Fallout fans are concerned with modding in some of their favorite things when it comes to the series, and as such, those interested in the upcoming Fallout 76 have been asking the all-important question: Will Fallout 76 have mods?
PC Gamer has something of an answer to that, mined from a snippet taken from Bethesda's Todd Howard's interview with Geoff Keighley. Howard confirmed that the game will not launch with mod support, but the team is "committed" to eventually adding them to the game in the near future. During the same interview, he also mentioned the The Elder Scrolls VI is indeed still in pre-production status.
Howard said, even though the team is "100 percent committed" to getting mods working in Fallout 76, being able to launch with a "well-running, robust service" means waiting for the best time to get them into the game so they can make sure everything works perfectly.
“We’re currently still designing what that service looks like”, he said, “you’ll be able to have your own private world and be able to mod it and do all of that”.
Fallout 76 is currently on track for a November 14 launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
