Bethesda has officially announced that no mods are coming to the PS4 versions of Fallout 4 or The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Remastered. This is all thanks to a policy from Sony.
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.
We will provide an update if and when this situation changes.
This is bad news as people had been waiting for Fallout 4 mods on PS4 for nearly a year now! Not to mention mods are readily available on PC and Xbox One.
