Posted on February 14, 2012, CJ Miozzi 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?
