    The PlayStation 4 versions of Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition will get mod support after all, Bethesda Softworks announced today. That’s a welcome reversal from September, when Bethesda said that promised mod support on PS4 wasn’t coming, due to unspecified restrictions from Sony.

    Mod support will come to the PS4 version of Skyrim first, Bethesda said on its website. The remastered version of Skyrim launches on PS4 (and Xbox One) on Oct. 28.

    Skyrim Special Edition will also support Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro, Bethesda said, with “native 4K” rendering available on the more powerful console.

    Bethesda said it plans to update Fallout 4 to support mods and PS4 Pro hardware after work on Skyrim Special Edition is complete. “We expect Fallout 4 to take advantage of the PS4 Pro in 4k along with enhanced lighting and graphics features,” the company added.

    Mod support for the console versions of Fallout 4 were announced earlier this year and were expected to be available on both platforms by June. Xbox One owners got mod support for Fallout 4 in May, while PS4 owners were forced to wait for reasons that were unclear.

    Fallout 4 and Skyrim mods can be developed using Bethesda’s Creation Kit, a free download from its website.

    Great to hear Sony came around, listened to Bethesda and stopped being lazy and arrogant.

    Seeing those ps4 pre-orders of the skyrim remaster drop like crazy after their initial decision must have gave them a kick in the arse.

    Can't wait to be playing these games at 4k on my pro. :biggrin:

      Bruv... SONY doesn't want people to mod on PS4. If Bethesda didn't want mods then why would XB1 and PC have the MOD CREATION KIT? (Sorry for the caps, can't use bold letters on comments :frown: )

      Wait you think that Bethesda was the ones holding back? :') Sony is the company being arrogant for not allowing these kind of features that Xbox enjoy because they think it'll jeopardise their already trash security (as noted by the group who broke into the systems firmware jailbreaking it).
