Bethesda at their E3 2017 briefing announced Creation Club for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4. According to Bethesda, Creation Club is a collection of new game content for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4 including new weapons, new armor, new outfits and accessories, new crafting and house features, even new gameplay enhancements.
Don’t we already have mods for all these things for Skyrim and Fallout 4? Is Bethesda trying paid mods again with a different coat of paint called “Creation Club”? It looks like this only. The content that will be available in the Creation Club is made by Bethesda Game Studios and outside developers including the very best community creators. How the hell this Creation Club is different from Paid Mods? Bethesda addressed this issue on their official website. Read the full statement below:
Mods will remain a free and open system where anyone can create and share what they’d like. Also, we won’t allow any existing mods to be retrofitted into Creation Club, it must all be original content. Most of the Creation Club content is created internally, some with external partners who have worked on our games, and some by external Creators.
All the content is approved, curated, and taken through the full internal dev cycle; including localization, polishing, and testing. This also guarantees that all content works together. We’ve looked at many ways to do “paid mods”, and the problems outweigh the benefits. We’ve encountered many of those issues before. But, there’s a constant demand from our fans to add more official high-quality content to our games, and while we are able to create a lot of it, we think many in our community have the talent to work directly with us and create some amazing new things.
