The Skyrim Creation Kit Launches Tomorrow!
Bethesda’s VP of Marketing, Pete Hines, let slip in a recent tweet that the Skyrim Creation Kit is slated to be released tomorrow, February 7th. He also intimated that some manner of surprise would be released along with the Kit, fueling a bit of speculation as to whether it might be an additional quest for the already massive and expansive game.
Then again, it could also be a high-resolution texture pack for Skyrim, something a Bethesda forum member discovered a reference to in some content description records for the game from Steam.
The Skyrim Creation Kit has already won some high praise in comments here at Aiera, with Kevin Fishburne noting that its ability to have mods created with it uploaded, indexed, and auto-patched through Bethesda’s servers is a hugely professional move by Bethesda Softworks, and one hell of a means of showing encouragement to would-be Skyrim modders.
