Fallout 4 mod support on PlayStation 4 has been delayed0 Comments
There was a lot of excitement for console players of Fallout 4 when Bethesda announced that mod support was about to come to their platform of choice. The Xbox One mods seem to be working well enough, but unfortunately the PS4 team seems to have been struggling to get them to function properly. Mod support was supposed to have been launched last month, but now it has been delayed.

This announcement comes hot on the heels of an influx news regarding Bethesda's trouble with mod support on the console, including some rather serious problems including memory and performance issues. Normally gamers might assume that there are simply kinks to work out, but since Bethesda has delayed the support — and since they haven't given any proper explanation as to why — it's fairly safe to assume the issues are fairly substantial.
Seeing as how mod support is up and running mostly without issue on the PC and Xbox One, these troubles are absolutely down to the PlayStation 4 itself. It was assumed that the infrastructure behind PC and Xbox One mods would be largely the same for the PS4, but given the delays and issues, that may no longer be the case. Also unknown is what this might mean for the Skyim remaster set to release later this year; aside from overhauled graphics, mod support is one of the game's biggest selling points. Here's to hoping we hear back from Bethesda soon.
