Fallout 4's mod support on all platforms is on the way


PC: April, Xbox One: May, PS4: June

Bethesda games aren’t really Bethesda games until you’ve modded them up the wazoo. Before launch, Bethesda made a big deal out of Fallout 4 being the first time console players will be able to experience the rush of adding an army of anime catgirls to the wasteland, yet almost five months since launch and there’s still no official modding support for any platform.

But in an interview with Game Informer, Bethesda’s Todd Howard announced that that will be changing in the coming months, with official mod support rolling out in stages between two of the three currently announced DLCs. PC will be getting it in April, Xbox One in May, and PS4 in June:

Our goal is between the first two DLCs. It’ll go up at that time on PC. In April. All of that stuff will go up on PC. People are beta testing it. There’ll be a lag on consoles. We want to get it up on PC and have it work. It’ll probably be a good month before it hits Xbox One, and another month for PlayStation 4.

While there are mods available for Fallout 4 on PC already, none of them are officially supported. Official tools will make the process a lot simpler for everyone, with easier mod creation, easier sharing, and easier installation.

Give it a few months, and you will be able to look at the chaos you hath wrought through your army of Thomas the Tank Engines, and the wait will have been entirely worth it.
