While you may have loved every single minute traipsing the Wastelands and wading through Oblivion, there’s been something missing from Bethesda games on consoles. And that something is mods.
Fortunately, 2016 has given us cause to rejoice as with DOOM, The Elder Scrolls Skyrim: Special Edition, and now Fallout 4, PS4 Mods are no longer a pipedream, but an exciting - albeit daunting - reality.
But here’s a conundrum. You’ve got your Pip boy equipped and Patch 1.8 installed, which Fallout 4 mod do you get first?
Well, if you’re an Arachnophobe, the obvious choice is the Arachnophobia mod which removes all the Radscorpions from the game. That’s sure to stop Vault Boy’s skin from crawling!
Or if our 8-legged friends don’t bother you that much, you could try the highly immersive Simple Survival mod which requires you to eat, drink, and sleep at regular intervals. Sounds like a good way to lighten the load and make use of the empty space in Vault 111.
Perhaps you’d like to improve your Settlements with the Clean and Smooth mods. It makes the building process much easier by removing debris and unwanted plantlife. You can just build without having to worry about space and create an empire Vault-Tec would be proud of. If they were around to see it.
Maybe you just want some good old basic cheating so you can unlock everything in the game, including armour, perks, gear, and building resources. The PS4 Mods will totally allow you to do that, letting you mess around and manipulate the open world of Fallout however you see fit. Heck, since it’s the season to be jolly you could deck the halls with bells and holly, screaming Happy Holidays if you felt so inclined. I’m sure you could even encourage the Super Mutants to join in, though they seem to have a particular fetish for arms so do be careful.
Whatever you decide, there’s something for everyone and they’re all very easy to install while using the in-game launcher. Bethesda have gained plenty of experience doing this with the work they’ve done on both Skyrim and DOOM so you’re in good hands.
Share your favourite mods with us. We’d love to hear what you’re using in the game and get some recommendations.
