One fan of Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG overhauls Fallout 4‘s existing radio stations by creating a mod that adds loads of historically accurate songs into the game.
For those Fallout 4 fans who are tired of hearing the same old songs play over and over on their Pip-Boys, the modder known as “efgh58” has thankfully updated the retro-futuristic title’s catalog of tunes with a fresh mod called Radio Enhanced. Now, instead of the familiar handful of musical compositions playing on an almost constant loop, Fallout 4 fans will be able to listen through a wide variety of 286 different songs that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also historically accurate to the game’s lore and themes.
The Radio Enhanced mod’s songs range from the 1930s all the way through the 1960s, and contains singles and b-sides like “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” by Louis Armstrong, “Tender Trap” by Frank Sinatra, “Folsom Prison Blues” by Johnny Cash, and so many more. Not to mention, efgh58’s creation for Fallout 4 adds quests for players to get new songs, and the modder even has plans to overhaul Radio Freedom, which is one of the stations found in the Boston Commonwealth Wasteland.
As is to be expected, with efgh58 having just recently released the mod for Fallout 4 this month, there are still some bugs and kinks to be worked out of the script. Until it gets completely ironed out, though, other fans are being encouraged to suggest songs to be added into Radio Enhanced, and they can do so right here.
Of course, no matter what the platform, lots of Fallout 4 fans will probably want to try out efgh58’s Radio Enhanced mod, and soon enough both PC and console players will be able to do so. Xbox One mods will be in beta soon, so owners of Microsoft’s system will get first dibs, and PlayStation 4 gamers will have to wait until sometime in June. With this being the case, fans researching for complementary user-made creations for Radio Enhanced would do well to check out the Green Mod, which turns the action-RPG’s landscape into settings similar to ones from The Last of Us.
In the meantime, those Fallout 4 fans on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One who wish to experience an updated library of songs will need to find a way to play music externally, or simply wait until console mods make their way to the game. Naturally, however, there are some folks who will just stick with the open world title’s original soundtrack, or play through without relying on radio stations altogether, but sometimes it’s fun to have some music on during any occasion, as a good song can change the mood entirely.
