Fallout 4 Runs Better on PS4 After Patch 1.02 But Shadows Removed

Bethesda has released Fallout 4 patch 1.02 on all platforms and the good news is that the game runs a little better on consoles especially the PS4. There’s a slight boost in performance.

However, instead of optimizing they’ve actually downgraded the graphics by removing shadows from certain areas. Some people are reporting that the PC version features the same downgrade.

Now as you can clearly see in the image on the left (courtesy, Digital Foundry), the area had shadows and quite detailed ones too. The image on the right shows that it has been removed but the frame rate is a bit higher. Now this is certainly disappointing as the game will be less atmospheric now.
