Bethesda adds mod and 4K support to Skyrim and Fallout on PS4

first_imgPlayStation 4 fans, rejoice! Bethesda has announced that mod support will be coming to both Fallout 4 and the upcoming Skyrim Special Edition. On top of that, the company has also revealed that Skyrim will be playable in native 4K on the PlayStation 4 Pro.Mods have been available on the Xbox One version of Fallout 4 ever since May of this year and were supposed to be on PS4 that following June. After a few delays, Bethesda announced that it wouldn’t have mods on PS4 because Sony wouldn’t allow them. We don’t know why Sony didn’t want Fallout 4 mods on PS4, but given how some have reported issues with mods on Xbox One, it is possible that Sony wanted Bethesda to better QA user created mods in order to potentially avoid damaging users’ PlayStation 4 systems.The first game to get mod support will be Skyrim Special Edition on October 28. PS4 owners will be able to create mods using the in-game Creation Kit. Players will not be able to upload external assets with their PS4 mods. Instead, they can use assets that are already in the game. If you have a Bethesda account, you can check out mods right from within the game.After Skyrim Special Edition is completed and released, Bethesda will work on updating Fallout 4 with mods and PS4 Pro support. Like Skyrim, the game will be playable in 4K and feature enhanced lighting and visuals. Skyrim will of course be be getting new textures and other visual enhancements, but they should look even more impressive on PS4 Pro, especially at native 4K resolution.We may never know exactly what happened behind closed doors to get Sony and Bethesda to cooperate on this, but I guess that isn’t important right now. What matters is that anyone who has Fallout 4 or Skyrim can enjoy user created mods. In the end, everyone wins.last_img read more
