Fans of "Fallout 4" can now use and enjoy the high-resolution texture pack, which is now available via entertainment platform Steam.

News of the pack's availability was reported by NeoGAF member Strafebogey, who also included an image of the update.

Meanwhile, the Steam website reminded gamers that those who want to download the Texture Pack for free should have a PC running on Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required), with an Intel Core i7-5820K (or better) processor, and an 8GB RAM. Furthermore, the PC should also have at least a GTX 1080 8GB GPU and a storage space of 58 GB.

"Experience the wasteland like you've never seen it before with the Fallout 4 High-Resolution Texture Pack!," said the pack's official description. "From the blasted buildings of Lexington to the shores of Boston Harbor and beyond, every location is enhanced with ultra-deluxe detail," the description added.

Last month, game developer Bethesda announced that they will release the texture pack, which they tagged as a "love letter" to the fans of the game. Although the pack is free of charge, gamers still need to have enough space to download it, Bethesda stressed. "Give it a shot and if you need to return to the original textures, you can disable them within the game's launcher menu," the developers went on to say.

Apart from the PC, the PS4 Pro will also receive a new update, although the exact date has not yet been revealed. The PS4 updates will include enhanced draw distance for objects, trees, grass, and NPCs; improved God ray effects; and a native 1440p resolution.

Meanwhile, ShackNews reported that the latest update also includes features like a "Featured" category for mods, the addition "ratings count" to the Mods Browsing Menu, and the addition of "favorites count" to Mod Details Page. Likewise, fixes for crashes when scrolling through Load Order, and improvements in the game's overall stability and general performance were also applied.
