Bethesda – the company responsible for the Fallout game series – has just announced that it has rolled out a new update for Fallout 4 for PC. However, Xbox One users will get the update within a few days.
The update goes by the version number 4 1.7.22 and it was designed to fix some issues with mods.
At the same time, Bethesda VP Pete Hines has also mentioned something about the 2 GB storage limit for game mods on Xbox One. It appears that this storage limit is not something imposed by Bethesda. The limit is set by Microsoft – the company responsible for the Xbox consoles.
This 2GB storage limit has long been a problem gamers have complained about as they were quite concerned that it would apply cumulatively to Fallout 4 and Skyrim Remastered. However, Hine reassured them that each game has its own 2 GB of storage space allocated for mods.
There is however, a more pressing mods issue that is affecting the Skyrim Remastered and Fallout 4 versions for PS4. It appears that despite confirming that they have developed the mods for the game, Bethesda was unable to implement them. The reason why that happened, according to the company, is Sony’s refusal. Sony is the company that manufactures the PlayStation consoles and it appears that they did not accept Bethesda’s mods proposal.
But there are some fans of the games that say that Bethesda is to blame for this because they signed an exclusivity contract with Microsoft and that they are unjustly pinning the blame on Sony.
Pete Hines denied the claims and went on to tweet that they are still working on a solution for the PS4 mods problem and that they will try to offer some kind of mod support but that they can’t get into specifics.
