Bethesda has made a statement on their website explaining that mod support will no longer be available as promised for Skyrim Special Edition or Fallout 4.
One of the hugest selling points from Skyrim’s E3 trailer was when they revealed that that the game would allow you to download and distribute user created mods on your console. Bethesda seemed all for mod support and had already started work on making sure it became a reality. Sony was not so excited, and told Bethesda they would not approve user mods.
“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.”
This is very unfortunate news for PlayStation fans, but hopefully the situation will change for the better soon. Stay tuned for updates.
