Skyrim Special Edition releases next week for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, part of the launch includes the support for mods, however, there is a catch. Skyrim Special Edition mods on PlayStation 4 are limited to using just 1GB space and can only use in-game assets. Xbox One, on the other hand, will support 5GB space for mods and can use external assets.
As the PlayStation 4 only allows Bethesda to allow mods which use in-game assets, the 1GB could suffice as the mod doesn’t need to contain external assets like textures and audio. This does mean that there will be no Thomas the Tank Engine or Macho Man Randy Savage dragons for PlayStation 4 owners.
The Xbox One is upping the limit from 2GB which Fallout 4 was allocated to 5GB for Skyrim Special Edition. This increase still pales in comparison to what you can do on PC but it is a gradual move in the right direction for those games that support mods on consoles.
Skyrim Special Edition launches for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the 28th October 2016.
