E3 is officially kicked off and to start things off, Bethesda showed Quake Champions. The second biggest highlight of the event so far came in the form of The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Special Edition.
It is a remaster to the original The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim title and features many graphical improvements including new snow and water shaders, improved depth of field, HD textures and much more. The Elder Scrolls title is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and according to Bethesda, it would support mods on consoles.
Mods is the feature introduced by Bethesda to the console market. Players will be able to download mods and uniquely customize their games.
The Special Edition is coming on October 28.
Mod support is already available on Xbox One and should arrive on PS4 in the coming weeks. However, there is a worry of mods being stolen.
Recently, many modders pelgrized mods, downloaded them from Nexus Mods, made little to no changes and uploaded to Bethesda.Net for Xbox One as their own.
Thankfully, Bethesda is taking them down and asking modders to report such content.
In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we request that anyone who believes their content was wrongfully uploaded to Bethesda.net formally submit a DMCA takedown request. Please Note: These reports should only come from mod authors and other copyright holders who believe their content was stolen.
Mod creators should be able to protect their content with help from Bethesda. We hope this issue won’t spread from Fallout 4 to Skyrim Special Edition.
