Fallout 4 patch 1.8 is on its way to Xbox One and PS4 and the biggest feature to be included in the patch is Fallout 4 PS4 mod support.
Adding Fallout 4 PS4 mod support has been a difficult journey for Bethesda since the support was originally intended to be made available in Summer but is still not in place yet.
A few months ago, the company announced that mods on Sony’s console might not be possible any more since the hardware manufacturer refused permission.
Last month however, Bethesda announced that Fallout 4 PS4 mod support is back on track as they have figured out a way to add the feature, although the mods will be unable to use external assets so creators will not have as much freedom as they do when creating mods for PC or Xbox One.
The patch 1.8 for Fallout 4 will finally be adding that limited mod support to PlayStation 4 alongside some fixes for the game as listed below:
- Fixed an issue in which some sound effects would not persist after reloading in an area
- Resolved an occasional crash when exiting to the Main Menu, and trying to start a New Game
- Fixed an issues with spaces in Mods search queries
- A Sentry Bot firing dual Gatling Lasers will no longer cause the audio to cut out
The patch is already live on the PC version of the game while the Xbox One and PS4 are in certification and should be available soon. The full patch notes can be seen here.
PlayStation 4 users will need to make an account on Bethesda.net before they can use Fallout 4 mods on their consoles as the only way to download those mods is through the official Bethesda portal.
A similar mod support is also planned and in development for the recently released Skyrim Remastered Edition.
