Bethesda missed its January launch window for the Elder Scrolls V modding tools, but says free add-on's Steam debut isn't far off.


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Bethesda had no problem meeting the original release date it announced for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but the game's PC Creation Kit is proving a little more troublesome for the developer. After missing the modding toolkit's scheduled January release window, Bethesda today reiterated that the utility "will be available soon as a free download via Steam."

The Creation Kit will give players access to the developers' tools.

Designed to support the modding community, the Creation Kit gives gamers access to Bethesda's own development tools to make new Skyrim content. Likewise, Valve's Steam Workshop tool for Skyrim will aid PC gamers in finding and installing community-created game mods.

While the PC Creation Kit will no doubt spur the mod community for Skyrim, the game's do-it-yourself fan base isn't waiting for Bethesda's help in tinkering with the game. Check out the video below for a look at some of the game's earliest fan-made modifications and where to get them.
