Bethesda’s Todd Howard is a very busy man. But the company’s Studio Director found the time to sit down for a discussion with Game Informer recently, where he revealed that official mod support for the PC version of Fallout 4, AKA the Creation Kit, will be available in April. Howard also confirmed that PS4 and Xbox One owners will get a chance to play with Fallout 4’s mod tools, but they likely won’t be ready until May or June:
Game Informer: When can we expect to see mods, especially on console side?
Howard: Our goal is between the first two DLCs. It’ll go up at that time on PC. In April. All of that stuff will go up on PC. People are beta testing it. There’ll be a lag on consoles. We want to get it up on PC and have it work. It’ll probably be a good month before it hits Xbox One, and another month for PlayStation 4.
Howard was a huge presence at last week’s DICE Awards, when he trudged to the stage on Thursday to collect “Game of the Year” honors for Fallout 4. That same day, he also had a conversation with comedian Pete Holmes and told the audience that Bethesda is currently working on three unannounced projects that are, in his words, “big and crazy.”
