Fallout 4 mod support for consoles was, for my money, one of the most interesting announcements at E3 last year. Surely I wasn’t the only one wondering what was going on with that?
Turns out it’s still incoming, and we’ll most likely see it in the first half of 2016.
In an interview with Game Informer Todd Howard confirmed that mod support is still in the works and it should be out after the first batch of Fallout 4 DLC.
Our goal is between the first two DLCs. It’ll go up at that time on PC. In April. All of that stuff will go up on PC. People are beta testing it. There’ll be a lag on consoles. We want to get it up on PC and have it work. It’ll probably be a good month before it hits Xbox One, and another month for PlayStation 4.
So there you have it. Xbox One will be first, most likely sometime in May/June, with PlayStation 4 mod support most likely following a month afterwards.
As always with these things, the release date tends to be a bit fluid. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this pushed back but hopefully we’ll see mods on console sooner rather than later.
