Are you wondering what the best multiplayer mod for Fallout 4 is? Fallout 4 is the critically acclaimed follow-up to Fallout New Vegas. In this entry, we take on the role of a vault dweller in the Commonwealth what a bunch of new features, including a crafting system and a dialogue system featuring over 100,000 lines of dialogue. So it is no wonder you want to play Fallout 4 with others. Is it possible, though? Unfortunately, Fallout 4 includes no official multiplayer function with the base game. However, like previous Fallout entries, you can mod it, which could be an alternate solution for achieving multiplayer in Fallout 4 multiplayer. Here is everything you need to know about the best multiplayer mod for Fallout 4.

The Fallout 4 Multiplayer Mod and Fallout Together were the most promising multiplayer mods. Unfortunately, both mod creators have moved on from these projects and are no longer available. Here is the explanation of why this is the case.

The Fallout 4 Multiplayer Mod was scrapped because it had many bugs and performance issues. The mod creator attempted to find volunteers to help fix the mod but could not. As a result, the mod was sadly discontinued forever, leaving only one Fallout 4 multiplayer MOD left.

In a recent video by YouTuber, Apoqsi, who has been covering Fallout 4 multiplayer mods, it was stated that the Fallout Together MOD is unfortunately dead (again) due to issues with the Fallout 4 code, which cashes the game to crash. This unfortunate news comes from the Fallout Together developer, Cosideci, who states that it will take intermediate to advanced knowledge in C++ and reverse engineering and hundreds of hours of time to fix.

While you won’t get to play with other players in Fallout 4, there is a mod that will allow you to communicate with fellow vault dwellers. This is a fun alternative as it gives the Commonwealth a sense of life.

Building Bridges Mod for Fallout 4

Building Bridges is the only active multiplayer mod available for Fallout 4. While Making Bridges doesn’t allow you to play co-op with other players, it lets you leave them notes in the world to find as they explore. A fun aspect of this is leaving notes for people to let them know how to complete a quest or where a bobblehead is located on a level. You can follow the instructions on installing the mod on Nexus Mods. The installation process is easy, and you’ll be communicating with other Commonwealth vault dwellers in no time.

If you are looking for an official multiplayer Fallout game, then Fallout 76 is your only choice. Luckily, all of the issues with the game at launch have been fixed, and it is insanely fun. We are hoping that the next Fallout entry will have some co-op mode.
