Bethesda promised to bring mods to both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Fallout 4. However, some technical difficulties are keeping part of that pledge from coming true. Today on Twitter, Bethesda officially announced a PlayStation 4 mod support delay and said it will update followers when possible, specifically stating the closed beta won’t begin after 1.5.4. game update.
Back on June 15, 2016, Bethesda updated the Fallout 4 Creation Kit so PC modders could begin uploading PlayStation 4 mods. At the time, four major issues were detailed. The mod storage limit was capped at 900MB, sounds were supported due to the PlayStation 4’s proprietary sound format, and there could be memory and performance issues due to PC texture usage. The company then said Fallout 4 update 1.5.4., the patch coming to consoles this week, would be a necessary download for the PlayStation 4 mod closed beta.
Fallout 4 is immediately available. Both the Windows PC and Xbox One versions offer mod support, though the Xbox One has a 2GB storage limit.
