Bethesda is preparing a closed beta to test user made mods for Fallout 4 on the PS4. The problem is that as of right now, those mods can only be half as large as those for the Xbox One version of the game.
Allowing user generated mods is a considerable enhancement to an already top notch title, but historically, is a privilege enjoyed mostly by PC gamers. Fortunately, Bethesda has decided to grant the opportunity to console gamers as well, throwing the doors open for creators and fans of the series alike.
A new PS4 update is in the works that will support additional content created by Fallout 4’s dedicated modding community, and will allow modders to upload their work to BethesdaNet to prepare for the beta test. Modding has already been tested and implemented on the Xbox One, and its gamers have gotten to enjoy a breadth of new material. While those playing on Microsoft’s console can upload mods as large as 2GB, PS4 users will have a size limit of 900 MB. Hopefully, this limitation will only last as long as the beta does, but until then, vault dwellers will have to deal with a considerable restriction.
The modified creations will offer a significant amount of new features to the game, giving fans even more reasons to step out into the wasteland. The creativity of some amateurs is often as impressive as what full time developers can come up with. Sometimes even more so. Allowing console gamers access to mods is always a fantastic way to increase the life of a game and we’re excited to see what PS4 users conjure up in the weeks to come.
