Have you been enjoying Fallout 4 on PC? I know I haven’t! That’s right, I’m one of the few people who is willingly waiting until after the new year to enjoy the latest Bethesda has to offer, as I know there will be a few important patches, driver updates and most importantly, the first wave of performance and graphics enhancing mods available.
We already reported on the first “mod” for the game, with the release of a SweetFX update, which you can view here. Now we’ve also got our hands on the first ENBSeries mod courtesy of modder Boris Vorontsov, who released the update earlier today.
“This is patch without any graphic enhancements. It fixes game specific bugs or at least designed for that as i don’t have bugs for test them myself. Please post here results, if it helps, on the contrary CTDs or new kind of bugs with it, incompatiblity with other software.”
The mod only includes a few simple features for now, but let’s give the guy a break, it’s only been out a few days and updates are bound to start rolling out soon. If you want to download the mod, hit up the ENB page here.
Before we start this article, I want to get something right out of the way; these configurations for ENBSeries are currently unreleased and you can’t have them, not even if you ask nicely. On the plus side, we do have some screenshots of this graphical gaming pornography and you can bet that the people behind it, ENBSeries members Ryuken and dpeasant, will keep improving and release the mod in the near future, that is after all the whole point of the modding scene.
The latest screenshots are eyewatering beautiful. In my opinion, there’s still a lot of work that can be done and let’s not forget, people are still making drastic improvements to GTA IV, let alone GTA V.
The game’s engine really shines through here and it shows just how much potential there is for modding the game and I can’t wait to see how much further it can be pushed; most likely a lot further than most people’s graphics cards will allow. Keep in mind, screenshots are one thing, playable framerates are something else completely.
ENBSeries already has some stunning improvements to bring to GTA V, but when combined with more mods, such as texture packs and mesh replacements, it’ll really take your game to the next level.
The start to Grand Theft Auto V modding may have just happened, as OpenIV lead developer “GooD-NTS” claims to have gained access to the game’s encrypted files.
Call it great timing or whatever you will, but this info came to light a few hours after the ENBSeries creator’s opinion. He had said “I was wrong. Rockstar did everything to prevent modding of GTA5, so at this moment [it’s] impossible to do anything via editing game files”. Now it sure seems that the OpenIV team has been able to gain access to the encrypted game files, which would mean that modders can soon get to work on actual substantial mods, not just FOV adjustment.
With the level and quality as the previous mods Grand Theft Auto PC games have had it was hoped that history would continue. It seems now that it indeed will continue and should make that investment you spent on purchasing the game go all that much further if you end up spending more time playing some mods.
Time will tell if there will be any fruits to these new developments. You can rest assured though that there is a small army that is dedicated to making these mods happen, even if it takes a lot of work.
Thank you DSOfor providing us with this information.
