Bethesda has been saying this for a while and most people know that there is some disagreement between Sony and the developers that delayed Fallout 4 mod support on PS4.
The Playstation 4 console is easily the most powerful one at the moment. PS4 Pro is much more powerful whereas Xbox One S is purely basking on some good titles and lots of compromises in the graphics department. It was evident in comparison videos of Battlefield 1 and other newly launched titles. Despite having a powerful hardware, Sony is very close minded about their software and wouldn’t allow Bethesda people to work on bringing mod support to the game.
Mods require larger file sizes as Fallout 4 is a fairly new game but Sony has been restricting it to just 900MB which will invariably affect mod quality. On the other side, Microsoft with a more open approach has already managed to bring mods for their platform owners and it has been such a smooth sail, especially when they could download all those amazing content previously developed for PCs.
If you are on the PS4 platform, this could be the time to wait with hope. Bethesda confirmed Fallout 4 is about to receive a title updater 1.8. It will not only bring mods to the console but will also fix a number of bugs, make performance better and fix crashing issues. The full patch note of the same has been posted on their official website and we have explored some of the important highlights that you should know.
Players experienced crashes when they tried to return to the main menu and get back into the game. Apart from fixing the issue, the developers have also fixed mod related stuff where the images wouldn’t load, rare crash error associated with unexpected data structure and increased the number of tiles displayed so players could browse lots of mods at once.
Mod support for Fallout 4 is available on PC and Xbox One console for a long time now whereas PS4 gamers are yet to experience the fun associated with it. The new title update is released on PC while Bethesda needs approval from Sony and Microsoft to roll it out on PS4, Xbox One consoles.
Once it is done, we expect Bethesda will work on adding mod support for Skyrimremastered edition on PS4 console. The number of mods for both these titles could be limited as Sony only allows internal assets to be used when running user made mods.
