Bethesda has given us a look at the Fallout 4 Creation Kit that will be heading to consoles that will be heading to the the Xbox One in May and PlayStation 4 in June. At the moment, PC players can access the Creation Kit beta through a few simple steps.
Players on PC can actually download a beta for the modding tools now. Here’s how:
- Log into Steam
- Right Click on Fallout 4 in your Library
- Select Settings
- Select Betas
- A drop down menu will appear. Select beta
- Select OK
- Wait a few minutes and Fallout 4 should update
- When done, Fallout 4 should appear as Fallout 4 [Beta] in your Library
The Creation Kit will allow modders to create mods and make them accessible to Xbox One and PS4 owners. The tools in the Creation Kit will allow modders to create quests, alter/create environments, dialogue and more.
In addition to mod creation, the Creation Kit will feature an in-game UI that will allow users to sort through mods, bookmark and favorite items they like or want as they com across them.
Whether it be by coincidence or not, the Steam Workshop's wording has been altered suggesting that the modding community may be looking at paying for mods in the future.
