If The Force Awakens's upcoming release has you craving all things Star Wars, you might want to consider a few Fallout 4 mods released in the past two weeks. These mods bring several elements of Star Wars into the post-apocalyptic RPG.
Aspiring Jedi Knights can download a mod that replaces pool cues with lightsabers. The green lightsabers have a hefty 30 damage and custom sounds. Judging from the gameplay video below, they're great at carving up enemies.
The lightsabers are a work in progress, though. Right now they break when they're dropped. They also look a little off with solid green blades but the creator, xxdeathknight72xx, says that he'll add a glow effect in time. The lightsabers will eventually hum while equipped and also have new hit sounds as well.
The same modder also created a Death Star mod. It's not functional, sadly, so you won't be able to wipe out Alderaan anytime soon. Still, the space station looks pretty cool up up there in the sky. Maybe it'll be enough to distract you from all the non-Star Wars elements in the game:
To further the illusion that the Empire has taken over the Commonwealth, you can use this mod to add Galactic Empire flags. The Imperial flag replaces the United States' one, so you could use the mod as a political statement if you're so inclined:
I'm sure that most Fallout 4 players are waiting for mods that will add stormtrooper armor and other Star Wars outfits to the game. That's going to take a lot more effort than these other mods we've seen thus far. In the meantime, though, you can at least get your Pip-Boy ready. This "Black Trooper" mod makes your Pip-Boy black with red type, which means it would go really well with a Captain Phasma or Kylo Ren mod.
It's going to be great seeing what else the modding community builds in the coming months. I wouldn't be surprised to see blasters, rancors, wookiees and more.
