Bethesda Studios’ The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most hyped and played games in recent times. Players have created their own meme-verse with the arrow-to-the-knee jokes and other paraphernalia and the game has been a huge success. Fans of the games have been clamoring for a Creation Kit – a set of tools released by the developer to aid and assist in making mods. Bethesda has released a statement along with the release notes for v1.4 regarding the Creation Kit.
It seems that the Creation Kit will work with the Steam Workshop – a place where community-made items are voted on by players themselves which may then be added in-game. A Steam Workshop for Team Fortress 2 exists and has seen a bunch of items go from just a concept on paper to an actual in-game item. The creators of the items are also rewarded in cash by Valve. In this case, the creators will be rewarded by Bethesda, probably.
The Creation Kit will allow modders to make complete game transformations such as those we have seen with Neverwinter Nights and the previous The Elder Scrolls games such as Oblivion. It is quite amazing that Bethesda is genuinely interested in enhancing the gameplay by giving players the power, for free.
More news will be here as it happens.
