Fallout 4 mods have been available for PC and Xbox One from months, while the support of Sony PS4 which was originally scheduled for June, is nowhere on the scene.
Bethesda the developer of Fallout 4, not so clearly contrived that Sony was holding it up previously. And now it has been confirmed that the mods are not coming in Fallout 4 until and unless Sony changes its mind.
Today Bethesda stated on its website that, “After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to offer mod support on the 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.”
Apparently, Bethesda is trying its level best to make mods happen. Back in June, PS4 mods were available in beta, but then they ran into a critical problem, after which the mods went under evaluation of a joint venture of Sony and Bethesda.
It seems possible now when Bethesda has pointed its finger towards Sony, the public demand might be sufficient enough to add pressure on Sony to bring the mod support back to the market in PS4– though it may be an unconventional expectation.
Eventually, all we can do is hope that Sony allows Bethesda to offer proper mod supports for PS4 or this feature for Fallout 4 and Skyrim won’t be available on PlayStation 4.
So guys stay tuned for the latest update from Bethesda because gaming with mods is going to be quite an exciting experience. Meanwhile, Microsoft’s Xbox team seems very much interested in game mods. We’ve a tweet from a Xbox fellow.
I like mods. Made Skyrim so amazing (still does) on Windows. Will do the same on Xbox.
