In the beginning of this month, Bethesda announced that Sony will not be working together with them in order to approve user mods as they should work on PS 4. As such, gamers will not be able to do whatever they want for Skyrim Special Edition or Fallout 4. Meanwhile, Bethesda declared that they hope to find some other ways to make mods available for PlayStation users. However, this cannot happen until Sony agrees to it.
Pete Hines, who works as the VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda, was shown a video made by fans containing 3 ways in which mods could get included on PS4. Hines actually responded and said that the company doesn’t lack alternatives for this problem. He added that they are trying to do everything they can to offer PlayStation gamers a great experience.
Another tweet came from a user who asked Hines why is the company only blaming Sony, when obviously they signed an exclusivity deal with the rival Microsoft. Hines denied and said that it’s not true and that if it were up to them, they would have introduced mods on PS4 long time ago.
They have also received some other accusations from Twitter users, claiming that they never even started to work on mods. Hines denied this too and said that they actually did them and even submitted them to Sony, but they were declined.
The representative talked about some other things too, such as the fact that there will be no more DLC available for Fallout 4. Moreover, it seems that the Trophy list on the Skyrim Special Edition for PS4 is similar to the PS3 one and we will be getting more footage from the Skyrim Special Edition before the official release that will take place on October 28.
