Bethesda Softworks hasn’t exactly been weathering the best of storms recently, especially with the news that Fallout 4 wouldn’t be receiving mods on PS4 after all. As it turns out, this will also be the case for the upcoming The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition. And when you factor in news like Farming Simulator 17 being able to run mods, it all looks a little silly.

That being said, just because one game can run mods on PS4 doesn’t mean every single game is capable of the same. Bethesda VP of marketing and PR Pete Hines noted that with regards to Fallout 4 and Farming Simulator 17 being in the same boat, “Lots of things can follow under the umbrella of ‘mods’ but are very different technically and in scope/scale.”

He also said the functionality of mods for something like DOOM (or for that matter Farming Simulator 17) differs greatly from a game like Fallout 4 or Skyrim. “A number of games support user mods of some kind. Including DOOM. None do what Fallout 4/Skyrim does.”

As for the current situation with PS4 mods, Hines said, “We can’t get into specifics. We still want to get mod support of some kind out on PS4.”

What are your thoughts on the whole situation? Let us know in the comments below.

      Well they tried, Sony just can’t give any freedoms the rest of us gamers are used to.

      Sony, this is Sony’s fault…shesh….Freaking read the article.

      I did read article. This isn’t Sony’s fault. It’s Bethesda’s fault. They haven’t given any specifics on what has transpired between the two. Microsoft more than likely paid Bethesda off, to keep the mods away from Sony. If you want to believe the lies this moron is telling you, go right ahead

    • Rob Jones

      Right. And Sony haven’t taken legal action against Bethesda for publicly telling lies about them because…?

    • Kyle Nitro Gowling

      Because you can slander a company without repercussions, whereas, you slander a person, you can get sued.

      Do you work for Sony or something?
