Bethesda’s games have always been known for their thriving modding communities. That’s why it was surprising to see Fallout 4 launched without any official mod support or creation tools.
Back in February of this year, Bethesda announced that Fallout 4’s official mod support would arrive in April.
It’s the end of April, and Fallout 4 has officially delivered on that promise.
In a blog post announcing the arrival of official modding tools, Bethesda said that gamers could now browse through mods by clicking on “Mods” from the in-game menu. Or, you can browse for mods online at the official Bethesda website.
Bethesda also introduced the news through a YouTube video here:

How to Try Modding for Yourself

Most of us will be happy to just download mods. However, if you want to try your hand at creating your own mods, then you’ll want to download the Creation Kit via the launcher.
Bethesda also recommends using the Creation Kit Wiki (a third party site filled with modding information) as a great source for getting started with modifying Fallout 4.

Mods Currently Only Available on PC Through Steam

The mods are officially still in beta form. To get the update for Fallout 4, you’ll need to log into Steam, right-click on Fallout 4 in your library, then click Properties – Betas. Select Beta from the dropdown menu, then you should see your installation update start within minutes.

This time around, mods aren’t just for PC gamers: Bethesda has announced that mod support will be available on Xbox One in May and PlayStation 4 in June.
Of course, console gamers will never be able to access the huge repository of unofficial mods available through the Nexus Mods community. PC gamers will always have that.
Nevertheless, it’s good to see Bethesda supporting the community that makes its games endlessly repayable.
