The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Creation Kit in January 2012

The official development tools for the game to be given to the players
Bethesda Softworks today unveiled that the Creation Kit for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be available in January 2012 - PC players will be able to download for free the same development tools used at Bethesda Game Studios to create the game. Moreover, Steam Workshop will be integrated into the Creation Kit - this means you can submit, browse, rate, and download mods for Skyrim through Steam. You'll still be able to upload/share/access Skyrim mods on fan-created mod sites. In related news, a new patch will be launched next week - it will fix issues like magic resistance not calculating properly and the rare, amazing backwards flying dragon.
