Sony doesn’t allow Fallout 4 or Skyrim mods on PS4
Bethesda has been facing a lot of flak for not being able to fulfill its promise of bringing Fallout 4 mods to both Xbox One and PS4 consoles. The developer had announced that it’ll be bringing mod support for both the devices.
Here’s Bethesda’s full statement on the lack of mod support on PS4:
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.
“It’s been a rough couple of days for Sony, and this news isn’t going to help any. Fallout and Elder Scrolls are two of the biggest franchises in gaming, and Sony is going to want every bullet point it can get to argue why their console is the one to play them on. This news follows the reaction to the PlayStation 4 Pro which has been less than stellar, with many wondering how attractive the few technical upgrades would be to consumers.
Xbox and its execs have been having a grand, old time, though, bragging that their cheaper Xbox OneS can do things the PS4 Pro can’t, and, not so subtly pointing out that the Xbox One has mods that, for now, the PS4 won’t be getting.”
