It’s been a while now since we’ve heard anything about Fallout 4 mods on PS4, and it looks like we may have to wait a while longer.
The ability for Fallout 4 players on consoles to enjoy mods just like their PC brethren, has been one of the biggest features of the game.
Though the service successfully launched on Xbox One over two months ago, PlayStation 4 owners have yet to see it. Bethesda noted a number of big limitations it has run into with Sony and the PS4, but even that was a long while ago.
Some of these issues include a file size limit of 900 MB, sound files in mods not being compatible with the console’s OS, and other problems when working with PC textures, something most mods will be using.
Since then, Bethesda hasn’t yet released a public beta for mods on PS4, or really talked about them again, until this week. The publisher said in a tweet that the process is “still under evaluation” and it continues to work with Sony to solve the reported roadblocks.
We’re working w/ Sony on Fallout 4 Mod support for PS4. The process is still under evaluation. As soon as we learn more, we will share news.

Over the past few days, Bethesda’s Pete Hines has been engaged in a dialogue with fans over the apparent delay of mod support on PS4. Though he couldn’t reveal much, it looked like he wasn’t even able to get into specifics. Hines usually doesn’t have a problem sharing details with fans, but this looks like a much bigger problem than it appears.
