Fallout 4 Mods Are Officially Out on Xbox One

And just like that, mods received official support on consoles for the first time ever with the latest update to Fallout 4. The update adds a new...

    Bethesda Softworks is not only known for creating some of the best adventure RPGs out there, they're also known for fostering the most expansive modding community. Prior to an update released today for Fallout 4, that modding community was strictly limited to PC gamers that shared their content across modding platforms, including the Steam Workshop. The update released today allows for approved mods to be displayed, downloaded, and used on any Xbox One. Once the update is installed, all you'll need to do is select the new "Mods" tab in the main menu, create a Bethesda.net login, and start browsing.

    Although this is the first time that mods have received official support on any console, that hasn't stopped Microsoft and Xbox from seeing this to its fullest potential. Bethesda will be seeing to it that mods containing nudity and potential copyright infringements are removed, but for the most part, they are staying out of it and letting the modding community do its thing. This can be a double-edged sword, however, as mods do alter game files and assets, so problems and conflicts are unfortunately inevitable when modding.

    As such, when mods are installed and enabled, a back-up save will be created of your previous saves so that if anything happens, you can simply revert to your files that do not have any modded content in them. Additionally, achievements will not be available when mods are installed to prevent Xbox One owners from boosting their gamer score.

    The update released earlier today for Fallout 4 has finally enabled mods on consoles, something that most thought would never happen. What are some of your favorite mods so far, or some of the mods you've been waiting to try out with this update?

    Why would you want to use the MODS if it negates getting any Achievements? Or Maybe the Achievements is strictly a Microsoft gimmick.
    1. Feyfolken
      You could just get all the achievements in a separate play through. On PC, there is a mod that enables achievements even in modded play throughs.

      achievements don't mean anything. Simply a side hobby plus if you already played through Fallout legit you're bound to have like 900-1000 gamerscore from it.

    It's a good idea they're finally allowing this on consoles, will there be a limit to how many you can run considering the hardware of the xbox?

      Well. Maybe so, but I'm talking from the standpoint of the average person. I think mods from Nexus were typically much larger for me as well.
    3. Weeb
      Yeah I guess if you were wanting to mod bethesda games you would have bought a pc long ago, this is pretty neat for the average person. Have they released the criteria for approval?
    4. Red58
      They may have, I'm not 100% sure. I really think they only things they aren't allowing is nudity (and things of that nature) and content from other games. As well as DLC, which ironically someone uploaded the beta of Far Harbor, it got taken down soon after though lol.

    Pretty sad about any not having n*** mods though... (Could've been hidden behind an 18+ check)

      Why would it need to be behind an 18+ check, the game is only supposed to be played by people of that age anyways.....
    3. PSGAndr3w
      Weeb Because there's a lot of under-age gamers playing Fallout 4. Myself being one of them. The age ratings don't normally factor into someone buying a game.
    4. Weeb
      The point I'm trying to make is they shouldn't ban 18+ content on an 18+ game, because if you already have the game you should be 18, not like you wouldn't just fake your age to download 18+ content anyway
