'Fallout 4' DLC release date, rumors: Additional DLC to have VR support? 'Fallout 5' may be in Bethesda\'s pipeline


Rumors are rife that Bethesda’s hit game, “Fallout 4,” will have more downloadable content packs even after the release of “Nuka-World.” Although the game developer remains mum over the rumored expansion, some suggest that it will include support for virtual reality gaming.

According to reports, what may have added to the assumption that “Fallout 4” will receive said support is that Bethesda allegedly promoted VR editions previously. A rumored patch is also deemed to enable the game to run on PC-based VR headsets.

A Reddit user also apparently discovered a steamDB entry on the game’s Steam listing that is deemed to be another DLC. However, Bethesda’s vice president Pete Hines reportedly debunked speculations but admitted that there will be an upcoming update in store for players. He also emphasized that “Nuka-World,” which arrived in August, is the last DLC for the game.

Meanwhile, some fans are said to be hoping that if additional DLC does not materialize, there may be a new version of the game dubbed “Fallout 5.” Tech website Fraghero notes that Ryan Alosio, who voices Deacon and H2-22 in the series, accidentally let it slip on social media that a fifth installment is in Bethesda’s pipeline. After realizing the gaffe, he took the post down along with the comments.

There is also hearsay that the game may finally introduce PlayStation 4 mods alongside the release of the remastered edition of “Skyrim.” Express UK shared that Bethesda will be announcing the system requirements for the PS4 mods very soon. However, it appears that there may be a caveat in the development. Apparently, only assets included within “Fallout 4” are allowed to be played on the PS4.

Since there is no official comment yet regarding VR support and PS4 mods, available information should be taken with a grain of salt.

“Fallout 4” is available across platforms.
