PS4 Fallout 4 Mods Release Info

Fallout 4 mods are available for Xbox One and PC but they’ve been delayed for the PlayStation 4. With that in mind we want to take you through the most important things you need to know about the PS4 Fallout 4 mods release.

Since the Fallout 4 release last year, Bethesda’s beefed up the game’s content with free updates, DLC, and mods.

Automatron’s been out since March. The Wasteland Workshop DLC landed in April. The big one, Far Harbor, arrived on May 19th. More recently, the company pushed out its Contraptions Workshop DLC, its Vault-Tec Workshop DLC and its final piece of Fallout 4 DLC entitled Nuka World.

Official PC Fallout 4 mods are also available if you want to expand your game that way. So are Xbox One Fallout 4 mods.

Fallout 4 mods were supposed to come to Sony’s PlayStation 4 but they’ve hit a major snag and now might not be coming at all.

Mods have played a huge role in Bethesda’s games for a number of years now because they add replay value. Remember, games like Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim don’t offer multiplayer.

With the PS4 Fallout 4 mods release dragging into September, we want to fill you in on the most important things to know about Fallout 4 mods if you own a PlayStation 4.

We’ll continue to update this roundup with new information as it becomes available from Bethesda and Sony so check back often.

PS4 Fallout 4 Mods Release Date

Earlier this year, Bethesda confirmed plans to release Xbox One Fallout 4 mods in May and PS4 Fallout 4 mods in June.

Xbox One Fallout 4 mods arrived on schedule but the PS4 mods release date was delayed. Sadly, it now looks like the release date has been delayed indefinitely.

It appears the PS4 “evaluation process” is over and Sony’s decided “not approve user mods the way they should work.” This is straight from Bethesda itself and it’s disappointing to say the least.

Bethesda says that until Sony will allow it “to offer proper mod support for PS4” the content will not be available. The door isn’t completely closed but things are looking pretty grim at this point.

Currently, there’s no way to install and use Fallout 4 mods on the PS4 and it appears the company has pulled over 1000 PS4 Fallout 4 mod listings from its marketplace.

If and when Sony and Bethesda are able to agree on the process, PS4 users will have access to a substantial library modifications.

“Other Ways”

The situation is looking pretty bad right now but there’s a glimmer of hope in the announcement.

In its announcement Bethesda notes that it hopes “to find other ways user mods can be available for our PlayStation audience.”

We wouldn’t expect a quick turnaround but it’s possible Bethesda and Sony will find a way to deliver down the road.

Stay tuned.

PS4 Skyrim Mods

If you were planning to buy Skyrim Special Edition for PlayStation 4 note this indefinite delay impacts that game as well.

Mods were expected to play a huge role in the upgraded version of Skyrim and it looks like they’ll only be available for the PC and Xbox One.

For now at least.

101 Xbox One Fallout 4 Mods You Should Try Right Now

Let's start with one of our favorite PC Fallout 4 mods that (fortunately) quickly made it over to the list of Fallout 4 mods for console.

keyNuker creates a key ring in your inventory that hides keys and passwords. With it installed, your MISC tab in on your Pip-Boy is going to be a lot more manageable, particularly if you're deep into the game with tons and tons of items listed. 

The screenshot here shows you what the vanilla MISC tab looks like compared to the MISC tab with keyNuker installed. It's night and day.

This is one of our favorite Fallout 4 mods and one that should consider if you're tired of wasting time scrolling through hundreds (many of them worthless) of items.
