Fallout 4/Skyrim Mods Coming To PS4 After All
After the debacle about Sony refusing to allow mods for Fallout 4 and Skyrim on PS4, they and Bethesda have finally made amends and mods will for sure be coming to Playstation 4.
"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."
"Mod support will come to Skyrim first. We and Sony have worked hard to make this possible. Mods on PlayStation 4 will allow you to modify and create your own content by using our Creation Kit available here. You will not be able to upload external assets with your PlayStation 4 mods, but you will be able to use any assets that come with the game, as most mods do. By creating a Bethesda.net account, you’ll be able to browse and try mods right from within the game."
"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."
The only catch about this is that a player can only use assets provided by Bethesda. That means no lightsabers, no audio of Jeff Goldblum's laugh from Jurassic Park, and no skins that would otherwise be licensed like a Superman or Spider-Man skin. This will be disappointing to most fans as the main reason to use mods is the hilarity that ensues when beating up a dragon with a giant purple dildo a la Saints Row. However, this is a step in the right direction because it's possible that mods may never have come to the PS4 without Bethesda speaking out.
