Hello, as the gaming world is aware, Fallout 4 is happening. I have a Macbook Pro with Retina Display with

- 2.8GHx dual-core Intel Core iS with 3MB L3 cache (Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz)
- 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
- 512GB of flash storage
- Retina display: 13.3 inch, LED-backlit display with IPS technology, 2560 by 1600 pixels

Now, my question is, if I were to make a Steam account and purchase Fallout 4 (if it were to be released later this year) will my laptop be powerful enough to run it? Thank you :)

We know almost nothing about it, including the engine it uses or system requirements. So it's impossible say.

But since you have integrated graphics, I'm inclined to guess either no or only on low settings/resolution.

It really comes down to what graphic card you have, which you have not listed.

That information is not necessary since the CPU and display size were listed. The 2.8 GHz Core i5 means it's a mid-2014 model, which will have the Intel Iris integrated GPU.

Unless the PC port is particularly exceptional, the game is probably not going to run all that well. Don't expect more than 30 fps at 1280x720 resolution and low-medium settings.
