A lot of activity and updates from developer Bethesda have been reported as the release date for “Fallout 4” comes closer. There have been a lot of confirmations regarding new details for the game, with the newest one being the arrival of mods for the PS4.
Modding has been a big part of the franchise, and for this year’s “Fallout” title, the developer will not deviate from the software that it had previously used, Express reported. Still, this does not mean that the experience will not be a new and expansive one for fans.
“The most important thing in our games is the freedom you have to create your own experience, and modding is a big part of that,” Bethesda said in a statement quoted by Express.
As such, the only restrictions that Bethesda has placed so far in modding are in banning assets found in other games and avoiding nudity. The Creation Kit will come first to the PC before it arrives to the next-generation consoles Xbox One and PS4.
Mods for “Fallout 4” are not the only things in the game to receive new updates. While the base game has already been reported to have several hours of exploration in store for fans, the adventure will not easily end, thanks to confirmed DLCs coming out post-launch.
In 2016, Bethesda will be rolling out expansion packs for “Fallout 4,” but the confirmation of DLCs has already received flak. GameSpot reported that fans are not amused with the announcement of expansion before the game was even launched. There have been recent issues when it comes to DLCs of games, since some speculations have led fans to question whether a game is rolled out “incomplete” in order to pave the way for DLCs.
However, Bethesda’s Pete Hines has made his stance known about the recent “Fallout 4” DLC announcement, stating that it is good to let fans know what the dev’s plans are for the game. Still, the expansion appears to be further away from the minds of the devs at the moment, as the team is still busy finishing up the game.
Meanwhile, fans who are still looking for the “Fallout 4” Pip Boy Edition may still have hope. The Japanese branch of the developer has already confirmed the release of stock for this version come Dec. 17. While it’s a month later than the actual game’s release date, Gotta Be Mobile reported that there are still plans to take orders for the edition but with disclaimers that the stocks will still be limited.
Similarly, outside the U.S., there are apparently some stocks of the “Fallout 4” Pip Boy Edition. Specifically, online retailers Amazon France and Amazon Italy are still promoting stocks for the $120 edition.
