E3 2018: There Will Be Mod Support For Fallout 76, But Not At Launch

Fallout 76 has been announced and will be a multiplayer-focused live game rather than the expected single player experience known from Bethesda Game Studios’ output. But having being always-online and each instance of the game will have other players roaming on the world map, it pretty much rules out modding- another staple for a Bethesda Game Studios game.

However, mods will still be support for Fallout 76, just that it will not be available on launch.

Speaking to Geoff Keighley on the E3 Colosseum live show, game director Todd Howard confirmed that they will continue to support mods, just as they have been for years. “We love mods, and so we are 100 percent committed to doing that in 76 as well,” he said.

“Our goal for launch–this is really new for us–is: have a well-running, robust service and then, some period later, ” Howard added. “We’re currently still designing what that service looks like, you’ll be able to have your own private world, and be able to mod it, and do all of that.

“We think, with our games, that’s where the long-term life of them really is. That is trickier when you get into an online world but we’re definitely committed to that, just won’t be at launch.”

Fallout 76 will be out on November 14th for the PS4, PC and Xbox One.
