If you’re like me, watching the Fallout TV series has only made you want to play one of the games all the more (our first episode review here). I’ve been hesitant to dive back into the most recent mainline game in Fallout 4, because the second I do, you know the next-gen update that’s been promised will arrive. Thankfully, my thirst for the wasteland will soon be quenched, as Fallout 4 will receive the long awaited “next-gen” update on April 25th. There’s a lot to dive into below, and while you read and wait, check out our interview with Jonathan Nolan, the director of the Fallout TV series!
