Sony Said 'Fine': Skyrim And Fallout 4 Getting Mod Support In PS4

After much cajoling from Bethesda, and possibly protest from fans, Sony changed their minds from their initial decision that they won't be supporting mods in PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 4 Pro for the games Skyrim and Fallout 4. After dejected PS4 owners felt like it wasn't going to happen, Bethesda finally announced that Skyrim and Fallout 4 are indeed getting mod support from the Sony platforms.

They Said Yes

Bethesda intitally blamed Sony for delaying (the inevitable in my opinion) the release of the Skyrim and PlayStation 4 mods to the platforms. If you don't know what mods are- they are modifications or alterations done to the game by the players themselves. Mods were initially only available to the PC and this I believe is the main reason why the games had the more following from PC gamers. Apparently, Sony didn't like the thought of players being able to do whatever they want to the game.

The new mod features will be available and included with the release of Bethesda's remaster version of the highly praised The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim:Special Edition coming this 28th of October. Support for 4k rendering on the PlayStatio 4 Pro will also be available.

Sony has a condition however, as they asked that players can't use external assets in the PS4 mod but can only use assets that came with the game. Bethesda was okay with it as the company noted that they worked hard with Sony to make modding in the PS4 possible. Bethesda also added, "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."
