Anyone playing Fallout 4 on PC can now begin browsing and using mods. Bethesda announced today that it has opened the beta process up to the entire community.

You’ll need Fallout 4 update 1.5, which you can download via Steam. You’ll need to enable the beta setting using these steps, though:

  • Log into Steam
  • Right Click on Fallout 4 in your Library
  • Select Settings
  • Select Betas
  • A drop down menu will appear. Select beta
  • Select OK
  • Wait a few minutes and Fallout 4 should update
  • When done, Fallout 4 should appear as Fallout 4 [Beta] in your Library

The mod option will appear in game, and you’ll be able to see what others have created. If you want to give it a go yourself, the Fallout creation kit is available as a free download on Bethesda’s site

Mods will be coming to Xbox One in May and PlayStation 4 in June. For more on Fallout 4, check out our review.
