There will be mod limitations on the console versions of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition similar to Fallout 4, though the limitations are more severe on one console than it is the other. It has now been revealed that the Xbox One version of the game will allow up to 5 GB of space for mods, though the PlayStation 4 version allows just 1 GB of space for mods.
While having less space for mods on one console compared to the other is definitely a bummer, considering that the PlayStation 4 version wasn’t going to be getting mods at all not that long ago this is definitely better than nothing. PS4 players also won’t have access to external assets, which is one of the biggest causes of large file sizes.
“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,” read the mod announcement from Bethesda. “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. Here are some screens to show you just how great it looks.”
The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 28th.
