Bethesda are ready to introduce Fallout 4 mods for PS4 after launching them for the Xbox One in May. Ahead of the release, the studio unveiled their latest update for Fallout 4’s PC creation kit, which will prepare the game for a closed beta test on the PS4, involving the aforementioned mods.
The update is available for PC players to download, and will allow for PS4 mods to be uploaded to Bethesda.net. However, there are a few issues with these mods, as detailed by Bethesda’s website.
For one, sound files don’t run on the PS4 due to them being on a different format. Compared to Fallout 4 mods on Xbox One having a mod limit of 2GB, the PS4 only has 900 MB of space. Other issues include memory and performance problems due to PC texture usage. Bethesda acknowledges these concerns and said that they were working with Sony to find solutions ahead of the program’s release on PS4.
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.
The closed beta is ‘close to ready’ for the game’s PS4 mods. You will be invited to the PS4 mods closed beta forums ‘to help with testing’, if you create a mod on PC, and upload it to Bethesda.net. For more updates, stay tuned to Bethesda’s official website.
