Fallout 4 mod support for PS4 will arrive this week

Fallout 4

The very, very long-awaited mod support for Bethesda’s Fallout 4 on Playstation 4 will be arriving this week. It comes as a part of the 1.8 patch for the game, which has been released on PC and arrives at the same time as PS4 on Xbox One.

But of course, there is a downside. Like with Skyrim: Special Edition, the mod support available on PS4 will be less than that of what’s available on Xbox One – which itself is less than PC. So what does that mean? The basic rule is, like with Skyrim, mod creators will not be able to upload any external assets – so no lightsabers or Master Chief outfits for you.

What is included – and can therefore be fiddled around with – is anything that is present in the base game. Mod creators can modify things such as carry weight, where items are available and, if especially creative, create entire new areas – as long as everything used is already present in the game.

Ruaraidh - pronounced Roo-Ree - is a Scottish gamer with the name and games to prove it. He enjoys mostly everything, unless it involves exercise, and much prefers to run around inside a good, open-world RPG, being chased across the lands by a horde of monsters after his sweet loot. When he has made his escape, he will often return to the real world to continue playing anything with a good story - indie or otherwise.
