Fallout 4 mod support will work similarly to what's possible in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, according to game director Todd Howard.
Mods! The glory of PC gaming.
Now coming to ps4 and xbox one
well technically not confirmed for PS4: Howard - "Then, they'll become transferable to Xbox One, and after that, hopefully to PlayStation 4 as well"
They're being pretty cool about it :). I hope there will be a way to play an unfinished/farting-around mod that I make (and put on USB). Also I'm pretty sure they should disable XBL achievement/trophy support for mods, I'm sure it's a bigger deal than Steam achievements.
as much as i want it to work but i doubt this is going to happen on console, if it do it will be short lived. remember what happen to linux and ut3 on ps3. the locked the system down after someone found an exploit. most likely the mods is going to be heavily regulated and basic skin mods. its more to mods than just gfx and skin mods on pc.
They didn't talk about the only thing I want to hear about... whether they are going to pull a paid mods crap stunt again. I'm beginning to imagine a picture in which Microsoft wanted money for bandwidth "as they do" (look up developer costs for updating there games). Being the reason the whole paid mods thing came about. I wouldn't in anyway object to a donation system for mods which Steam might be ok with but I can't see Microsoft easily adopting an idea like that. Either way it would be unfortunate if piratebay became the Fallout mod HQ
Mods are gonna make Fallout 4 one heck of a game to play for about as long as it takes until we get The Elder Scrolls VI.
