Skyrim Creation Kit is Live
Bethesda has released the much awaited PC mod tools for their smash hit, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. For those unfamiliar with the culture of Bethesda's PC fanbase, this is something just a few steps shy of the Second Coming of Tiber Septim.
In addition to the release of the Skyrim Creation Kit, Bethesda has also released episode #1 of their Creation Kit Tutorial Series, this time around focusing on an overall introduction to the kit. By browsing the popular mod site Skyrim Nexus, one will notice that the modding community has already developed a plethora of user-generated content already without official modding tools. In the coming months, it will be exciting to see how these new resources will spark modders' imaginations in new and unique ways. If the series' previous installment, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, is any indication, there will be a virtually endless stream of new equipment, spells and gameplay overhauls being developed for gamers, by gamers.. Additionally, the Steam Workshop has launched alongside Bethesda's toolset. This new resource offers modders a place on Steam to share their work with the rest of the gaming community.
The Skyrim Creation Kit is only available for PC can be downloaded through Steam.
