‘Fallout 4’ PS4 Mod Support Still Coming, But Bethesda Won’t Explain The Reason For The Delay
In a recent interview with Metro, Bethesda speaks out on their desire to bring Fallout 4 mods to the PlayStation 4 as “fast as humanly possible” as players continue to wait for the feature to become available on Sony consoles.
When Fallout 4 was first announced just a few months ahead of the game’s release date last year, the fast launch window for the latest installment of the popular post-apocalyptic series wasn’t the only surprise that the team at Bethesda had in store for fans. In order to get gamers even more excited by Fallout 4, the developer was also proud to unveil their plans to bring mod support to console platforms after confirming that Fallout 4 mods would be available on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in addition to the PC version of the game.
With the launch of all six DLC add-ons now available across all platforms, Bethesda has also partially made good on their promise to deliver Fallout 4 mods to console gamers. After releasing first on PC, Fallout 4 mod support did indeed land on Xbox One this past May. Unfortunately, the developer has yet to fully bring mods to all platforms as PlayStation 4 owners are still waiting for the community-created content to launch on the PS4 edition of Fallout 4.Bethesda’s vice president of public relations and marketing, Pete Hines, once again reiterated the developer’s commitment to get Fallout 4 mods released on the PS4 while speaking with Metro during last month’s Gamescom event. When asked if he could elaborate on the cause of the delay, Hines at first simply repeated his previous comments which specified that Fallout 4 mod support was still deep in an evaluation process with Sony.
“All I can say is that it is undergoing an evaluation process and as soon as it’s done, and we have more info, we’re gonna let everyone know.”
Hines refused to give a definitive answer when questioned if the delay was due to a technical problem that needed to be resolved or if Sony was holding back the feature for some reason, but the PR lead did confirm that the developer still hopes to bring Fallout 4 mods to the PlayStation 4 as quickly as they can.
While Fallout 4 mods were always planned to launch on Xbox One first, the separation of release windows was not supposed to be this large. When Xbox One mod support went live in late May, Fallout 4 mods were expected to land on the PS4 in the following month. In the middle of June, the first testing of mod content on the PlayStation 4 showed that there were signs of trouble after news hit that early uploads could only be half as big as those found on the Xbox One.
“It’s definitely not that we’ve decided not to do it, we absolutely, positively want to get PS4 mods out as fast as humanely possible.”
Eventually, months continued to pass with little news regarding the state of Fallout 4 mods on the PlayStation 4. In fact, beyond the occasional reassurance that the content is still under evaluation, fans have had almost no concrete information on when they should expect Fallout 4 mod support to become available on the PS4. As the Inquisitr reported last month, it’s not even guaranteed that Bethesda still plans to hold a public beta test for PS4 mods depending on how the mysterious evaluation process goes.
While it is known that Bethesda does still plan to get Fallout 4 mods on the PlayStation 4, the team seems to want to stay quiet on exactly what the issue is that has caused the extended delay. Are you still waiting for mod support to go live on the PS4 version of Fallout 4 or have you simply moved on to other games?
