Asked about mod support in an interview with Famitsu, game director Todd Howard said the studio intends to support modding “in a big way” – as it has done with past games including The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4.
“You will be able to do almost anything, just like in previous works”, Howard said (via Google Translate). “Mod support will be available next year, but we love it too, so we’ll do it in a big way.”
Over six million people played the game by the end of its first official day of release, including more than one million concurrent players, according to the platform holder.
