It looks like mod support for the PS4 versions of The Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4 may still be in the cards after all. Last week, Bethesda announced that it would not be able to bring the feature to the console after months of negotiations with Sony. It blamed the company for being too rigid with their policies on user uploaded content, saying that the console?s current restrictions do not allow for the feature to be implemented as intended.
Skyrim Remastered Mods Still Possible Says Bethesda
?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.? Read the official announcement on the Bethesda website.
However, a recent Twitter exchange between a fan and Bethesda VP Pete Hines has reignited hope that mod support for PS4 isn?t dead yet.?The conversation began when Hines was questioned as to why a game like?Farming Simulator 2017 can have mods on the PS4 while Bethesda games can?t. He responded saying that the complexity of a Skyrim or Fallout mod was far greater than that of other games.
Later, another user asked Hines to delve deeper into the reasons why Bethesda couldn?t deliver mod support. His reply:??we can’t get into specifics. we still want to get mod support of some kind out on ps4.?
How exactly Bethesda plans to do this or when it might come remains unclear. But it?s good to know that they haven?t given up.?Hopefully, we see the feature come to both Skyrim Remastered and Fallout 4 some time in the future.
