Bethesda Still Looking Into “Some Kind” Of PS4 Mod Support For Fallout 4 & Skyrim Remastered

It would appear that Bethesda is still actively looking into getting PS4 mod support for Fallout 4 and the upcoming Skyrim remaster.

Last week Bethesda announced that Fallout 4 and the remastered Skyrim won’t be getting mod support due to Sony not approving them the way they should work. Bethesda expressed to be disappointed by Sony’s decision.

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.

Following the announcement, the disappointment among PlayStation gamers was obvious. On Twitter, Bethesda’s VP Pete Hines has now responded to recent backlash and questions from the community regarding PS4 mod support.

Hines was asked how it’s possible that a game like “Farming Simulator 17” will support mods on the PS4, but Fallout 4 doesn’t. According to Bethesda’s VP this isn’t a fair comparison, and mod support for Fallout 4 and the upcoming Skyrim remaster is very different from mod support in “Farming Simulator”.

Although PS4 mods have now been officially deleted from Bethesda’s Fallout 4 mod site, it seems that Bethesda is still actively looking into getting some sort of mod support on the PS4. Hines notes however, that he can’t get into specifics.

Let’s hope that Bethesda finds a way to convince Sony to allow PS4 mod support for the upcoming Skyrim remaster and Fallout 4. Fallout 4 already supports mods on PC and Xbox one.
