Fallout 4 Console Mods Releasing In The Next Two Months

Here's your first look at Fallout 4's in-game modding tools. Soon, everyone will be able to enjoy the wonders of a wasteland full of Thomas The Tank Engines and naked vault dwellers. Hooray. According to Bethesda, console players will be able to enjoy mods on Xbox One in May and PlayStation 4 in June — which is pretty soon!

Players on PC can actually download a beta for the modding tools now. Here's how:

  • 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.

With these tools, players will be able to create all sorts of things, including quests, environments, dialogue and outfits. Better yet, Fallout 4 will have an in-game interface that will allow you to sort through all the offerings, bookmarking and favouriting as you please:

Last year, Bethesda claimed that console mods won't have much of an approval process. It remains to be seen whether or not this means consoles will turn into a wild west in the same way PC mods have, though.

If you'd like, you can get started creating stuff for Fallout 4 right now. Provided you have a PC, of course:

If you want to try making Mods (and we think everybody should), the Creation Kit — the same tool that we used to create Fallout 4 — is a free download via the Bethesda.net launcher. You can check out the Creation Kit Wiki, our online documentation and help file, for more details and tips on how to make them.

    How are they gonna hide all the naked boobies mods from the children?

      I believe only Bethesda selected mods will make it onto consoles

      easy do it like they do on the home page age gate, blocked pics for underage.

        You mean like on Steam?

    Do I need a copy of fallout 4 on pc to create mods through the creation kit? only ask cause I got fo4 on ps4 and I'm too poor to buy it again just to make my own mods.

      Only on PC for now.
      While the creation kit is still in beta, a Steam account with a purchased copy of FO4 is the only way to get it at the moment.
      Regardless of platform, for the CK to work it needs FO4 installed alongside because they share assets, files, etc.
      I do hope that consoles get a version of the CK; getting more people into modding is never a bad thing in my book.
      That said, as someone one who has dabbled in some minor CK modding myself, using it on a console with their controllers would be a nightmare.

        I guess it makes sense about the shared assets, cheers.
        Also it's not to hard to get a wireless kb and m on a ps4 either which would help with modding on a console, if that option were avaliable of course

    Soon, everyone will be able to enjoy the wonders of a wasteland full of Thomas The Tank Engines and naked vault dwellers.

    Wasn't it that the two things you couldn't do with console mods was licensed material and nudity?

    it's hilarious that they felt the need to create an ad for modding tools which never had any previous advertising.

    Paid mods here we come /yawn
