Fallout 4

The mods system has always been a very important part of the Fallout 4 experience, and the team over at Bethesda have kept that principle in mind over the last few months. Deservedly so, Bethesda, the developers of Fallout 4, have now announced that Windows gamers can now give Fallout 4’s mod tools a beta test.

After running a closed beta of the feature for much of April, the team has now finally opened up the Creation kit, the suite of tools which will allow PC gamers to create mods for Fallout 4. Using an all-new system powered by Bethesda.net, the goal, according to Bethesda, is to make mods easier and more accessible for both the creators and the players.

PC players, however, must first update to the Fallout 4 version 1.5 beta to install, access, search and mark mods as favorites from the main menu. To do this through Steam  you can follow the following steps:

  1. Log into Steam
  2. Right click on Fallout 4 in your Library
  3. Select Settings
  4. Select Betas
  5. From the drop down meny, select beta
  6. Select OK
  7. Wait a few mintes for Fallout 4 to update

If you are on Xbox One these mods will be heading your way in May. Meanwhile, PlayStation 4 gamers can expect the mods in June.
