Fallout 4 [official site] players have made oodles of cracking mods for the post-apocalyptic RPG since it launched in November, and developers Bethesda haven’t even released official mod tools yet. Just imagine the wonders we might see when they do! I’m imagining a mod which adds a collectible range of mugs with humourous workplace slogans. Not up to much today, the old imagination. Bethesda had said before that ‘Creation Kit’ mod tools would come early in 2016, and now we have a mirror specific timeframe: April.
“Our goal is between the first two DLCs,” Bethesda’s Todd Howard told Game Informer. “It’ll go up at that time on PC. In April. All of that stuff will go up on PC. People are beta testing it.”
Those first two DLCs, by the way, are a customisable robot buddy and a gladiatorial combat arena. After those, Bethesda are working on a new island to explore with new storybits and whatnot, and other yet-unrevealed DLC packs.
If you want new official things now, now, now, you can have a gander at the public beta version of patch 1.4. Along with performance improvements and bug fixes, it’ll bring new decorative bits to customise settlements.
It is nice that the console versions will be able to use mods made on PC. Howard says support for that will probably arrive on Xbox One a month after the PC mod tools, then PlayStation will get it another month later.
Hang in there, baby!
