Skyrim & Fallout 4 PS4 Mod Support Is Happening, Bethesda Confirms

October 5, 2016Written by Jason Dunning


Less than a month after revealing that Sony wouldn’t allow proper mod support for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition on PlayStation 4, Bethesda has announced that PS4 mod support and PS4 Pro support is coming to both games.

You’ll have to wait for the Fallout 4 PS4 mod support, but The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition will support both mods and the PS4 Pro on launch day, October 28. “The new power of the PlayStation 4 Pro has allowed us to make Skyrim render in native 4K, and it looks better than ever,” Bethesda said. The above screenshot shows off how Skyrim looks on PS4 Pro.

Bethesda explained how mods will work on PS4, including how you won’t be able to upload external assets:

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 account, you’ll be able to browse and try mods right from within the game.

For Skyrim mods, Bethesda adds that they “hope to do even more in the coming year for all our players, regardless of platform.”

Once all of the work is complete on Skyrim, Bethesda will begin work on updating Fallout 4 to support mods and the PS4 Pro. “We expect Fallout 4 to take advantage of the PS4 Pro in 4K along with enhanced lighting and graphics features,” they said.
