An ongoing rift between Sony and Bethesda has put out any possibility of “Fallout 4” PS4 mods. They are not appearing anytime soon and hence Bethesda is reportedly looking for other alternatives. The rift has also put to question mod support for the upcoming remastered version of “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.”

Bethesda announced Sony’s rejection of mod support via its blog stating that Sony had disapproved the use of mods on its console. However, many fans are a bit sceptical as to how Bethesda put the blame on Sony, writes Mobile & Apps.

They believe the real reason why Sony has refused mod support is Bethesda’s exclusivity with Microsoft. But this has been denied by Pete Hines, Bethesda VP, on Twitter.

“That is absolutely not true. We would have released mods on PS4 some time ago if it was up to us. We were told no,” Hines said while replying to a query.

Refusal of mod support by Sony would mean bad days for Bethesda’s “Fallout 4” and the upcoming “Skyrim” remastered version. In fact, many PS4 players have already stated that they would not buy “Skyrim” due to the lack of mods.

According to iDigitalTimes, Mr. Meeseeks187 tweeted a video, uploaded by “Hey I’m Starlord” on YouTube, to Hines describing how PS4 users can use three methods through which they can enjoy mod-like features without having Sony’s mod support.

Hines replied to the tweet saying Bethesda doesn’t lack alternatives and that the developer is trying everything possible to bring mod support to PS4 players. This somewhat is positive news as PS4 players may not be totally disappointed after all. “Fallout 4” is available on PC, Xbox One and PS4 with mod support available for the first two.

“Fallout 4” creators have generally been against commands because of their sometimes negative impact on system performance and stability. Moreover, selling mods as DLC will also be unlikely as Bethesda would have to get everything tested and certified from the PlayStation Network.
