Director Todd Howard revealed the information in an interview with Game Informer. He said mod support will kick off after the first DLC, Automatron, has been released. He noted that consoles will follow.

"We want to get it up on PC and have it work," said Howard. "It'll probably be a good month before it hits Xbox One, and another month for PlayStation 4."

Howard also talked about Fallout 4's upcoming DLC, including the "Pokemon-esque" Automatron and Wasteland Workshop.

"The first one, Automatron, has a little quest line and this Pokemon-esque 'kill robots, get their parts, build your own' [gameplay]," Howard explained. "The Wasteland Workshop DLC is obviously for Workshop people. We wanted it to scratch that itch of 'Can I build my own Thunderdome?'"

The Survival Mode was also revealed to be coming to Steam's beta program "soon" and will come to consoles when developer Bethesda feels it's ready for an official release.

Although official support is still on its way, we've already seen a deluge of mods like one that lets you wear gear from The Witcher 3 and another that lets you play as characters from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
