Fallout 4 mod tools beta available now for Windows PC gamers

Haven’t played Fallout 4 in a while? Well, now is the time to get back to it — but only if you play the game on a Windows machine. Apparently, those who own the Windows version of Fallout 4 will be given the chance to beta test the mod tools system.

Bethesda, the developers behind Fallout 4, recently announced that Fallout 4 players on Windows can give the mod tools a test drive right now. The company had the tools in closed beta for the majority of April and it appears that things went well.

To create mods, players are required to use the Creation Kit, a suite of key tools designed to make it easier for players to create mods. Folks won’t have to know much about programming to get a mod up and running, but those who do will likely be more creative.

Before anything, PC players on Windows are asked to update Fallout 4 to version 1.5 beta. From here, it will be possible to access, search for, and install mods.

If you want to try making Mods (and we think everybody should), the Creation Kit – the same tool that we used to create Fallout 4 – is a free download via the Bethesda.net launcher. You can check out the Creation Kit Wiki, our online documentation and help file, for more details and tips on how to make them.

What about the Xbox One version of the Creative Kit? No worries: mod tools are slated for May of this year.

“For console players, Mods will be coming to Xbox One in May and PlayStation 4 in June. We have a lot to do yet, but we hope it changes console gaming the way it has changed PC,” according to Bethesda.

We can’t wait to see what players come up with in the coming days and weeks.
