Fallout 4 is getting mods on consoles starting in May


Xbox One in May, PS4 in June

Oh, right! Bethesda is planning to support mods in Fallout 4 on consoles. That’ll happen sometime in May for Xbox One, and then in June for PlayStation 4, the studio has announced.

PC players can mess around with the Creation Kit now while it’s in open beta. To get in on that fun and give the rest of us a reason to revisit the game to see your beautiful nonsense, do the following:

  • Log into Steam
  • Right Click on Fallout 4 in your Library
  • Select Settings
  • Select Betas
  • A drop down menu will appear. Select beta
  • Select OK
  • Wait a few minutes and Fallout 4 should update
  • When done, Fallout 4 should appear as Fallout 4 [Beta] in your Library

Frankly, I’m more interested in mods on consoles than I am in what should be the game’s best DLC, Far Harbor. Bethesda says it hopes modding “changes console gaming the way it has changed PC.”

Five stars? Nice try, Preston.
