PlayStation owners who have eagerly been awaiting mods for Fallout 4 and mods for the upcoming Skyrim Special edition have some bad news to hear from Bethesda.
After being available on the Xbox One version of Fallout 4 for months and under review from Sony, Bethesda has announced that mods will not be available for either game on the Playstation 4.
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. We consider 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

This is a huge blow for the games fans, who include a very devoted mod scene. Bethesda has noted that things could possibly change and they will keep their fans updated. It might change after the fan reaction.
