Fallout 4 might have been a big hit with fans and critics alike, but the PS4 version of the game seems to suffer from some significant flaws. The Far Harbor DLC for the PS4 Sony?s console could have been a lot better, and now it seems like the Fallout 4 PS4 mods pale in comparison to the ones on Xbox One and PC.
It wasn?t that long ago when Bethesda brought Fallout 4 mods to the console versions of the game, something fans were very excited about. There would be a limit to how much mods could be added to the game though, with the Xbox One version maxing in at 2GB.
Game Rant has confirmed that the PS4 version would only have a 900MB limit to mods, which is extremely small compared with the Xbox One version. Even worse is using mods that were edited on PC will make the PS4 version suffer from various performance issues. Bethesda is aware of the problem, as they?ve stated that they are having a hard time with the console, particularly with the sound, stating that any sound files that are in the mods will not be supported.
While it sounds like a big mess, Bethesda is working hard to make the mods run better on the PS4. The company is working with Sony to fix all the performance issues, including the audio problems mentioned previously. It might take a while, but at least it is a problem that is being addressed. ?This is probably why it wasn?t simultaneously released with the Xbox One version, since the mods work better in Microsoft?s current-gen console.?
Bethesda has promised that the Fallout 4 PS4 mods will eventually become better. It?s a shame that the PS4 version has suffered from this, because otherwise it?s still a great game that fans of the previous iterations should check out. The game is available now in retail and digital stores, with a US$50 season pass that grants players access to all the DLC, including the upcoming Nuka World.
