This morning, Bethesda wrote a blog post about the situation with Fallout 4 Mods on Playstation 4. Unfortunately, it looks like Sony has denied that use of mods on PS4. Here is the statement from Bethesda, which you can also read HERE –
“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.”
Bethesda has been working on mod support on Playstation for several months now. In light of how long they have been trying to get mods on Playstation, this new is really disappointing news. We can see how popular mods are on PC and Xbox One. It’s important to point out that mod support will not be available on Skyrim Special Edition. Considering how many fun mods there were on Skyrim, I for one would be disappointed if I owned either game on Playstation.
What do you guys think of the news? Are you disappointed? Or do you play mods on other systems? Let us know in the comments below!
