PS4 Fallout 4 Mods Release: 5 Things to Know

Fallout 4 mods have been available for Xbox One and PC and now they’re finally available for the PS4. 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.

In the year since Fallout 4’s release, Bethesda’s beefed the game up with free updates, DLC, and free mods.

The Automatron DLC’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 called Nuka World. (And yes, Nuka World really is the last DLC.)

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

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 any multiplayer modes.

With the PS4 Fallout 4 mods release dragging into November, 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.

Fallout 4 Creation Kit

If you’re looking to create Fallout 4 mods for the PlayStation 4 know that you can do that right now thanks to the Creation Kit.

The Fallout 4 Creation Kit is available to anyone looking to create mods for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One or Windows PC.

Bethesda’s confirmed PS4 support in the Creation Kit though it notes that “PS4 Mods are Plugins only” and “no archives are permitted.”

If you own a PC, you can download the Creation Kit through the Bethesda.net launcher. If you want to create for PS4 you’ll need to update the launcher.

Remember, Bethesda’s Creation Kit is for the Windows PC only. It will never make its way over to Xbox One or PlayStation 4.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Creation Kit and you need assistance, take a look at the Creation Kit Wiki for help. It’s a great place to start if you want to create for PS4 or another platform.

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. Bethesda then delayed PS4 mods indefinitely leaving the release date and official release up in the air.

Well, after months of rumor and speculation, the official PS4 Fallout 4 mods release date is finally here.

PS4

After a lengthy delay, Bethesda is now offering support for PS4 Fallout 4 mods. Those of you looking to use mods on PS4 will need to download the company’s latest update (1.8).

At one point there were over 1000 PS4 Fallout 4 mod listings on Bethesda’s marketplace and we expect many to reappear as we push away from today’s release.

Currently, PS4 owners have access to 160 PS4 Fallout 4 mods.

Fallout 4 1.8 Update

Bethesda’s Fallout 4 1.8 update brings mod support to the PlayStation 4.

Fallout-4-Mod-Armor

The Fallout 4 1.8 update is live for the PC and it’s not available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This is the update you need if you want to use mods.

On top of PS4 mod support, Bethesda’s Fallout 4 1.8 update will also bring fixes for mods and gameplay issues.

For more on the 1.8 update’s change log, look at our roundup.

PS4 Fallout 4 Mods Size

For the moment, it looks like PS4 Fallout 4 mod space will be limited to 900MB. On the Xbox One, the limit is 2GB.

Obviously, this is concerning to developers and mod users alike though Bethesda has said that its working with Sony to increase the limit.

Fallout-4-mod-Dauntless

There’s a chance that we’ll see a change in the weeks ahead but for now, Bethesda says it hasn’t heard anything concrete from its partner.

Of note is the fact that for Skyrim Special Edition, mods reserve 5 GB on the Xbox One and 1 GB of space on PlayStation 4.

No External Assets

Bethesda recently confirmed a caveat for PS4 Fallout 4 mods.

The developer says that you won’t be able to use any external assets with PS4 Fallout 4 mods. Instead, you’ll be limited to the assets that are included with the game itself.

What this means is that PS4 mods on Skyrim, and Fallout 4, will be far more limited than they are on the PC and Xbox One.

This could change down the road but it looks like the decision will be up to Sony, not Bethesda.

189 PS4 & Xbox One Fallout 4 Mods You Should Try Right Now

keyNuker

Let's start with one of our favorite PC Fallout 4 mods that quickly made it over to the long 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.

    in an official announcement about fallout 4 mods, it said that bethseda will not grant acces to copyrighted materials either, so there will be no starwars mods and no doom on pipboy.

      If you reeeeeally want to do programming and 3D modeling on a PHONE, there’s probably a way, but it seems really inefficient.
      If you just want to install mods, you can do that from your Xbox/Playstation itself. The bit about it only being available on Windows is referring to the mod tools (the thing used to create mods).

    All I want is different vault suits, and maybe more options to customize the body of your character, like they did in Elder Scrolls Online. Also, female characters need a vault booty. That’s a necessity.

    The only reason PlayStation 4 is “last”, is because Xbox One similar operating system to that of the Windows 10 operating system making it easier to get the modding kit needed to get mods implemented and usable. Where as the PlayStation 4 has its own and Bethesda has to work closely with Sony to get to happen.

      That is true but that’s not just it. PS4 is also last because Bethesda has a better relationship with Microsoft than it does Sony. PS4 is usually last when it comes to Bethesda Games

      Well they did say the beta will be a little after the 19th so maybe the 20th 21th? What I’m worried about is PC elitist that will keep mods from Xbox one and PS4 over their petty pride.But then again I suppose if you can’t be prideful of something in your life you might as well be prideful over a game.

    indeed. I hope the building mods will be added too. There is no single reason not to do it. I don´t understand why PC version of Fallout get more mods then the consoles. Step up indeed, and give us all the mods! You won´t regret it.

    Uh sorry your article is very incorrect on saying Todd Howard will not release the Creation Kit for the consoles. He made it quite clear that it will be released. That is his biggest dream is for console users to have that same experience as p.c. users.

    “Remember, Fallout 4 doesn’t have a multiplayer mode.”
    I don’t think that’s even an issue. It’s funny that this sentence his in the context of what replay value the game has. You could spend hundreds of hours on the game and the author still has the gall to say the game lacks multiplayer. Jeez.

    Okay, this may sound lame but I want a mod to be able to remove quest items from the inventory the extra clutter is making me go insane or make notes and keys in their own tab like on New Vegas. Other than that I want to see more armor mods maybe some new creatures.

      @Jasper
      To play mods no you won’t have to pay for them.

      To make them yourself you need to own Fallout 4 on PC to use the creation kit as it uses the files from the game to load the data.

      And no creation kit will not be on PS4 or Xbox One as it alone has crashing issues on PC and Creation Kit is just going to only be on PC as it always has been.

      As a modder myself I can asure you of this info in this comment is true.

      @Jasper Bethesda tried doing paid mods on the steam workshop back when skyrim released and us PC players didn’t accept that so they removed it.

      Like I said before this article isn’t very clear on explaining you can make your own mods but you still need to own the game on PC to make those said mods yourself.

    I think this is all lies but to whom it concern every one should take ps4 thorough it out . Buy Xbox or pc now the fun begins. But if ps4 was smart they would sell mods or cheats to ps4 . Owners they could make money . And ps4 gamers could have fun again .instead of crying about it like me . Right now ps4 sucks. Wish I had the money for a Xbox or pc . Hate my ps4 . Don’t really play it anymore.

    This is something everyone is leaving out and should be in you list!
