Fallout 4 has been out for a few months now and while plenty of mods have come out on the PC in that time, we still don’t have the official tools for more in-depth creations just yet. However, they are coming soon alongside future DLC for the game, in fact, the official mod tools are currently set to arrive in April.
Speaking in an interview with Game Informer, Fallout 4’s game director, Todd Howard said: “Our goal is to release [mod tools] 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 modding tools will roll out on the PC in April. Mod support is planned for the consoles as well but that won’t be arriving until a bit later, alongside the launch of Bethesda.net, which will serve as a hub for cross-platform mods.
He also confirmed that the game’s new survival mode, which will be coming this year as part of a free update, will be beta tested on the PC ahead of time before launching to everyone across all three platforms.
KitGuru Says: We’ve already seen quite a few mods for Fallout 4 on the PC but when the mod tools hit, we will get to see some larger, more in-depth projects take shape. Have any of you tried Fallout 4 mods so far? Is there any you would recommend?
