"The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition" will not have mod support, as announced by Bethesda. The game developer revealed that Sony Interactive Entertainment refuses to approve the user mods the way they must work.

Based on a released statement, Bethesda said that following months of discussion with Sony, the Japanese company decided not to approve the user mods the way they must work, where the players can do anything they wish to do for Elder Scrolls.

Bethesda expressed their regrets over Sony's decision, considering the time and effort that was given in the project, including the number of fans that have anticipated the mod support. However, the game developer is hoping to find some ways that user mods may be available for the PlayStation users. Nevertheless, Bethesda believes that the content for "Elder Scrolls" on PS4 will not be available until Sony allows them to provide the proper mod support for the console, Gematsu reported.

The "Elder Scrolls: Skyrim" Special Edition is going to feature the content from its original game, which includes the post-release DLC, except for the Kinect voice commands. According to reports, the game will include the "Heartfire Home Improvements" DLC, the "Dragonborn" add-on, featuring a new location, and the "Dawnguard" questline and expansion. In addition to this, the players are allowed to download them to their consoles as soon as they are released online.

The forthcoming "The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Remastered" on the other hand, will also contain new and improved visuals when it is launched on Oct. 28 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. "The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition" fans can now pre-load and pre-order the game.

However, the PC user with a Skyrim and all DLC copy can get the upgrade for free. "The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Remastered" DLC is also automatically installed, which means the users will not be required to re-download while they play, Express reported.
