PS4 owners might be waiting longer than they thought for Fallout 4 mods to arrive on their consoles.
Per IGN, Bethesda is facing three issues regarding the beta for mods. The first is the use of PC textures. “Memory and performance issues may occur. We are working with Sony on optimal texture exporting support in a future update.”
Second, sound files not currently supported due to Sony using a proprietary sound format. Bethesda and Sony are working together to create a fix.
Finally, the storage for mids is limited to a mere 900MB, so any large mods won’t be able to be used. Again, the two companies are working to expand this as much as possible.
However, despite outlining these problems, Bethesda are promising that the beta is “close to ready.”
Xbox One owners have been experiencing mod support since the launch of the Far Harbor DLC last month. It was is so popular that it generated 50 times the amount of traffic than on PC when it launched.
