Bethesda quieted a few angry hordes today by going back on previous statements and confirming mod support for Fallout 4 and Skyrim on PS4.
Last month, the Maryland based developer said that they would not be bringing mods to their games on PS4 due to unclear issues with Sony. Meanwhile, Fallout 4 fans on Xbox have been enjoying their mods since May.
It seems the angry backlash caused something to be done behind the scenes, as Skyrim Special Edition will have mod support when it launches on Oct. 28. Once work is done on this, Bethesda said they would work on patching in mod support for Fallout 4.
The statement from Bethesda read:
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.
Bethesda bridged the gap between PC and console gaming when it introduced the Bethesda Creation Kit, a free tool that allows console gamers to mod to their hearts desires. It introduces modding to many people who did not have access to a state of the art gaming PC, so it is sure to be a welcome addition to the PS4 repertoire.
In addition, Bethesda also announced 4K support for both titles on the PS4 Pro, with Skyrim actually rendering in native 4K.
