NVIDIA Fallout 4 Mod Contest Offers Up Custom Fallout 4 PC And $10,000 For Grand Prize

mod contest nvidia
Late last month, Bethesda released the Creation Kit as a free download for those that want to take a stab at building Mods for Fallout 4. The Creation Kit isn’t just some second-rate tool that was tossed at gamers; instead, these are the same tools that the developers used to make Fallout 4 and its DLC content like Far Harbor.

With that in mind, the fine folks over at NVIDIA are calling on the gaming community to create Mods and the payoff will be YUGE, in the words of Donald Trump. Gamers are being tasked to create Mods that fit into the following four Categories:

  • Status: Mods that alter the functionality of the game including audio and dialog modifications, and UI changes.
  • Inventory: Mods that involve new/upgraded weapons, clothing and other misc. items
  • Data: Mods that involve new quests and revolve around Fallout 4’s Workshop mode
  • Map: Mods involving new towns, cities, vegetation, etc.

Once you have created your Mod, you’ll need to submit it to Bethesda.net. After that step has been completed, you’ll need to fill out an official submission entry at NVIDIA’s contest page.

NVIDIA will select 20 finalists for the contest -- 5 from each category -- which will be posted to NVIDIA’s contest page the week of July 11th (all finalists will win a prize, even if they don’t manage to snag the Grand Price). Finalists will be selected based on originality, graphics and functionality quality, and entertainment value.

The gaming community will determine a winner from each of the four categories along with the Grand Prize winner. And here are the prizes that are up for grabs:

Grand Prize

  • $10,000
  • Fallout 4 custom PC
  • Engineering support from NVIDIA
