Buckle up Fallout fans, Game developer Bethesda Game Studios has announced that PlayStation 4 will soon get console mods for the post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 4. This is sure to take everyone out for a wild ride, or make that a wild chase for the next Water Chip.
Incorporating console mods for the Sony platform hasn’t always been quick and easy, if the long wait was any indication. The mods were supposed to be released late this summer, but was delayed more times than anyone could count. It looked quite hopeless in September, until Bethesda announced in early October that they finally figured out how to deliver the mod to support the game on PlayStation 4.
There were still several restrictions, particularly with the use of external assets. But the end, it seems, is almost here. The game developer has recently announced that fans can now update their respective Creation Kits by logging into their games. This is usually done in preparation for the upcoming mods.
In a tweet, Bethesda said that the “next title update for Fallout 4 will add PS4 Mod Support”, and should be released in November. The title’s next full update, which is version 1.8, is currently being certified and primed to receive the new mods. It will be rolled out once the studio finishes work on it. The same update comes with patch notes and other features designed to address in-game issues.
When the PlayStation 4 mods will be implemented, however, the major obstacle still stands. That is, use of internal assets is still not allowed. So it’s basically similar to what happened to the PS4 version of Skyrim: Special Edition. Players can only use in-game aspects. For now, it is all that Bethesda can offer, which is better than nothing.
Besides, if the game studio will be able to provide official mod support for PS4, it will be easier to release updates and patches in the future. Fans can also expect add-ons and DLCs for Fallout 4.
When exactly in November will the PlayStation 4 mods be released? Let’s all hope it won’t be on the midnight of the 30th. In the meantime, have fun installing Fallout 4 mods on Xbox One.
