Skyrim for Nintendo Switch will not support mods

It is confirmed that, in the beginning, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch will not support mods.


News that may not fit very well with some people. The case is that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch will not support mods. This was confirmed by none other than Pete Hines, vice president of Bethesda Softworks in an interview with US Gamer.

According to Hines, at least in the beginning, this kind of extras will not be supported, which is a shame. The fact is that the company had nothing planned on it, which is understandable. Surely they were more worried that the game would run well on the console with all its options, and would support from the outset all the official content.

We will have to see if The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch will be compatible at some point with that option. If you need space, you will have to use SD cards. But who knows how friendly the console is with these types of extras, because as you imagine it is not an open platform like the PC.

Until now it was confirmed that this game is a Special Edition but adapted to the portable environment. Most of all because many of the added elements come from that version, which was released last year on other consoles. It also brings compatibility with motion controls and supports the popular amiibo figures, especially those of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Maybe in Nintendo Direct that will take place in a few hours, it will be revealed about the official release date of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for Nintendo Switch. This is something that must be revealed once and for all, although it is not entirely clear who will be responsible for its publication. It looks like Nintendo, but Bethesda Softworks could also have such a role.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Nintendo Switch is the latest version announced by Bethesda for its well-known role-playing game that has editions on multiple consoles and systems. The game still has no official release date, although it is expected to hit the console in the final months of the year.
