A Bethesda community representative has just confirmed that the creation engine for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be released to the public. "We've always been impressed with what the community has done with our tools. Like the Elder Scrolls Construction Set for Morrowind and Oblivion, we plan to release the Creation Kit so you guys can mod Skyrim," stated the rep on the official forums.
PC gamers can now prepare for the inevitable release of several hundred Nude Nords mods, along with neat weird projects (Ice Climbers mod, anyone?) and amazing full world conversions by the most talented project designers. Skyrim's release will be on November 11, but the creation engine may not come out at the same time as the game.
