Clearly, the sky is falling and we’re all doomed because the unthinkable has happened: mods, once the exclusive domain of PC gamers, have made their way to consoles with Bethesda offering a variety of community-created content for Xbox One owners of Fallout 4 (and soon, PlayStation 4 owners). If you own Fallout 4 on the Xbox One, you can get to installing mods on it right now. Here’s what you need to do.
How to Install Fallout 4 Mods on Xbox One
First off, you’ll have to create an account for Bethesda.net, which you can do on (surprise, surprise) Bethesda.net. Get your account verified and activated, and then click on the “Mods” tab at the top of the page, and make sure you select Fallout 4 and Xbox One under their respective options. After this, you get to pick the mods that you want – but be warned, you can only have 2 GB of active mods on the Xbox One.
Pick the mods you want, and click on “Add to Library” to get them added. Then, load up the game on your Xbox One and you’ll notice there’s a Mods option in the main menu now. If it’s not there, make sure your game is updated. Select the Mods option on the main menu, and you’ll have access to the exact library of mods you picked online. Enable the mods you want to play with on your game and then go back to the main menu and load your game, and you’re now playing with mods.
Keep in mind that achievements will be disabled while you play with mods, and you’ll also have a separate save file, so that you can return to your unmodded game whenever you like. Let us know if this worked for you in the comments below.
