After a year since its release, finally, mods for "Fallout4" have arrived for the PlayStation 4 console. Modifications are vital as these are the alteration of a game's content to make it play in a manner different from the original or released version. The release of the mods for "Fallout 4" could have never taken place as the game developer Bethesda and Sony cannot agree with the implementation of the mods.

According to Bethesda, in their interview with Hot Hardware, Sony refused to approve the user mods the game developers proposed. The developer further said that Sony's decision disappointed them, given the effort and time they have labored for the project and the anticipation the fans have. After many negotiations, Sony and Bethesda settled on a compromise agreement. That is, users can modify their own content using the Bethesda Creation Kit but gamers will not be able to upload from external sources their PS4 mods.

Express, mods for "Fallout4 "are available now for download for PlayStation 4 consoles. For gamers to be able to use them, latest patch version 1.8 should be installed.

The patch supports the mods on PS4, including bug fixes such as general optimizations and performance improvements. It also patches up issues in which sound effects would not persist after reloading in an area as well as the occasional crash when exiting to the Min Menu and trying to start a new game. The patch also resolves the issues with spaces in Mods search queries and the problem when gamers cannot rate WIP Mods. Another bug fix is on the mods that can only be rated after they have been downloaded, as well as the double the amount of browse-able tiles in Mods Menu. 

The patch also fixes a rare crash that occurs when a Mod has an unexpected data structure. It also resolves the issue in which Library or favourite Mods categories would not display correctly in specific situations. It repairs the issue in which some mods images would not load when quickly scrolling. The bug moreover fixed the issue of sentry bot firing dual Gatling lasers no longer cause audio to cut out.
