The Xbox One has been enjoying mods in Fallout 4 for a while now, bringing one the of PC platform’s advantages to consoles. Those mods were meant to be coming to PlayStation 4 as well – but it looks like Sony and Bethesda have had a bit of a falling out.
In a new blog update, Bethesda says PS4 mods for Fallout 4 and the impending Skyrim remaster have been canned.
“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.
We will provide an update if and when this situation changes.”
It seems as though Sony’s the real roadblock here. Mods work just fine on Fallout 4 for Xbox One – and will work just fine for the Skyrim Remaster as well.
