However, it appears that the prayers of Playstation 4 players have been heard, as Bethesda have just announced that mods and 4K support will be coming to the PS4 and PS4 Pro, respectively. According to the new information from Bethesda, Skyrim Special Edition will render at native 4K and will come with mod support at launch.
“We’re excited to announce that mod support is coming to PlayStation 4 for both Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4. Additionally, we’ll also be supporting the new PlayStation 4 Pro with both titles. Skyrim will have these features when it launches on October 28. The new power of the PlayStation 4 Pro has allowed us to make Skyrim render in native 4k, and it looks better than ever.”
“Mod support will come to Skyrim first. We and Sony have worked hard to make this possible. Mods on PlayStation 4 will allow you to modify and create your own content by using our Creation Kit. You will not be able to upload external assets with your PlayStation 4 mods, but you will be able to use any assets that come with the game, as most mods do. By creating a Bethesda.net account, you’ll be able to browse and try mods right from within the game.”
As the above quote reads, mod support will come to Skyrim first, and following that Fallout 4 will be updated to (finally) support mods as well as the Playstation 4 Pro’s 4K capabilities. Fallout 4 will also take advantage of the extra power with improved lighting and additional graphical features.
