Back in June, Bethesda announced mod support wasn’t coming to PlayStation 4 versions of its games. Apparently, this was because of Sony and certification issues, but it caused one hell of a backlash none the less.
But now things have changed. And because of this, it turns out the PS4 versions of these games will get mod support after all! Here’s the company’s statement about it with the good news!
We’re excited to announce that mod support is coming to PlayStation 4 for both Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4.
Mod support will come to Skyrim first. We and Sony have worked hard to make this possible. Mods on PlayStation 4 will allow you to modify and create your own content by using our Creation Kit available here. You will not be able to upload external assets with your PlayStation 4 mods, but you will be able to use any assets that come with the game, as most mods do. By creating a Bethesda.net account, you’ll be able to browse and try mods right from within the game.
We are excited finally to get modding to our PlayStation fans who have supported us for so long. Modding has been an important part of our games for over 10 years, and we hope to do even more in the coming year for all our players, regardless of platform.
After the work is complete on Skyrim, we’ll be updating Fallout 4 for both mods and PS4 Pro.
So if you like playing with mods on Fallout 4 and Skyrim, you’ll now be able to use them on the PlayStation 4 version of the game. Hooray for good news!
