In an interview with Game Informer Fallout 4 director Todd Howard informed fans of the game of Bethesda’s plan for official mod support for Fallout 4.
Howard revealed that official mod support will come after the release of Fallout 4’s first DLC, Automatron. Howard added that it will be a month or so before mods come to the Xbox One version, and a month after that mods are expected to land on PS4.
Even though there is no official mod support, there are a wide array of mods available for Fallout 4 on PC including those which change the appearance of your character to those from games such as Metal Gear Solid V and The Witcher 3. However my personal favourite is the one that replaces the sound of the minigun being fired with Spongebob’s laugh.
However it’s still unclear how PC mods will work on console. Previously in an interview with Microsoft’s Major Nelson Bethesda marketing executive Pete Hines explained the process a little.
“We want to do it in a way that’s easy,” Hines said. “This is not about, ‘You have to have a PC,’ ‘You have to do it yourself.’ The idea is you go to play the game, there’s a menu option, you click on it, and there’s a bunch of stuff for you to download. And you click on the stuff that you want and you start playing a game with these new mods. So we want it to be a really streamlined, fun experience. There’s still specifics that we have to work out. It’s part of our post-launch plan.”
