Skyrim Workshop Launches with Over 2 Million Mods Downloaded

A week ago, the Skyrim Creation Kit launched, and since then, the Skyrim Workshop has seen over two million downloads. More than 2,500 mods have been published by the gaming community, all of which are available for free.

According to Steam data, the average number of hours that a gamer plays Skyrim exceeds 75, which is incredible given how few hours casual gamers put into a title. The PC version of Skyrim in North America outsold all other PC games by a factor of over three to one in the month of its release, and Skyrim is the fastest-selling title in Steam’s history.

The Elder Scrolls series has been a tent pole in the modding community, so while it doesn’t surprise me to see the Creation Kit being so well-received, it does please me. Who knows what incredible mods we’ll be seeing six months from now?

I think think that it is amazing that this game gets so much play time and attention for a single player game.

Could this be and indication that people are getting seriously tired of the redundant copy-paste cheating ass multi-player online games and just want to chill out by themselves? Or is this just where all the WOW s happened to end up?
