As most probably know by now, the long-standing row between Bethesda and Sony has finally been (somehow) settled. Mods for “Fallout 4” and “Skyrim Special Edition” will be made available to PS4 gamers though there are things to note.

As mentioned in a previous post, mods for “Skyrim Special Edition” will come out first on Oct. 28, something that will include renders in native 4K for the PS4 Pro. There is no official word yet on when the mods for “Fallout 4” will be released though it will reportedly provide support for enhanced lighting and other graphic features, Forbes reported.

Game mod limitations and restrictions
While the coming of the mods for “Skyrim Special Edition” and “Fallout 4” bring a big sigh of relief, there are limitations that come with it. This includes the ability of gamers to use the assets which are only available in the game.

Hence, this excludes some flexibility since it all boils down to what the game codes of “Fallout 4” and “Skyrim Special Edition”. Players will need to purchase a PS4 copy of the game they want to mod and purchase a separate copy of the DLC as well, Gaming Bolt reported. The mods can be acquired via download from BNet.

Mods part of a process

Looking through it all, using mods for either “Fallout 4” or “Skyrim Special Edition” will follow a certain process. Mods will not be automatically installed meaning users will have to do that separately. This accounts for better control and responsibility, a far cry from what the Microsoft Xbox and PC have to offer.

It remains to be seen if Sony will ease up (more) on the use of game mods though this will have to do for now. Modding does a bit of flare to games like “Fallout 4” and “Skyrim Special Edition” but apparently depends on the type of system that would be used.
