‘Fallout 4’, ‘Skyrim Special Edition’ PS4 Mods Release Date, News & Update: Did Bethesda Really Show Mods?

Bethesda’s base of players are still reeling from the fact that mods are not arriving on the PS4 game console and frustration may have started among “Fallout 4” and “Skyrim Special Edition” gamers. With no game mods, players are left with no choice but to play the game by default.

Regardless of the setback, Bethesda claims that they will turn to other ways to offer “Fallout 4” and “Skyrim Special Editions” added flexibility. On how Pete Hines and company plan to do that is anyone’s guess.

Were there actually mods presented to Sony?

Some gamers have gone as far to question Bethesda on the mod use issue. Some cite the fact that Bethesda signed an exclusive agreement with Microsoft (for the Xbox game consoles) and singled out as one of the reasons why Sony shunned the mods for “Fallout 4” and “Skyrim Special Edition”.

Nevertheless, Hines assured gamers that Bethesda did present submit the mods and that Sony shunned them. And from there, any hope of better gaming experience for “Fallout 4” and/or “Skyrim Special Edition” was doused.

Tied up to that, some went as far as to ponder on whether Bethesda did work on mods at all for “Fallout 4” and “Skyrim Special Edition”. The response was expectedly similar and referred back to the same answer that these were declined by Sony.

Controversial or not, the verdict among gamers will be up in the air regardless of what Pete Hines and/or any Bethesda representative justifies. But the reality of it all is that game flexibility for “Fallout 4” and “Skyrim Special Edition” (and possibly “Elder Scrolls 6”) may never happen for the PS4.

The best thing to do now is to see how Bethesda can enhance “Fallout 4” and “Skyrim Special Edition” for the PS4. Given that they have been shut out and limited, such is a task that is looming to be insurmountable.
