It’s finally here: modding tools for Fallout 4 have arrived… sort of. The modding support tools or Creation Kit is currently restricted to PC players as of now, but will soon arrive to console folks this June. This will allow modders and players around to add in whatever they feel like implementing in the world of Fallout 4, which was announced on the official Bethesda’s blog page.
Taking a look over at Bethesda’s blog, Fallout 4 now features in-game mod support for PC players. This currently stands in its Open Beta stage, which provides the necessary functions to change the game up like Skyrim and other past Bethesda games with mod support.
“Mods and the players who create them have always been an important part of our games, going all the way back to Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls Construction Set. We believe that our games become something much more special, when we put the power of creation in your hands. New quests, environments, characters, dialogue, outfits, weapons and more – with Mods, the possibilities of what you can do are endless. You are creating new experiences that enhance and take our games into amazing and surprising new directions.”
Now some might be a little confused about the whole console mod support. To clarify the situation, Xbox One players will get the modding tools first sometime in May, while PS4 players will get it later sometime in June. This information arrives directly from Bethesda’s blog, meaning that given dates shouldn’t change, letting players mod the game when the dates arrive.
To further elaborate on the matter, some of the team over at Bethesda took the time to announce the mod support, and thank their community for adding their input and style into the world of Fallout 4. You can catch Todd Howard (or Godd Howard) in the announcement video explaining the Creation Kit below.
If you can’t wait and want to join in now, you can head on over to bethesda.net to learn more about the Creation Kit and how to mod Fallout 4, which is in the note that they posted up on their site below.
“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.”
I can only image the game-changing mods that will hit the wasteland, which I image will be pretty cool. As noted above, PC players currently have access to the Open Beta modding tools, while Xbox One and PS4 players will get the modding tools in May and June.
