Todd Howard announced in a recent interview that the The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Creation Kit (Mod Tools) for the PC version of the game would be released near the retail release of the game. In the recent interview, Howard claimed that their is a “big premium on our editor” and that it’s “going to come out again with Skyrim”. “When it comes to content creation, we just have so much of it that we have to put a lot of development time into the tools, because the game is so big.” -That’s what she said.
Howard hopes that the Creation Kit will be available on launch day, but he’s not making any promises, but he did narrow it down to “very close”, so that’s a plus. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim releases worldwide on November 11th for the PC, PS3, and Xbox.
