Playstation 4 players will have mod support for Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Special Edition after all. Bethesda Softworks announced today that despite their saying in September that the games wouldn’t have mod support due to restrictions from Sony, they’ve managed to get around the restrictions and the games will get mod support after all.

Mod support will hit Skyrim when the remastered version releases on October 28th, while an update will be released for Fallout 4 to support both mods and PS4 Pro hardware at a later date. The announcement said, “We expect Fallout 4 to take advantage of the PS4 Pro in 4k along with enhanced lighting and graphics features.”

There will be one big limitation: you won’t be able to upload external assets with your PlayStation 4 mods, but you can use any assets that come with the game, which is the norm for most mods.
