While the full version of mod support for Fallout 4 on PlayStation 4 is set to launch later this month, the beta phase for it definitely has some issues that need to be ironed out. Bethesda has just released a new update for the Creation Kit on PC that prepares the game for the upcoming mods beta phase on PS4, but there are some things that everyone needs to watch out for.
Bethesda has detailed the problems that are currently present with the PS4 mods beta on their website, which includes texture problems, lack of sound file support and a 900 MB storage cap. Scroll down for the complete notes:
NEW FEATURES AND FIXES
- Uploading mods to Bethesda.net requires Fallout 4 ownership via a Steam-linked Bethesda.net account
- General optimizations and bug fixes
KNOWN ISSUES WITH PS4 MODS
- PC textures are used. Memory and performance issues may occur. We are working with Sony on optimal texture exporting support in a future update.
- Sound files are currently not supported. PS4 sound format is a proprietary format. We are working with Sony on sound file processing support in a future update.
- PS4 Mod Storage limit is approximately 900 MB at present. Please do not upload mods larger than 900 MB. We are working with Sony to increase this limit.
Bethesda claims that the Closed Beta for the PS4 Mods for Fallout 4 is nearly ready, and that more information will be coming soon.
