Bethesda has plans to continue pushing mods for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition so that they work the same on both Xbox One and Playstation 4 systems.

Responding to a fan on Twitter who asked whether Bethesda has plans to offer equal mod support on Xbox One and Playstation 4, Pete Hines said that the studio already tried, but things did not work out with Sony.

Bethesda to Continue Pushing Skyrim Special Edition Mods on PS4



The issue initially started with Bethesda claiming that Sony did not approve Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition mods “the way they should work”. A few weeks later, however, it was confirmed that Playstation 4 would support Skyrim Special Edition mods, but without any external assets.

Despite the mod support, the decision greatly limited the amount of user mods that could run on Playstation 4. Moreover, mod space on Playstation 4 is set at 1GB while the Xbox One goes as high as 5GB. From the looks of it, seems like Bethesda is doing all it can to make the mods work the same on both consoles, but the eventual decision lies with Sony alone.

In related Skyrim news, the Skyrim Frostfall mod is now available on Xbox One. The mod aims at turning the game into a more immersive experience with new menaces like hypothermia and weird weather conditions. Moreover, the mod also adds 13 new spells to the game.
