Full Skyrim Developer Tools Releasing Next Month

Posted on December 2, 2011 AT 06:51am

THE BUZZ: Bethesda has announced that it will be releasing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim full development tools to the public, in January 2012.

“Beginning in January, PC players will be able to download for free the same development tools we used at Bethesda Game Studios to create Skyrim,” the publisher said. Also a new wiki will be created housing a number of tutorials and videos explaining how to use the tools to help beginners: ”In tandem with the Creation Kit’s release, we will roll out a new Wiki and videos to help you get started.” The tools will be titled the Creation Kit and will be fully compatible with the Steam Workshop so users can publish their work for players to download completely free of charge.

EGM’s TAKE: The modding scene for Skyrim is already in full swing, and the release of these tools can only improve the quality and the number of mods available.
