Bethesda Softworks has launched mod support in open beta for the PC version of Fallout 4 via an update to the post-apocalypse game on Steam. Support for mods on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game is due sometime in May.
In a blog post, Bethesda stated:
For Fallout 4, our goal was to make Mods easier and more accessible than ever before – for both the creators and the players. By building an all-new system with Bethesda.net we've made a huge leap forward in achieving that. You can now browse and search for the latest and greatest Mods, choose your favorites, post feedback, and install them – all within the game. Simply select Mods from the main menu, and start browsing.
While all versions of the game will soon be able to install and play mods in Fallout 4, people who want to actually make them are confined to the PC. You can download the Creation Kit mod tools via the Bethesda.net launcher right now.
