Fallout 4, Skyrim Special Edition Mod Support No Longer Coming To PlayStation 4


Before the release of Fallout 4 on PC and consoles, Bethesda confirmed that the console versions of their popular role playing game would be getting mod support, which is a first for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Xbox One version of Fallout 4 did get mod support a few months ago, but PlayStation 4 players are still waiting for the feature to come to their version of the game. Sadly, it seems like it will no longer be happening.

With a new post on its official website, Bethesda confirmed that mod support for Fallout 4 and the soon to be released The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition will not be coming to PlayStation 4, due to Sony not approving user mods the way they should work.

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.

Fallout 4 recently received its final DLC pack, called Nuka World. The pack includes plenty of additional content such a new area to explore and new features that enhance the experience considerably.

Fallout 4 is now available in all regions on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
