The Special Edition also offers native 4K support for both PC and the PS4 Pro. In September 2016, Bethesda announced that Sony had blocked user-created mods from coming to the PS4 version of the game.However, in October 2016, they stated that Sony had rescinded their block and would allow the usage of player-made mods in the game, and explained the process by which players could create mods on console: Mods on PlayStation 4 will allow you to modify and create your own content by using our Creation Kit available here. You will not be able to upload external assets with your PlayStation 4 mods, but you will be able to use any assets that come with the game, as most mods do. By creating a Bethesda.net account, youﾒll be able to browse and try mods right from within the game. Other improvements: Bethesda employee Matt Grandstaff stated on Twitter that the Special Edition would be 64-bit.The Special Edition is also the first game in the series to offer use of the Creation Club to purchase mods licensed by Bethesda.
