Fallout 4: No Paid Mods Are Being Planned by Bethesda

Fallout 4

As Bethesda and Steam took the leap and announced paid mods on their service (albeit to the dismay of many, and although it later got retracted), the next question that comes to mind is whether any of the major upcoming games would support paid mods.

Talking of, one of the biggest games that made it to E3 2015 was Fallout 4; which coincidentally is a Bethesda title and also looks to go big with mods. So will the game also support paid mods?

If you ask Bethesda, they will say that they have “currently no plans” of anything like that.

To be exact, this was revealed by Todd Howard, the game director for Fallout 4 while discussing the game with a German website.

Naturally, the statement that Howard gave in the interview has been published in German language and so I am only giving you the online translation that I got for it:

How long was the online payment system? 24 Hours? I can only speak for the present time, but currently there are no plans for a payment system.

Just to be clear, some websites are reporting that this was a statement in relation to microtransations, but that is not the case, the question referred specifically to paid mods in Skyrim.

It is true that Steam’s experiment with paid mods did not last long and they were quick to respond to fan protests against it.

The way I look at it, Bethesda is trying to play safe for now and does not want to indulge in something controversial like the Steam paid mods when it comes to Fallout 4.
