Bethesda’s finally confirmed some important Fallout 4 modding details for PS4, Xbox One and PC. While we wait for the rest of the details to emerge we want to take a look at what we’re most excited about right now.
Last year, Bethesda made a couple of promises to Xbox One, PS4 and PC users. It promised to release Fallout 4 DLC (free & paid) to help expand the wasteland and the stories within it. It also promised to release an official Fallout 4 mod tool that would lead to Fallout 4 mods.
This month, Bethesda’s finally started to make good on those promises. First with an announcement about upcoming Fallout 4 DLC and more recently with some new details about the official Fallout 4 mods for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Unofficial Fallout 4 mods have been around for several months and they’ve allowed PC users to change their game in more ways than one.
Later this year, Bethesda will start supporting official mods on all three platforms, something that will, along with the DLC, help improve the replay value of the award winning game. Fallout 4 doesn’t have a multiplayer mode so this is important.
Armed with some new details, I want to take a look at five things I’m excited about. I expect this list to evolve over time but Bethesda hasn’t given us much to work with.
Fallout 4 Mod Release Date Just Weeks Away
If you own Fallout 4 for Xbox One or PS4 or if you're a technically inept PC user that doesn't want to dabble in unofficial mods, you should be excited because Bethesda's plan is to release the official mod tool sometime in the next 10 weeks.
The company hasn't confirmed this is a blog post just yet but Todd Howard says that his team plans to release the first Fallout 4 mod support in between the first two DLC add-ons Automatron (March) and Wasteland Workshop (May).
We don't have an exact date in April to look forward to but at least we have April to look forward to. The release window could've been a whole lot worse.
What this means is that in the next three months Fallout 4 PC gamers will gain access to three new add-ons (Automatron, Wasteland Workshop, Far Harbor) and official Fallout 4 mods. That's a pretty big first half of the year.
Bethesda is keeping its promise (early 2016 for the mod tool) and that's very exciting in a world filled with delays and broken promises.
