I thought I would never say this but hooray! Fallout 4 mods on PS4 have now been available for a few days, and although there aren’t as many as there are on Xbox and PC, It’s still a big step for PS4 users and an exciting development.
I will keep it short and snappy as there isn’t much ground to cover but I have noticed not everyone is yet aware the mods are live. I’ve took my spare time as an opportunity to dive in and give them a go. To test them I over loaded my game with mods to see what it could handle, what it couldn’t handle and what mods are the best for getting the most out of the game, so here we go.
First off I downloaded the OP weapons mod, All Perks mod and a couple of Commonwealth environmental changes such as green grass and growing trees, all blue skies. These to start with were causing lag which felt like I was playing an online fps game with a bad host, so I disabled the environment changing mods and they appeared to be the issue as I was able to play smoothly against once disabling them, so if that’s not something you are too fussed by (It was nice to have an aesthetically pleasing wasteland for once) then just leave them out. I was sure it was the weapons mod that was lagging as the power in my weapons is insane! I can blow things up on contact with a regular combat shotgun.

The next one I was interested in downloading was the Pre-War Sanctuary mod, it restores most of Sanctuary back to what it was before the blast. There are a few issues with this mod and whatever you build in the spaces before downloading it, may end up having pre-war houses build right on top of them and some areas will show through the shiny new houses. The only usable house is your own which looks exactly as it did those moments before the Vault-Tec rep came knocking, his vans even parked outside! Alongside this I downloaded the Sanctuary Cache mod which converts the basement behind one of the houses into your own little living quarters complete with three sets of power armor. T-60 and two X-01 suits. If you would like to see a walk through/game play of these two mods, head over to our YouTube channel!
I am currently in the middle of testing more mods and having a play around, bare in mind that all achievements or trophies are disabled during use of modded game play. Be sure to keep an eye out on our Instagram or YouTube for new video content of the modded game play. Thank you!
