Sony itself was the barrier for mod support in their staple "Fallout 4" but at least gamers have better view of what is in store for this Bethesda title. Sony has finally given free hand to "Fallout 4" in this "no touch" hubris and Bethesda has timeline already for PS4 mod support.

Now with the final rollout, Bethesda announced that not only "Fallout 4" frame rate is getting a boost through update 1.8 but the whole game itself. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are still in the certification setback but PC version is already out since Wednesday, Nov 09. Bethesda announced that PS4 mod support will follow soon, probably before the month ends.

CounselHeal reported that patch 1.8 contains bug fixes and improvement on sound effects, crashes and graphics blurring. Come to think of it, these problems were the most blamed culprit that affect "Fallout 4" so gamers are sure to be pleased. Especially the perennial problem of crashing whenever exiting to main menu interface and when trying to start new game.

Now that PC is finally getting a facelift, the main question resides with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of "Fallout 4." If we are to take out Xbox on the equation, then the whole argument of hold up will be with Sony. There are limited details about Bethesda-Sony tussle but the only clear repercussion is the effect to the gaming community. At least now that it has been ironed out a bit, "Fallout 4" and "Skyrim" on PS4 will get updates already.

Remember that we are also talking about mods, so free hand to make the game more "customizable" is sure to excite all. "Fallout 4" started the domino effect with Creation Kit that serves as prerequisite before mods can be installed, Trusted Reviews said.

It is also notable that PlayStation 4 mods for "Fallout 4" can't be archived and runs at plug-in style. Further, there is a handicap on the size of these mods being limited to 900MB only. While Xbox One sports bigger allotted space for "Fallout 4" mods, at least this is a good start for Sony console.
