E3 2015: Fallout 4 on Xbox One can use PC mods

Bethesda took the Xbox stage to announce that PC mods for Fallout 4 will be fully usable on the Xbox One version of the game.

Bethesda came to the Xbox stage for E3 2015 to show some new Fallout 4 gameplay footage. On top of that, a new announcement was put on the table, with PC mods able to cross over to the Xbox One. The Xbox One version of Fallout 4 will be able to access the full list of PC mods available for the PC version of the game and download them at no extra charge.

Even though we'd like there to be full mod support on consoles, this is certainly a step in the right direction as mod support have kept gamers playing Bethesda games, like Fallout 3, New Vegas, and The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, for years after their release. Just how vast mod support will get and where mods can be installed from are yet to be seen, but we're hoping we can help extend the life of Fallout 4 through the use of mods.

Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Probably very limited and I bet the mods need to meet a certain standard before release. Last thing they want is to allow a bunch of kids mod the game to unplayability.

        The article says it will be able to access the full list of mods available for the PC version.

          Probably whatever is released through whatever tools are released by Bethesda... if someone releases some crazy hires texture pack on the Nexus website. I seriously doubt you'll see too many texture replacement mods on the XB1 version.

            I like this idea. The nightmare scenario for me is that modders are only allowed to make mods that work on all systems.

              Skyrim basically had this with Steam Workshop & Skyrim Nexus... i loaded a few mods from the Steam Workshop & the majority from Nexus. I'd imagine the setup will be similar for FO4 at least on the PC side of things.

          What if I want to be a dick and make my mod only available to the PC master race?

          How will you install shit? Installing mods on PC is already a pain in the ass if your installing more than like 5, or especially if you need compatibility patches and shit and mod ordering and all that.

          "full list of mods" as in the Bethesda list of mods that is curated by them and not at all the same as normal FO4 mods. It will require them to have a special mod system and service, which will likely come with it's own set of requirements.

      It's going to be tied to Bethesda's horrible Bethesda.net scheme, isn't it?

        I wouldn't say it is horrible (yet, because it is too early) but yes this is definitely part of it. They need a way to curate mods to some extent so they don't break the game and cost Bethesda support dollars.

      I have a feeling we're in for a Steam - Xbox One integration type of deal. Like Steam Workshop will be available to Xbox One owners or something. How else will they manage the mods? Skyrim was big for the Steam Workshop and Workshop was big for Skyrim. Why abandon that?

      Seems unlikely, but .. maybe not.
