Fallout fans on the Playstation 4 are going to have to wait a bit longer for Fallout 4 PS4 mods to come to their consoles. Bethesda is reporting yet more problems with making the same software that works fine on the Xbox One run on the Playstation 4. The Xbox One got Fallout 4 mods several weeks ago.
The news came from Bethesda’s official Twitter page earlier today. The tweet in question said that the Fallout 4 PS4 mods beta has been delayed yet again. Previously, the mod beta had been delayed due to performance and memory problems. However, this time the tweet gave no specific reason as to why the mods had been delayed.
This is in stark contrast to when Bethesda put up mods on the Xbox One. The beta there went up without any real flaws in April, while the official add-on to allow mods went up in May. Whatever is preventing Bethesda from adding Fallout 4 PS4 mods, however, seems to be far more complicated than what the Xbox One had in mind.
The original intent of Fallout 4 mods now being playable on consoles was so that console players could take part in the expansive modding community for the Fallout games. Fallout 4 has only been released for around seven months and already a large number of mods have been released for it. These mods give players everything from custom weapons to unique quests, or stripping everyone naked or even something as mundane as giving you infinite building materials to beef up settlements.
At the same time, Bethesda has made it impossible for mod users on consoles to earn trophies and achievements with mods active, for the sake of game balance.
Hopefully, Bethesda will be able to get Fallout 4 PS4 mods up and running soon, so that Playstation 4 players can take part in all of the fun that Xbox One and PC players are having.
