PlayStation 4 gamers waiting for Fallout 4 user mods to come to their consoles are out of luck. Bethesda has posted a blog post stating that while they’ve been ready for some time now, Sony will not approve user mods for the console. Xbox One users have had access to Fallout 4 user mods since May, and will be able to do so with the upcoming Skyrim Special Edition.
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.
Bethesda went on to express their disappointment by Sony’s decision:
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.
As Microsoft has been doing lately, they wasted no time in capitalizing on the latest Sony disappointment with a series of tweets.
