Fallout 4 Update 1.12 Is Live on PS4, Adds Mod Support

November 17, 2016Written by Jason Dunning


After months of waiting, mod support is now available in Fallout 4 for PlayStation 4. After downloading the newly released Fallout 4 update 1.12 (aka Update 1.8), you’ll be able to download and install any of the mods currently available for PS4 on Bethesda.net.

When you boot up Fallout 4 for the first time after installing today’s update and try to access mods, you’ll be greeted by a message that says you need to sign in with your Bethesda.net account. The message adds: “Play with Mods at your own risk. You may experience issues with mods. You can disable Mods via Load Order and go back to your original save at anytime using Select Character in the Load menu. Downloading and playing with Mods is subject to our Terms of Service. Note: Trophies are disabled.”

Here’s the full list of patch notes for Fallout 4 Update 1.8, which is now available on PS4 and Xbox One:

New Features

  • Support for Mods on PS4


  • General optimizations and performance improvements
  • Fixed an issue in which some sound effects would not persist after reloading in an area
  • Resolved an occasional crash when exiting to the Main Menu, and trying to start a New Game
  • Fixed an issues with spaces in Mods search queries
  • Cannot rate “WIP” Work in Progress Mods, and Mods can now only be rated after they have been downloaded
  • Doubled the amount of browse-able tiles in the Mods menu
  • Fixed a rare crash that would occur when a Mod had an unexpected data structure
  • Fixed an issue in which Library and/or Favorite Mods categories would not display correctly in specific situations
  • Fixed an issue in which some Mods images would not load when scrolling quickly

As Bethesda added on Twitter, the planned PS4 Pro support (4K, enhanced lighting) for Fallout 4 will be included in the next update (timing TBA).
