Maybe you've played Fallout 4 and wished you could trade places with your canine companion Dogmeat. Now you can, thanks to a newly released mod for the open-world RPG.
The mod, called "Be The Dog -- Playable Dogs," was created by Nexusmods user Abbalovesyou. It lets you explore post-apocalyptic Boston as Dogmeat or some of the other dogs seen in the wasteland.
While you can't shoot guns, dogs aren't defenseless in Fallout 4--far from it. This mod gives dogs a number of attack options, including two forms of biting and two further power attacks. These include a jumping bite (initiated while standing still) and a running jumping bite (via VG247).
The mod isn't without issues, Abbalovesyou explains. For one thing, the Pip-Boy tool does not work while in first-person view, so you'll need to access your inventory through other means. Additionally, if you play as a dog at the game's start, the game can crash after you touch your baby and chat with your spouse.
In other Fallout 4 news about dogs, Dogmeat won Best Video Game Dog at The Dog Awards recently.
As for the game itself, Fallout 4's first paid add-on, Automatron, arrives on March 22 across PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. You can read this post to find out exactly when the content will unlock.
