PlayStation 4 fans of Fallout 4 will have to wait a little bit longer before getting their hands on the mods that Xbox and PC players have access to. Bethesda announced over Twitter today that the PS4’s mod beta, originally due out this week, has been delayed. There isn’t a time frame given on when the beta will hit or why it was delayed as of yet.
With the 1.5.4 update to Fallout 4’s Mod Creation Kit, users gained the ability to upload PS4 mods to Bethesda.net. The update on Bethesda’s site did note some fairly serious sounding issues with PS4 mods, although it’s unknown if any of these issues contributed to the delay. Here’s what the update said:
KNOWN ISSUES WITH PS4 MODS
- PC textures are used. Memory and performance issues may occur. We are working with Sony on optimal texture exporting support in a future update.
- Sound files are currently not supported. PS4 sound format is a proprietary format. We are working with Sony on sound file processing support in a future update.
- PS4 Mod Storage limit is approximately 900 MB at present. Please do not upload mods larger than 900 MB. We are working with Sony to increase this limit.
Mod support for Fallout 4 recently landed on Xbox One in May. The mods themselves are created on PC then published on Bethesda.net where Xbox players can then download them. Once mods become available on PS4, it should be the same process.
