Sony reverses its decision, will allow 'Fallout 4' and 'Skyrim' mods on PS4 after all
"We're excited to announce that mod support is coming to PlayStation 4 for both 'Skyrim Special Edition' and 'Fallout 4,'" the blog post says.
According to the post, mods will come first to "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition" for its release date on October 28, and later to "Fallout 4."
"We are excited finally to get modding to our PlayStation fans who have supported us for so long," the post continues. "Modding has been an important part of our games for over 10 years, and we hope to do even more in the coming year for all our players, regardless of platform."
If you're not familiar with the term, mods are user-created modifications that can be shared and downloaded by anyone - they might upgrade the visual fidelity of a game or add in new hairstyles, weapons, or clothing options. Historically, mods have been a feature exclusively available to the PC gaming community, so this new show of support from Sony is a significant step towards making mods available on its consoles for other games, too.
