Skyrim: Special Edition Mods Will Have Their Own Allocated Space

As Skryim: Special Edition is coming to consoles, Xbox One owners started worrying about allocated space for mods. In fact, Fallout 4 mods currently have an allocated space limit of 2 GB on Xbox One and it would be hard for players to handle this little space for multiple game mods, especially with Skyrim: Special Edition Mods.

Anyway, answering to a fan’s question on Twitter, Pete Hines claimed that Skyrim will have its own allocated space for mods because “usually consoles allocate space on a per-title basis, not across a developer/publisher/initiative”.

So Bethesda fans on Xbox One can sleep peacefully, since 2 more GB will be provided for mods.

However the download size for Skyrim: Special Edition has been revelead through the Australian Xbox Store, and it seems this title will weigh something like 22.75 GB. So prepare to delete useless game updates and stuff like that.

Skyrim: Special Edition will include all DLCs and updated textures, just for your information, and PC users who already own the old version of Skyrim will be able to upgrade the game for free.

By the way PlayStation 4 users won’t get the mod support as Bethesda and Sony haven’t come to terms yet.

This is what Bethesda shared about this question:

After months of discussion with Sony, they 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.

Like you, we are disappointed by Sony’s decision given the considerable time and effort we have put into this project, and the big amount of time our fans have waited for mod support to arrive. We think 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.

Skyrim: Special Edition is scheduled to release on October 28, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
