Those of you anxiously awaiting more robust Skyrim mods have only a month or so left, as Bethesda announced on their blog that the game’s modding tools, the Creation Kit, will be released in January. Along with the Creation Kit, they’ll be releasing videos and a wiki to aid you in your use of the tools.
Of course, all of this Creation Kit talk is well and good if you’re a modder, but what if you’re a mod consumer? Well when the mod tools are released, Skyrim will be getting access to the Steam Workshop. Yes, the same Steam Workshop that we currently use for Team Fortress 2. That means you’ll be able to easily browse, rate and flag mods for download from any device with a web browser. Once you launch the game, anything you queued up will be downloaded.
Of course, if you’re not into the Steam interface or looking for a… seedier variety of mod, you’ll still be able to use third party mod sites, such as Skyrim Nexus. Just don’t overdo it on the furry mods, okay?
