Today Bethesda Softworks announced that the issue that prevented Fallout and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition from having mod support on PS4 has been solved with Sony.
Skyrim Special Edition will be the first to get mod support on October 28th, but those are not the only good news for PlayStation fans, as the game will render on native 4K on PlayStation 4 Pro. You can see a few screenshots of how it’ll look at the bottom of the post.
Unfortunately mods on PS4 won’t be able to use external assets (IE: new textures), but just those already in the game.
Fallout 4 will also get mod support down the line, alongside PS4 Pro features, icnluding 4K support (even if it’s unspecified whether it’s upscaled or native) with enhanced lighting and graphics features.
Bethesda’s Vice President of Marketing Pete Hines posted on Twitter to thank Sony for working out the issue on mods, and also confirmed that the problem was the upload of external assets. Now that the possibility has been removed from the feature, quite evidently the issue disappeared.
Big thanks to the folks at @PlayStation who worked with us to get PS4 mod support out for Fallout 4 and Skyrim. Doesn’t happen without them.
