Mods can make games better, stranger, or even just prolong their life by adding a ton of cool new shit. Good news then, as Bethesda have confirmed official mod support is coming to the PC version of Fallout 4 in April, with console versions following soon after.
Of course, there have been Fallout 4 mods floating around on PC pretty much since launch, but the official support will make it easier for newbies to make their own.
Director Todd Howard said:
We want to get it up on PC and have it work. It’ll probably be a good month before it hits Xbox One, and another month for PlayStation 4.
So it’ll be a little while before console users can get modding, but at least Bethesda and Howard are taking the time to make sure they get it right.
Fallout 4 mod support should be coming to PC around the same time as the first of three announced DLC packs, which focuses on Pokemon-esque gameplay that involves building your own robot companions.
