Side by Side Comparison Technical Notes
This test was done to contrast the visual downgrade provided by the FPS Boost which is a Xbox specific feature and just a regular 60fps mod that’s available within the game’s free mod content area. The idea was to see if the game could handle the same experience of a better frame rate, but at a higher resolution.

While both versions do face drops when it comes to the fluidity, it’s fairly even between the two no matter the situation. It’s just that the higher resolution version looks significantly better, and has a better render distance when it comes to various long range objects that are present in the backdrop when you’re moving throughout the world.

It really comes down to what players want when it comes to the quality of the experience. Is it worth sacrificing a lot of the game’s look for better fluidity, or to get about the same with the mod and to have the higher resolution. Past that, Achievements are disabled with the mods for context. Whatever the case, it’s great to have options for the game, it’s just a shame that a locked 4k resolution at sixty fps wasn’t possible, or perhaps getting close to such.

Head out into the wasteland as you search for your child. You remember brief moments as you were sleeping in cryo, seeing the child being taken away. This area of Boston is far different from how you remember, with it being a post-apocalyptic wasteland now.

You’ll meet a variety of characters trying to find your son, making strange choices along the way and possibly aligning with various factions. There are even some rather bizarre secrets to be found out there, as you build up a settlement.

Hopefully the comparison was helpful in understanding the changes that are being presented between these options. It can help greatly to have a quick visual presentation that’s lined up for a faster viewing.

This side by side comparison should really provide all of the info you need to know when it comes to matching up these choices and giving you the quick facts to see why they’re being placed up against one another.
