The Fallout 4 Sim Settlements 2 mod has been announced by the team behind one of the most popular and robust mods for Bethesda's open-world sci-fi RPG, but not every platform will be getting this upgrade.
Like many Bethesda Softworks games, Fallout 4 has hundreds of mods available to fix bugs, enhance gameplay, or let you do downright silly things like put anime characters into the game. Some of the more robust mods can substantially add to the gameplay, and one of these mods is about to get a serious upgrade.
"Sim Settlements 2 is a mod for Fallout 4 that asks - what if there was a reason for my character to help rebuild settlements?" read the mod's official website.
"In it, you'll meet Jake, who will take you through a story of rebuilding the Commonwealth and battling the forces that would prevent it; which we'll be continuing across a series of large chapter releases after launch."
The official website for the mod is somewhat light on concrete details, unfortunately. As best as we can tell, it looks like this mod is going to be a serious upgrade for existing systems and story content in the original Sim Settlements mod — but not everyone is going to get to play it.
The Fallout 4 Sim Settlements 2 Mod Won't Be Coming to PS4
While a new version of this massive settlement mod is surely welcome news to many players, not everyone will be getting it. This mod will be making its way to PC and Xbox One very soon, but it won't be launching on the PS4.
"[Sim Settlements 2] will be available on Xbox, though not on PS4 due to Sony's restrictions," read the mod's F.A.Q. "Xbox users: the file sizes to get all content are quite large so we'll be looking into tiered releases to get you various functionality at smaller sizes."
When is the Fallout 4 Sim Settlements 2 Mod Release Date?
There is not yet a firm Fallout 4 Sim Settlements 2 mod release date. However, the mod's F.A.Q. does hint that we won't have to wait too long to play it in a question that asks when the mod will be coming out.
"Incredibly soon! We'll include a date in a gameplay trailer in the next few weeks, just need to make sure we have everything in a good spot before we promise a date."
You may be able to play the Fallout 4 Sim Settlements 2 mod sometime before the end of 2020, although it's entirely possible that the mod won't launch until early 2021. For now, you can keep apprised of what's going on by visiting the Sim Settlements 2 website or exploring the original mod's community at simsettlements.com.
