Fallout 4 Players on Xbox One Can Now Make Their Dog a Cat (And So Much More) With Mods

PlayStation 4 users get mods in June.


It is a rarity for PC mods to be playable on console, but that's exactly what's happening now with Fallout 4. Today, Bethesda updated Fallout 4's Xbox One version to including support for Bethesda.net mods, letting you do all manner of crazy things like make your dog a cat.

The Bethesda.net mods hub is now available inside Fallout 4 on Xbox One. You can search for whatever mod you want (the cat one is called CatMeat), see some images and a description, and then download and install it. There is a 2 GB cap, but you can delete mods to free up space whenever you want.

The mods, which are free, are made on PC using the Creation Kit. To get a better idea for how Fallout 4 mods work on console, check out the overview video above.

As explained during last week's livestream event, when you have Fallout 4 mods installed, due to first-party considerations, you cannot earn any achievements. Additionally, in order to play Fallout 4 mods that make use of the game's DLC (like the recently released Far Harbor expansion), you will need to own that DLC.

When you use mods, the game creates a new save. If something goes wrong with the mod and you lose progress (the game crashed at one point during the livestream), you can revert back to your regular, non-mod save game.

In other news about Fallout 4 console mods, Bethesda has confirmed that they are still on track to come to PlayStation 4 in June.

Fallout 4's console mod program was announced at E3 2015. Bethesda later explained why it partnered with Microsoft to launch them first on Xbox One.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red has also talked about possibly bringing PC mods to console, but this hasn't happened yet and it's unclear if it ever will.
