Following the announcement that PlayStation 4 (PS4) gamers would have to wait a little longer for their “Fallout 4” mods, Bethesda Game Studious is still being tightlipped as to when the aforementioned console users will get their hands on the modding feature.
Late last month, the video game developer took to their social media to talk about the setback. “We regret to say that the PS4 Mods Beta for Fallout 4 has been delayed. We will update everyone when we can,” they wrote on Twitter.
While the announcement was understandably met with dismayed reactions from fans, the community was mostly divisive on taking the news of the delay. Some fans were more lenient, reasoning that they rather wait some more instead of getting their hands on something that is not running properly. Others, on the hand, were not shy in airing their frustrations, pointing out that Bethesda had been cutting corners when it comes to PS4 users. On top of the change in timeline, fueling exasperation is the lack of any specific reason about the delay, as well as an uncertain release date.
An article published by Forbes has pointed out that the roadblock was almost expected. Aside from the PS4, PCs are said to also experiencing some troubles with sound files and a 900 MB storage limit that came with the extensive update. Nevertheless, the mod for the device still pushed through and is still available. As for the Xbox One variation, the media outlet theorized that the inclusion of the console in the Windows 10 lineup made the transition a lot easier compared to Sony’s PS4.
Prior to the announcement, Gamespot already cited issues with “Fallout 4” PS4 mods which may cause memory and performance problems. That early on, Bethesda already acknowledged the issues and even attempted to sort things out with Sony before the full version rolls out. Obviously, they were unable to do so causing the delay.
