Sony wont allow Fallout 4 or Skyrim mods on PS4

first_imgBesides having graphical superiority, the biggest advantage the PC versions of Fallout games have had over their console counterparts are mods. With the release of Fallout 4, Bethesda announced mods would finally be coming to home systems. Fallout 4 on Xbox One was given mod support back in May, with the PS4 version due to get it in June. However, this was delayed because of technical difficulties. Despite that, Bethesda was hopeful it could eventually get mods on PS4.Unfortunately, mods won’t be coming to PS4 any time soon, if ever. A recent post on Bethesda’s site has revealed that Sony will not approve user mods as they now stand. This not only applies to Fallout 4, but also to the upcoming 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,” says Bethesda. “We consider this an important initiative and we hope to find other ways user mods can be available for our PlayStation audience.”Though the Xbox One version of Fallout 4 has had mod support for the last few months, it hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing. Users have reported a number of issues like crashes and bugs while playing with mods. We don’t know exactly what went into Sony’s decision to not allow user mods for Fallout 4, but it is possible that the company felt the instability of these mods isn’t something they wanted their customers to have to deal with. If that is the case, then the reason for not allowing user mods makes sense.Bethesda hasn’t completely ruled out mods for Fallout 4 on PS4 just yet, so it’s possible that we may see them in some form in the future. For now, however, it seems that mod support is exclusive to PC and Xbox One.last_img
