When Bethesda released Fallout 4 with the blessing for mods, the whole gaming community rejoiced. It was a groundbreaking step for Fallout 4 devs to release a game and give the modding community the go-signal to tweak and play around with the mechanics of their title. This has propelled Fallout 4 to becoming one of the most appreciated and well-loved titles of the year (yes, Rockstar, your GTA is now a thing of the past).
We welcome the news that this coming week, Fallout 4 mods are finally coming to the Xbox One. It has been a couple of months already since Fallout 4 released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 and since last week, Fallout 4 mods have been going through beta testing on the Xbox One platform. When the Fallout 4 mods finally become available to Xbox One users this coming Tuesday, as previously reported by Inquisitr, this will mark the first time that latest-gen console owners will be able to download and install mods on their systems. In fact, it's so legit that Fallout players can actually load the Fallout 4 mods they are downloading right on the game menu.
