Today developer Bethesda has released an open beta for modding in the PC version of the post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 4. The update works with the new Fallout 4 Creation Kit, which enables fans and players to build content for the game. Now you can browse mods from within the game, create new quest, weapons and many others using a new in-game suite of tools; “It allows you to touch almost anything you can imagine,”said the developer.
Our goal was to make mods easier and more accessible than ever before, for both the creators and the players
According to Bethesda, to access the beta you’ll need to follow these steps:
- 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
Earlier on, mods were only supported in the PC version of Fallout 4, but this is the very first time a major release is getting support for modding on consoles “For console players, mods will be coming to Xbox One in May and PlayStation 4 in June,” reads a press release from Bethesda. “We have a lot to do yet, but we hope it changes console gaming the way it has changed PC.”
Fallout is a series of post-apocalyptic role-playing video games. It was created by Interplay Entertainment. Although the series is set during the 22nd and 23rd centuries, its atompunk retrofuturistic setting and artwork are influenced by the post-war culture of 1950s America, and its combination of hope for the promises of technology, and lurking fear of nuclear annihilation. The latest of the series Fallout 4 is developed by Bethesda Game Studios. The game was released on November 10, 2015. The game takes place in Boston, Massachusetts, in the year 2287, ten years after the events of Fallout 3 and 210 years after the Sino-American war, which was fought over natural resources.
