Minecraft wouldn’t be what it is today without them, so it’s normal that the Microsoft wants to make use of mods on their home console games.
Whatever you might think about the gaming industry, a game’s popularity, sales performance and utility depends always on its players. We see that in so many games.
If you’re aware of PC games or in-game editors, you know our big community of players can create astonishing things with the tools the devs give them. Also, these players modifications, either funny or useful, have been growing with the increased support from the developers, with better tools, assets or tips. And why not? The more content, the more interesting and re-playable a game becomes!
During E3 2015, at the Microsoft Conference, Todd Howard, video game director at Bethesda Game Studios, announced that the Xbox One version of Fallout 4 would make use of the mods created on the PC version. And so, enabling a large amount of content to be played on the home console. Oh, and the Fallout 4 Xbox One version comes with the Fallout 3.
At this moment, I think Fallout 4 has been the only game announced with this epic feature. But what about other games or even Minecraft Xbox One Edition? Fallout 4 seems to be the first to test if mods are truly a desire for console players.
You can watch the official Fallout 4 trailer below.
Fallout 4 will be available November 10, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
