Bethesda announces paid-mod support with Creation Club
Paid mods are making a comeback.
Bethesda's taking a second crack at paid mods with its new Creation Club program, announced today at the Bethesda E3 press conference. Creation Club will offer new content, including weapons, clothing, and even entirely new gameplay features for games like Skyrim and Fallout 4, both on PC and on consoles.
Unlike Bethesda's first attempt at allowing mod creators to charge for their creations, Creation Club will be fully curated by the studio, meaning there's less likely to be the kind of cash-in content that many were worried originally about.
Bethesda also announced that there have been over 300 million mod downloads on console since support began.
