Mods Will Only Be Allowed On Private Servers, Say Bethesda
Fallout 76 might not have mod support until next November, according to Bethesda executive Pete Hines. Hines has also said recently that mods would only be allowed on private servers, not public ones.
“I don’t foresee a universe in which we allow players to come in [to the game’s public servers] with their own unique and different mods. If you want to run mods, they’ll have to be done on a private server,” Hines told GameSpot. “You’ll be deciding what sort of mods you’re including and running, and everyone playing on that server is playing with those mods.”
When it came to when mod support would be coming to Fallout 76, Hines said that it wouldn’t be available at launch and “cautioned that mods may not be supported in Fallout 76 until November 2019 at the soonest.”
“It’s going to be a lot of work. But mods and private servers are definitely coming,” Hines said to GameSpot.
