If you’re playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you can do some crazy things with custom fan mods. However, this functionality isn’t available in the Switch version. And unfortunately, that won’t be changing anytime soon.

Eurogamer asked Bethesda Game Studios’ Todd Howard about the possibility of adding in mod support for Skyrim on Switch. Despite “a big community” on the platform that has requested the feature, Howard indicated that there are no current plans.

With some major help from Panic Button, Wolfenstein II released on Switch yesterday. Digital Foundry has taken a closer look at the port from a technical perspective.

Arguably what’s most important is the content. No sacrifices were made here, as every level from other versions of Wolfenstein II are present on Switch. All sequences are presented in full. Some tricks were implemented though, like placing a wall in a certain area of the game – likely to reduce load when looking back at the stage.

Before Switch was announced, no one could have predicted how much support Bethesda would be giving the system. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim got things started late last year, followed by Doom. The Wolfenstein II also just launched on the platform today. Fallout Shelter was released earlier in the month, and The Elder Scrolls: Legends is planned for later this year.

Gamereactor interviewed Bethesda’s Todd Howard at Gamelab this week. When asked if there’s interest in bringing over a mainline Fallout, he said:

With Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus arriving on Switch today, Bethesda has issued a new launch trailer. Have a look at the video below.

After it was announced for the system several months ago, Wolfenstein II arrives on Switch tomorrow. Find a video below comparing it to the PC version, along with the first 19 minutes.

Wolfenstein II launches on Switch this week. But what about Wolfenstein: The New Order, the last game main in the series? Or how about The New Order’s standalone prequel Wolfenstein: The Old Blood?

Unfortunately, at least for the time being, there aren’t any plans for either of these titles on Switch. Adam Creighton, studio head at developer Panic Button, told GameSpot in a new interview:

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is one of the new games Bethesda announced at E3 last week. The company didn’t share many details in the end though, and technically hasn’t confirmed platforms. But GameStop did end up taking pre-orders for a Switch version following the reveal.

Fast forward a few days later, and that listing is nowhere to be seen. It’s not a good sign, but no confirmations have been made either way.

The one concerning thing we’ll mention here is that we noticed how Bethesda’s UK department has provided tentative boxarts for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Switch did not have a similar packaging image. Again, it’s still not a confirmation, but it’s looking a bit less likely that Wolfenstein: Youngblood will end up on Switch. We’ll keep an eye on things either way.

Those who are looking to get a head start on the digital version of Wolfenstein II can do so with the new pre-load option. The game can be purchased and downloaded in advance. Then on launch day, you’ll only need to connect online once to begin playing.

Wolfenstein II launches June 29. The digital version takes up 21.8GB of space.
