Fallout 4 mods were inevitable. Especially when Todd Howard announced that mods would be able to download on all systems that support Fallout 4. And yet, one Fallout 4 mod has ticked off an incredibly high power…Major League Baseball!
In case you didn’t know, or forgot, Fallout 4 is set in Boston. A post-apocalyptic Boston, but Boston nonetheless. And like previous Fallout 4 games, the designers made many a landmark of our Boston and put it into the game…with a few exceptions as fans noticed. Mainly, memorabilia of the Boston Red Sox. So, one Texas gamer named Richie Branson decided to fix that. And made a Fallout 4 mod that would not only give you the look of a Boston Red Sox player, but you’ll look like living legend David Ortiz.
“Basically, I think it was the only thing missing from the game. You’ve got Fenway Park, the Green Monster, and all of Boston, but there weren’t any Red Sox jerseys,” he said to the Boston Globe
Why Ortiz? Well…it was the obvious choice apparently:
“Ortiz is a heavy hitter, man. I love his ability to hit. He’s big, he’s massive — so I figured he’d be the right one to survive the apocalypse,” Branson said Thursday morning. “You can wear it through the whole game.”
MLB on the other hand believe this is infringement on their copyrights, even though the mod is being given away for free.
The mod has not been taken down as of yet, but it could be in MLB pushes the issue.
