Bethesda Will Show Off Fallout 4 Xbox One Mods Today

Mods are coming to Fallout 4 on Xbox One soon, but you might be wondering just how it will work. Today, Bethesda is going to answer that question via live stream.

You’ll be able to check out some of the early mods, how to implement them, and how they work on Xbox One. Additionally, the Xbox team published a video yesterday showing off four that introduce new weapons, tactical goggles, and settlement options.

Microsoft is also running a contest, in which a mod creator will win a custom PC. You can win a Fallout 4-themed Xbox One for voting (details in the video).

You can tune into Bethesda’s Twitch channel today at 7 p.m. Eastern / 4 p.m. Pacific to see mods running on Xbox One. PlayStation 4 mod support will be arriving in June. 

You can also check out our review for more on Fallout 4. Just like on PC, mods are free on console.

Expedition: Viking Devs Show Off Character Creation, Combat

While Norse mythology has inspired a number of games, realistic Viking history is largely untapped. Logic Artists’ Expedition: Viking keeps things rooted with authenticity, while still giving characters a chance to seem larger than life.

When we interviewed Logic Artists back in February, the developers told us that one of the strengths and challenges of working with Viking history is that documentation is so sparse. This creates a core framework for historical context while still allowing for creative expression and engaging gameplay.

While the developer diary only gives a short glimpse of gameplay, we can help fill in the blanks. We had a chance to play Expedition: Viking at GDC, and you can read our impressions for more. It’ll be out this fall on PC.

Two Outlast II Gameplay Videos Show A Farm Can Be Just As Scary As An Asylum

Outlast is moving to a new setting for the sequel after the original mostly took place in Mount Massive Asylum, and it looks just as unsettling.

The two videos below each show four minutes of gameplay that will be familiar to those who played the first game. Much of the action takes through the perspective of a camera with night-vision capabilities. The cornfield footage in particular (the first video below) is especially unsettling as the way the light breaks through the branches creates creepy shapes and masks difficult to identify foes.

Outlast II is planned for release some time this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, though an exact release date has not yet been revealed. For more on the game, which takes place in the same universe as the original Outlast, but follows a different character in a different, setting, head here.
