Bethesda announced on its website that mods for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition are coming to PlayStation 4. Additionally both games will be supported on the PlayStation 4 Pro when it releases.
“We are excited to finally get modding to our PlayStation fans who have supported us for so long,” the announcement said. “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.”
Mods on PS4 will allow players to create custom content by using Bethesda’s Creation Kit available at their site, however they won’t be able to use external assets with the mods. But players will be able to use any assets that come with the game.
Skyrim Special Edition will receive mods and will run native 4K rendering on the PS4 Pro upon its release on October 28. Bethesda said that they will update Fallout 4 with mods and PS4 pro after work on Skyrim is completed.
“We and Sony have worked hard to make this possible,” the announcement said.
This announcement comes after disappointment in September when Bethesda told fans that mods would not be coming to the PS4 due to restrictions from Sony.
