According to Bethesda, console players will be able to enjoy mods on Xbox One in May and PlayStation 4 in June—which is pretty soon!

Players on PC can actually download a beta for the modding tools now. Here’s how:

  • Log into Steam
  • Right Click on Fallout 4 in your Library
  • Select Settings
  • Select Betas
  • A drop down menu will appear. Select beta
  • Select OK
  • Wait a few minutes and Fallout 4 should update
  • When done, Fallout 4 should appear as Fallout 4 [Beta] in your Library

With these tools, players will be able to create all sorts of things, from quests, environments, dialogue, outfits and more. Better yet, Fallout 4 will have an in-game interface that will allow you to sort through all the offerings, bookmarking and favoriting as you please:

Last year, Bethesda claimed that console mods won’t have much of an approval process. It remains to be seen whether or not this means consoles will turn into a wild west in the same way PC mods have, though.

If you’d like, you can get started creating stuff for Fallout 4 right now. Provided you have a PC, of course:

If you want to try making Mods (and we think everybody should), the Creation Kit – the same tool that we used to create Fallout 4 – is a free download via the Bethesda.net launcher. You can check out the Creation Kit Wiki, our online documentation and help file, for more details and tips on how to make them.
