Fallout 4 mods will be on consoles by June

Bethesda has released an open beta version of Fallout 4’s free Creation Kit, allowing all interested parties to download it and create their own official mods. Console players will also be able to download and play mods over the coming months if everything goes according to plan.

Bethesda announced via a new post on its website that the Creation Kit’s closed beta has officially come to an end, and now the open beta is in full effect. Fallout 4 PC players will need to update their game to version 1.5 if they haven’t already done so in order to properly test the mods they build, and they can do so by following the below steps:

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

The post also confirms the release windows for mod support on consoles. Thanks to Microsoft’s exclusivity deal with Bethesda, mods will be coming first to Xbox One sometime in May, and to PlayStation 4 sometime in June. If you want to see some of the game’s mods in action, be sure to give the below video a watch.
