Bethesda Will Be Streaming Fallout 4 Mods on Xbox One Tomorrow
In order to promote that Fallout 4 console players will be able to upload mods onto their own copies of Fallout 4, Bethesda will be streaming a collection of Fallout 4 mods tomorrow on Xbox One, according to their Twitter earlier today.
The stream, which will be running on Twitch at 4 PM Eastern Time, will be showing off some of the mods that people have made for the game, all of which will be able to be put into the Fallout 4 copies of console gamers.
Normally console versions of video games are excluded from having mods added to them due to the coding requirements needed to mod a game, but with Bethesda’s kit, Fallout 4 mods will be able to be added. The game has had a wide variety of mods added to it ever since it released last November, ranging from various weapons and outfits to new quests and other things.
While there’s no telling what Fallout 4 mods that Bethesda will put on the Xbox One copy of Fallout 4 they’ll be using, hopefully we’ll get to see the full effect of what the community can do, ranging from whacky weapons to new quests, and may even a conversion mod or two, if we’re lucky.
The creation kit that Bethesda has been working on in order to allow modding on Fallout 4 was released for PC platforms a few weeks ago, but the Fallout 4 mod creation kit for the Xbox One still has to be announced sometime this month, and it seems like this livestream is the one to watch. Fallout 4 mods for Xbox One and Playstation 4 will, however, still need to be created on the PC before being ported over.
All the same, you won’t be able to get too crazy with your mods when they come out. Activating a mod on Fallout 4 will disable your ability to get achievements, much like other bonus modes in other console games that disable achievements and progress when activated.
