    Wow, cool. I wonder if this is a good time to jump into Fallout 4 then?

    Steep system requirements. I kinda like that though. I don't meet the GPU requirements, but probably worth a go....

    Seems to be, £13.50 from Amazon, or £11.99 from CD Keys for anyone wondering where to pick it up.

    Why the hell does a hi res texture pack upgrade need a 6 core CPU?

    My theory: They assume someone using a high-res texture pack is the same person who wants to crank up all the settings to max and they adjusted the specs based around that idea.

    So it'll be a slightly prettier piece of rubbish?

    It's because of the amount of draw calls the high res shadow shadows make.

    Looking forward to this. I loved the official unofficial one they did for FO3. This could make me like it more.
