[UPDATE] During today's livestream, Bethesda revealed that there is a size limit for the mods you can download on Xbox One. That limit is 2 GB. Mod sizes vary, of course. You can delete them whenever you want as well to free up space.

Bethesda talked more about how Fallout 4 mods work on Xbox One. You will find "Mods" from the menu. Then, after you've linked your Bethesda.net account, you browse for and install the mods you want. You can browse these mods right now here.

Additionally, Bethesda confirmed that when you have Fallout 4 mods installed, due to first-party considerations, you cannot earn any achievements.

The developers also talked about how in order to play Fallout 4 mods that make use of the game's DLC, 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.
