Huge news was delivered today by Bethesda as they announced that together with Sony mod support will be coming to both The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4 on PS4. Skyrim will have mod support at launch while Fallout 4 will get them in the near future.
We’re excited to announce that mod support is coming to PlayStation 4 for both Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4. Additionally, we’ll also be supporting the new PlayStation 4 Pro with both titles.
Skyrim will have these features when it launches on 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.
Like the statement above says Skyrim will also be getting native 4K support on PS4 Pro which is also huge news and gives Sony a great game to show off on their upgraded console. The two pictures included here are taken from Skyrim running in native 4K on PS4 Pro. Fallout 4 will also be getting 4K support in the future on PS4 Pro but Bethesda didn’t say yet whether it would be native or upscale. Here is the rest of Bethesda’s statement.
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 Bethesda.net account, you’ll be able to browse and try mods right from within the game.
We are excited finally to get modding to our PlayStation fans who have supported us for so long. 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.
After the work is complete on Skyrim, we’ll be updating Fallout 4 for both mods and PS4 Pro. We expect Fallout 4 to take advantage of the PS4 Pro in 4k along with enhanced lighting and graphics features.
It’s great news for fans who were disappointed and thought that they wouldn’t get mods on PS4. I always felt like they were still coming at some point and I’m happy to see Sony and Bethesda got it up and working. If you want the best experience playing Skyrim this year PS4 Pro is looking like the way to go. Let us know in the comments what you think of this turnaround of events.
