Fallout 4 and Skyrim Mods Won't Come to PS4 Anymore
Unfortunate news PlayStation 4 users, it seems like Sony isn't cooperating with Bethesda on bringing mods to Fallout 4, and the upcoming Skyrim Special Edition, as originally planned.
Plans for bringing mods to consoles were first announced last E3 when Bethesda was showing off Fallout 4. Mod support was planned to hit Xbox One first, with PS4 support to follow. While mods have been available on Xbox One for some time now, it seems like PS4 will not be getting them at all. In an update on the Bethesda website, it seems like Sony isn't willing to approve letting users mod however they wish. You can read the full statement below.
After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to offer mod support on PlayStation 4, Sony has informed us they will not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition.
Like you, we are disappointed by Sony’s decision given the considerable time and effort we have put into this project, and the amount of time our fans have waited for mod support to arrive. We consider this an important initiative and we hope to find other ways user mods can be available for our PlayStation audience. However, until Sony will allow us to offer proper mod support for PS4, that content for Fallout 4 and Skyrim on PlayStation 4 will not be available.
We will provide an update if and when this situation changes.
