Alas! After the E3 announcement where Bethesda said that they will be bringing the power of mods to consoles, allowing you modify your game as you please, Bethesda recently posted on their website that Sony will not allow the support for mods on the Playstation 4.
Here’s what the announcement reads:
“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.”
Meanwhile, it looks like the Xbox One crowd will be able to enjoy the power of mods, bringing the console one step closer to the PC. ‘Tis a sad day for the Playstation fans.
