Mods and the players who create them have always been
an important part of our games, going all the way back to Morrowind and The
Elder Scrolls Construction Set. We believe that our games become something much
more special, when we put the power of creation in your hands. New quests,
environments, characters, dialogue, outfits, weapons and more – with Mods, the
possibilities of what you can do are endless. You are creating new experiences
that enhance and take our games into amazing and surprising new directions.
For Fallout 4, our goal was to make Mods easier and more accessible than ever
before – for both the creators and the players. By building an all-new system
we’ve made a huge leap forward in achieving that.
You can now browse and search for the latest and greatest Mods, choose your
favorites, post feedback, and install them – all within the game. Simply select
Mods from the main menu, and start browsing. You can also browse through mods
online on Bethesda.net.
