Fallout 4 fans playing on the PlayStation 4 have been waiting for an update that would provide mod support for a considerable amount of time now, but unfortunately it was for nothing. Mod support will not be coming to the PS4 version of Fallout 4 after all, despite it being anticipated.
Bethesda posted an update about the situation, explaining that mod support for Fallout 4 has been cancelled following discussions with Sony.
The way Bethesda normally handles mods is to allow users to create the mods they want for the game. However, Sony “will not approve user mods the way they should work.”
Bethesda expressed its regrets at having to deliver this news, especially after having worked toward PS4 mod support for so long, and promised to update fans if anything changes and they find a way to bring mods to the PS4.
Fallout 4 is not the only game affect by this news. Skyrim Special Edition, which also was planned to have mod support, will not have PS4 mods, either.
This is disappointing news for Fallout 4 fans, especially since the PC and Xbox One versions of Fallout 4 both have mod support and the PS4 version was supposed to be next in line. However, it doesn’t look like there anything anyone can do about it now.
Understandably, fans are upset about the news. At least Bethesda explained the situation—and announced it ahead of Skyrim Special Edition’s release date, so fans who only want it with mod support will know it won’t be available if they get the PS4 version. Nevertheless, that isn’t much comfort to players who were looking forward to it.
How do you feel about the news that the PS4 version of Fallout 4 will never be updated with mod support? Do you blame Sony for the decision? Do you think Bethesda should have accepted what Sony had in mind, even though it wouldn’t allow mod approvals to work in the usual way? Let us know in the comments.
