Soon PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be able to enjoy one of the greatest RPG games of all time, Skyrim. Many of the game’s features are the same on both platforms such as upgraded visuals and all DLC included in the box.
However, mod support is limited to Xbox One as Sony and Bethesda failed to come to terms on PS4 mod support for Skyrim: Remastered.
In a recent statement released by the company, Bethesda said:
After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to offer mod support on PlayStation 4, Sony has 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 amount of time our fans have waited for mod support to arrive.
Once the news broke, fans started to wonder if there are alternative ways to bring MOD support to PlayStation 4. In fact, Bethesda itself was exploring options.
One of the options that were discussed among the community is console commands to enable mod support.
However, Bethesda has confirmed that there are no console commands for Xbox One or PS4 versions of the game. This means that at least console commands aren’t the alternative option to bring Mod Support to PS4.
There are other ways such as adding them as Free DLC. Let’s wait and see how things are handled by Bethesda.
Skyrim: Remastered is releasing later this month.
