Bethesda Confirms Skyrim Mod Tools

We’ve all become accustomed to Bethesda releasing mod tools for their titles. However, with the decline in moddable titles over the past few years, we were keeping our fingers crossed.

As it turns out, there was no need to worry. Bethesda has already mentioned a creation kit for Skyrim, and now it’s been confirmed to be similar to the tools released with Morrowind and Oblivion. Over on the Bethesda forums, a Community Manager has posted the following statement:

We’ve always been impressed with what the community has done with our tools. Like the Elder Scrolls Construction Set for Morrowind and Oblivion, we plan to release Creation Kit so you guys can mod Skyrim.

Modders, rejoice! You haven’t been abandoned by Bethesda at all. If you make something really cool, you should really create an account and host your files here at GameFront. You could also submit them to our extensive Elder Scrolls network site.
