PlayStation fans awaiting Mod support for Fallout 4 were dealt a blow today when Bethesda announced that Sony have yet to approve them. Xbox One and PC fans have been enjoying mods for months with PS4 support slated for June, but now the timescale is unknown, if it happens at all.
In a post on their website, Bethesda said:
“After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to offer mod support on 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.”
The announcement when on to say;
“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. We consider this an important initiative and we hope to find other ways user mods can be available for our PlayStation audience. However, until Sony will allow us to offer proper mod support for PS4, that content for Fallout 4 and Skyrim on PlayStation 4 will not be available.”
Ps4 players did briefly get mods back in June but they were plagued with problems, causing a delay. Bethesda vice president of marketing and PR Pete Hines tweeted about the wait, saying the company was working with Sony but also hinting that Sony were the ones holding things up.
This development doesn’t bode well for fans awaiting the mods and only time will tell if they go forward at all.
