV series, it is time for me to update my game and revisit the adventure. After Starfield (Review) came out I did not think Bethesda would shower us with a free update for Fallout. But well, here we are.

What do you think of this free next-gen Fallout 4 update? Would you want to experience Fallout 4 on next-gen now? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
