Bethesda announced on another post on their official website that their "Fallout 4" creation kit has been updated recently to support mods on the PS4 console system. To update it, players will need to go to their Bethesda.net Launcher and let it download the necessary files for update. The game developer warned that the PS4 mods will only be Plugins, which means it will only use internal resources already available in the game.
PS4 owners will not be able to use mods that will require external assets like changing skins of NPCs and weapons, or adding new characters that are not included in "Fallout 4." They can, however, use mods that enhance the values of items like weapons, armor, and many more as long as these resources are in the game.
