Bethesda Gives Us A Look At Skyrim Workshop And Creation Kit

One of the reasons that Bethesda is among my favorite game developers is their commitment to bringing us tools for modding. Here’s a company that doesn’t just want to make awesome games for you to play, they also want to give you the ability to change the game, and make it your own.

The company has released a teaser video of their upcoming Creation Kit for Skyrim. It looks as though it will be much the same as we’ve seen in previous titles, with a few updates. The biggest new feature is called Skyrim Workshop, and is an area within Steam that will allow you to upload your mods, so that they can be easily discovered by people, rated, and downloaded. It will even ensure that the latest version of your mods are downloaded each time you want to play the game.

What’s really nice is that they aren’t forcing you to use Skyrim Workshop for your mods. They specifically mentioned that sites like Skyrim Nexus will have no problems offering mods like they have in the past. The Creation Kit will not break existing mods. Now the only question is when they are going to actually release this.
