Mods y’all. Nothing but mods as far as the eye can see. That’s at least true on the PC. A rough estimate puts more than 1,200 mods up for the PC version of Fallout 4. Now, Xbox One players will soon get a taste of that.
Coming this Tuesday, March 31, mod support for the Xbox One version of Fallout 4 will be a reality. Bethesda earlier today announced the news via a very interesting Twitch stream. Mods have been in beta for the last week or so for Microsoft’s newest console, something a lot of us were very jealous of. PC players have been tinkering with them since the game practically dropped.
The mods for Xbox will work very much like they do for PC. There will be a limit of 2GB to download. Some of them will be a scant 1mb while others may run all the way up to 500mb. Just depends on how froggy you want to be. The different things one can do will be something simple as new NPC skins to new weapons all the way to new areas of the map. No two ways to cut it, this is going to be awesome!

Mods will be downloaded in game through a menu. There won’t be the added step of going to a website to find and then download the mod you want. Xbox One players do need to sign up with a Bethesda.net account though to help keep track of what they do end up using. Simple enough and I’m sure most of us already have one anyways, yes?
PlayStation 4 players are left in the cold right now for mods. Bethesda plans on bringing them over sometime this June but can’t nail down an exact date. Sorry PS4 peeps, I know you want them just as bad!
Alright Xbox One loving geeks, which ones do you plan on downloading first? If it’s available, I want the Macho Man Randy Savage mod that changes Deathclaws into the late wrestler. That looked like my kind of party. I’m hearing there will be just shy of 700 downloadables available so get ready!
