Skyrim revives paid content with Creations hub, could lead to paid user content in Starfield


Yes, I know it’s 2023 in the year our Lord and I’m still writing about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – the game actually got a new update that revives its controversial paid content hub.

Bethesda rolled out a new update for the long-running fantasy RPG that replaces the “Creation Club” with a new “Creations” store page, which combines both paid content and free content. It’s worth noting this also includes paid and free user-made content, and mods.

The new update also adds a host of PC-focused features and improvements, most notably ultrawide support (finally, it’s only taken a decade), new console functionality (in-game console commands), and even Steam Deck support.

Unfortunately, with any of these big updates to a heavily modded game like Skyrim, a number of popular mods have already been broken with the latest build, like the SKSE script extension. Bethesda is already working with modders to get these updated, though.

An interesting tidbit from this new update and the new Creations store is that Bethesda calls the new store an “evolution” of the Creation Club. With mods coming to Starfield next year, it’s likely Bethesda will use this model for their latest flagship RPG and its mods.

Skyrim: Anniversary Edition and its new anniversary update has been available since November 11th 2021 for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5. The original game has been available on Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One.
