Fallout 4 Looks Great!

Fallout 4 won't have mod support until 2016


It looks like Fallout 4 will not be getting dedicated modding tools until early 2016 as Bethesda says that they are focusing all of their effort into releasing a great game at launch. The company later reiterated that they will deliver dedicated modding tools after launch, but only after the game is done. 

Below is a statement from Pete Hines, Bethesda's marketing director. 


"Our entire focus is on finishing the game. Nobody cares about mods if the game sucks. This has always been our philosophy. We shift energy to construction tools, the creation kit, and all of that stuff once the game is done, and we start to figure out what all of that is going to look like".

By developing it's modding tools after the game allows the developer to focus their effort on delivering a more stable and better performing Fallout 4, which will make it an even better game on which to build mods. 

Bethesda also have stated that they wish to make modding tools which will work for all platforms, but right now those tools do not even exist. Bethesda is clearly being very ambitious with this release. 


"The idea is that [the modding tools] will work on all platforms, but the truth is the system doesn't exist. It's still being built and worked on and it's going to take awhile. It's going to take clearly into next year because we can't even start it"

So about a month then?

It'll probably take that long or longer to fully complete it properly so I've got no issues with that

Edit honestly this news part of the forum becomes more and more like sodding Yahoo! every day.

People argue on there too.Quote

I'd doubt they would do this if they weren't planning on releasing cross platform support for mods. It'll probably be some awful gimped program that really limits creativity because muh consoles.

Then again, it seems to be quite a common thing to do these days. Not the worse thing in the world IMO.Quote
