Will they, won’t they, first Bethesda announces that Sony has declined any mod support for Skyrim on the PlayStation 4, but in the latest blog post, the studio says that both Skyrim SE and Fallout 4 are going to get mods on the PS 4. Geez, make up your mind, will you?
But cribbing aside, it’s time for PS 4 players to rejoice. Why? Because not only will both your favourite Bethesda titles be getting mod support for the PS 4, but Skyrim will also have native 4K support for the PS 4 Pro right from the launch date. Here’s the official announcement:
“We’re excited to announce that mod support is coming to PlayStation 4 for both Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4. Additionally, we’ll also be supporting the new PlayStation 4 Pro with both titles.
Skyrim will have these features when it launches on October 28. The new power of the PlayStation 4 Pro has allowed us to make Skyrim render in native 4k, and it looks better than ever. Here are some screens to show you just how great it looks.
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. We expect Fallout 4 to take advantage of the PS4 Pro in 4k along with enhanced lighting and graphics features.
Thanks again for all your support. We can’t wait to hear about your new adventures.”
The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Special Edition is set to release this month on the 28th for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. What’s more, PC users who own the Legendary Edition of the game or the game and all its DLCs individually on Steam will get the Special Edition for free.
