Mods support for the Xbox One version of Fallout 4 was released this week by Bethesda, and to my knowledge it marks the first time mods appearing on console. However, it seems that Fallout 4 mods on Xbox one are a huge hit, as Bethesda tweeted the number of mods used on Xbox One are way ahead of where the PC community was was they launched the feature earlier this year with the creation kit.
Xbox traffic was 50x the initial Fallout 4 PC mod launch. It’s a new world & just the beginning.
However, Bethesda did not mentioned that how they defined the traffic, but Bethesda is happy with the results. In another tweet from Bethesda:
We tried for 15 years & mods are finally on a console. Check them out. Thanks for your patience and support!
It is important to mention that Fallout 4 mods on Xbox One will not let you earn any achievements as long as they are installed. If you want to earn achievements after using a mod, you will have to uninstall the mod and load a save file from before the installation of the mod.
For playing the mods that make use of Fallout 4 DLCs, you will have to own that DLC. Also there is a 2 GB size restriction on Fallout 4 mods on Xbox One.
Although, as of now mod support in only available on Xbox One, it does not mean that Bethesda has forgotten about PlayStation 4. Bethesda has confirmed that they are still on track to bring mod support on PlayStation 4, along with a teaser that new features for Fallout 4 mod support are in the works, though the company did not provide any details.
Fallout 4 is an open world post apocalyptic RPG game available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
