Now you can easily discover, rate, and download Skyrim mods directly through Steam. The Steam Workshop makes it easy to browse the most popular, newest or highest-rated mods of all time, as well as searching for specific content via tags such as â€œArmorâ€�, â€œQuestsâ€�, â€œDungeonsâ€�, and more. You can even see what your friends have added to their favorites. Once youâ€™ve found something awesome, click the â€œSubscribeâ€� button. The next time you play Skyrim, the launcher will automatically install the latest version of any subscribed mods and configure Skyrim to run them.
Mod-makers also enjoy a streamlined process for uploading mods directly to Steam. The difficult part, of course, is creating your mod. To get started modding, install the Creation Kit â€“ free through Steam to all Skyrim owners â€“ from the Tools section of your Steam Library. The Creation Kit is a powerful and sometimes daunting tool, but the community wiki at www.CreationKit.com is a resource for modders of all skill levels, even the total beginner.
In addition to releasing the Creation Kit and Skyrim Workshop, today Bethesda has release the Skyrim High-Resolution Texture Pack. Experience The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as youâ€™ve never seen it before with all new high-resolution materials throughout Skyrim.
If you need even more incentive to pick up your very own copy of Skyrim, you can save 33% when you buy before Thursday at 10AM Pacific Time.
