Bethesda Confirms April Release For Fallout 4 Creation Kit

You have to hand it to Bethesda, the company isn't letting the success of Fallout 4 get to its head. After winning Game of the Year honors (plus a spattering of other awards) at the DICE Awards show in Las Vegas last week, it would be easy to call it a day and more onto the next project. Instead, Bethesda has some fun updates planned, including one that will bring mod support for Fallout 4.

Just before the awards show, the folks at Game Informer had a chance to interview Todd Howard, director and executive producer of Bethesda. According to Howard, you can expect to see mods in a couple of months, at least for PC—mod support is also coming for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but not before it lands on PC.

Fallout 4 Far Harbor

"Our goal is between the the first two DLCs. It'll go up at that time on PC, in April," Howard said. "All of that stuff will go up on PC. People are beta testing it. There will be a lag on console. We want to get it up on PC and have it work. It'll probably be a good month before it hits Xbox, and another month for PlayStation 4."

Adding mod support will breathe new life into Fallout 4, though it's not the only thing Bethesda has planned. As Howard mentioned, there's some DLC in the works, the first of which is Automatron, a $10 add-on due out in March. Automatron will introduce a "horde of evil robots" that you'll be able to hund down and harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions.
