Fallout 4 has a very large map, with it taking quite a while to cross. It’s also the most interesting map to date, with the player constantly coming across new locations. Though as usual, there’s still plenty of boarded up buildings and empty space. You can always make the world more interesting, by taking a look at some new areas and location mods for PS4.
Unfortunately, PS4 players have it the worst when it comes to modding Fallout 4. Due to heavy restrictions by Sony, no external assets are allowed to be used, meaning no new models, textures, sounds etc. This means it’s hard to find a lot of great mods that we usually see on Xbox and PC.
The mods in this list are in no particular order, and all the buttons below link back to Bethesda.net where you can download them on your PS4. Here at PwrDown, we’ve covered many more lists like this for Fallout 4 PS4 Mods!
Diamond City Overhaul
First up is Diamond City Overhaul. As you’d expect, this mod will completely change the Diamond City location in Fallout 4 to have plenty more to explore and do. The main location is the Catwalks, which can be found in the rafters. Inside, you’ll find lots of new NPCs, stores, new player homes and even live entertainment.
Lexington is a busy location in Fallout 4, as you’ll first head there to clear out Corvega Assembly Plant. With this mod installed, there will be plenty of new locations to explore in Lexington, specifically interiors. Overall, this mod adds over 28 new interiors, some big and some small. A few of these locations also have some lore and enemies in, with some being difficult to defeat.
Mad Rock Settlement
Located not far from University Point, you will find a new location after installing this mod on your PS4. It adds a short quest in this new location named Mad Rock, and completing it will give access to a settlement there. The area is very well designed, and looks better than a lot of Vanilla Fallout 4 locations.
This next Fallout 4 mod will also add a Settlement, this one being just south of Spectacle Island. The Settlement is named Barge Town, appropriately named as it’s floating on the water. There isn’t much to explore, with the area mostly being desolate and empty. However it’s a great new place to build a base.
Instead of adding a new location, the Minuteman HQ mod will completely revamp the Museum of Freedom found in Concord. Now, it will be the headquarters for the Minutemen faction, and will look significantly different. A lot will have been restored, with some new rooms including a school, workshop, gift shop, sleeping area and showers.
Chestnut Hill Station
As you can probably tell, most Fallout 4 mods for PS4 that add new areas will usually consist of Settlements. This next one, Chestnut Hill Station can be found just south-west of Hardware Town. It consists of a destroyed town and will need clearing out. When you arrive at the Settlement, prepare for battle!
We know quite a lot about the Minutemen Faction. They once patrolled the Commonwealth, providing help where it was needed until they where mostly taken out. With the Minutemen Watchtowers mod, you can see a bit more into this lore. Dotted around the Fallout 4 world, you will find 9 Watch Towers, with each of them having loot and a place to sleep. Overall, it will help make your Fallout 4 game feel more immersive and realistic.
Beantown Interiors Project
Beantown Interiors is a huge mod which I’d certainly recommend for your PS4. It will add many new locations, all throughout the Commonwealth. In total, it adds 61 new interiors, with some of them being based in the DLC locations such as Far Harbor and Nuka World. With this mod running, you should constantly stumble upon new places to search.
Rivet City Mod
If you’ve played Fallout 3 before, then you should already be familiar with Rivet City. This next mod adds a fully functioning interior and exterior location, which is supposed to replicate the famous Settlement. Inside, you’ll even find a Workbench allowing you to use the location as a new player home. However you shouldn’t expect to find any quests or NPC’s inside.
Plenty O’ Exploration
Our final mod to make this list is Plenty O’ Exploration. The developer of this mod states that he found Concord to be quite disappointing, as most of the buildings are boarded up. For that reason, they went ahead and added 9 new interiors, and 7 exteriors. Most of the interiors can be found in the town of Concord.
