PlayStation gamers might still get mod support for Fallout 4 and Skyrim in the future. After Bethesda announced last week that the mods for the said titles would be not be coming, marketing chief Pete Hines said the company are still trying to get mod support for PS4 console.
In a post on Twitter, Hines said: "We still want to get mod support of some kind out on PS4." Bethesda's marketing chief does want to get into specifics about the mod support but his statement is good news for fans. It is reported that Hines would find a way to convince Sony to allow PS4 mod support for the upcoming Skyrim remaster and Fallout 4.
For those unaware, Sony, the creator of PS4 console, did not approve mod support for the remastered Skyrim and Fallout 4. Following the announcement, Bethesda expressed its "disappointment" by Sony's decision.
On its official website, Bethesda officials wrote that they have long been ready to offer mod support on PS4, but Sony has effectively blocked mods. Game modification allows gamers to change different aspects of a game, such as graphics, sounds and many more. However, Sony said user's contents are too unpredictable.
For the part of PlayStation gamers, their disappointment is obvious. On Twitter, Hines received a backlash and questions from the community regarding PS4 mod support. When asked how it's possible that a game like "Farming Simulator 17" gets mod support but Fallout 4 and Skyrim do not, Hines said it is not a fair comparison. He explained that mod support for Fallout 4 and the Skyrim remaster is very different from Farming Simulator.
Bethesda previously said Fallout 4 mods for PS4 will be released for Sony's current-gen platform in June. After that, the company reportedly encountered some technical problems and decided to release mods on July, which did not happen.
On the other hand, Bethesda said the remastered version of Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim will come with plenty of mods on Oct. 28, 2016. And as we already know, it would not happen because of Sony's decision.
Meanwhile, the PC version of Skyrim, which released in 2011, is filled with creative mods that enrich player's gaming experience. For Fallout 4, it has already mod support on PC and Xbox One.
We hope Hines would convince Sony officials to reconsider its decision about PS4 mod support for Skyrim and Fallout 4. Stick with us for more update.
