Fallout 4 gets mod support on Xbox with closed beta later this month (update)

New, 4 comments

A lot of people are downloading mods in the meantime

Bethesda Game Studios announced that Fallout 4 on Xbox One will receive mod support following the release of Far Harbor this month. In a tweet, the company confirmed that mods will arrive on the console versions of Fallout 4 in a closed beta for a public release.

Though still undated, the Creation Kit update is planned for consoles in May (on Xbox One first) and June (PlayStation 4). Far Harbor, the next Fallout 4 expansion, launches on Windows PC and both consoles May 19, so Xbox owners can expect the Creation Kit to arrive sometime thereafter.

Fallout players on PC have had access to mod support for the past few weeks; the Creation Kit entered a closed beta in early April, followed by an open beta that same month. The update brings the ability to create their own mods, as well as search for and download them directly from Bethesda.net.

Although the majority of players have only had access to the creation suite since the end of April, Bethesda added on Twitter that Fallout 4 fans have already downloaded mods one million times on Windows PC. Players' creations available on Bethesda.net range from the mundane (a water fountain) to the ultra-important (additional "appealing skin mole" options).

There doesn't seem to be a mod yet to program more names into Codsworth's vocabulary, however. Check out the video below to hear what the robot butler can say.

UpdateBethesda confirmed that mod tools will launch in closed beta on Xbox One next week. An update preparing for the beta launch is now live.

Update #2: Invites to the closed beta are now being sent out, according to Bethesda.
