It took a while! It certainly took a while, but Sony have relented, and now Bethesda games, such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout 4 and Doom will be getting mod and 4k support on PlayStation 4 – according to this post on the official Bethesda website.
The official statement reads:
“We’re excited to announce that mod support is coming to PlayStation 4 for both Skyrim Special Edition and Fallout 4. Additionally, we’ll also be supporting the new PlayStation 4 Pro with both titles.
“Skyrim will have these features when it launches on October 28. The new power of the PlayStation 4 Pro has allowed us to make Skyrim render in native 4k, and it looks better than ever.”
The first game to get the mod support will be Skyrim, and once completed work will start on being able to bring that same support to Fallout 4. In order to modify or create your own content, you’ll need to use the Creation Kit and you’ll need to make sure you have a Bethesda.net account – information on both is available within the post linked above. And so far as the 4K support goes, check out these sample screenshots from the Bethesda site to show just how stunning it will be Real PlayStation Gamers…
This is undoubtedly great news for PlayStation gamers, and great news all in all for gaming – even if it was a bit longer in coming. What do you make of this? Let us know in the comments below, the RGM Forums or on Twitter.
