Fallout 4 System Specifications and Release Information Revealed

Posted: 11:15AM

Fallout 4 is just over a month away, with many people planning how much time they'll take off from work to explore the Commonwealth or figure out their SPECIAL stats, among others. In addition to that, people were wondering just what kind of computer they would need to run it. Well, wonder no more as Bethesda has revealed the system specifications for Fallout 4, as well as a whole bunch of other release information. For starters, Fallout 4 requires Steam in order to play on PC, which was expected considering Bethesda's recent titles do, too. It also supports Steam Achievements to track your progress and compare it with your friends. Xbox One and Xbox 360 controller support on the PC is supported with no extra adjustments; other controllers are supported, but may need a little extra tweaking. There are some other bits and pieces to know, but those can wait until the systems specifications.


Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Intel Core i5-2300 2.8 GHz/AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz or equivalent
30 GB free HDD space
NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or equivalent


Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Intel Core i7 4790 3.6 GHz/AMD FX-9590 4.7 GHz or equivalent
30 GB free HDD space
NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB/AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB or equivalent

Nothing there is too crazy and many should be able to play it no problem without any extra hardware purchases. The 30GB hard drive size is a touch high, but not excessively so when compared to recent games (consoles need between 28 and 35GB of free space). The 64-bit Windows OS is a nice requirement to see, as is the 8GB of RAM. If you're sitll rocking 4GB, this is definitely the time to upgrade. Video cards should be easily covered by most people, although I can see some purchases in the near future for some. All in all, most people should be able to run Fallout 4 no problem when it arrives on November 10.

The launch date is November 10, but it unlocks at 12:01am EST in the U.S. So that means if you live out on the west coast, you can start playing Fallout 4 at 9:01pm on November 9. In other markets, Fallout 4 unlocks at 12:01am local time on November 10, except in most of Asia where it's 12am on November 11 and December 17 at 12am in Japan. Language support is wide, with North America receiving English and French voice/text; South America has English voice/text and pt-BR and Latin American Spanish text; UK, Australia, and New Zealand are English voice/text; most of Europe gets English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish voice/text; Russia and Poland get English voice/text and Polish and Russian text; most of Asia is English voice/text and English voice/Traditional Chinese text; and Japan is Japanese voice/text.

The Pip-Boy companion app supports Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices, and works with the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One copies of the game. The Pip-Boy Edition Pip-Boy supports the Apple iPhone 6/6s, 5/5s, and 4/4s, and the Samsung Galaxy S5, S4, and S3. Customizable phone inserts can be tailored to your specific phone if you have one other than those listed. Any phone larger than those models will not fit inside the Pip-Boy in order to keep it accurate with the in-game model, but you can still use the Pip-Boy app and go from there.

That should cover just about all there is on Fallout 4 at the present time. We have the system specifications for PC, the console storage size, the release time, Steam support, and Pip-Boy app and Pip-Boy Edition information. Mod support and launch info was previously covered here, where mods will arrive early next year through Bethesda.net. We'll see you in the Commonwealth beginning on November 10 (or a bit before if you're not on the east coast of the U.S.).
