  • Bethesda Introduces Paid Mods that Aren't Paid Mods

    During their E3 conference, Bethesda announced the "Creation Club" for Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It's a way for players to "pay" for mods without "paying" for mods. But the mod makers make money? Yes, but they aren't "paid" mods.

    My head hurts.
    Creation Club is a collection of all-new content for both Fallout 4 and Skyrim. It features new items, abilities, and gameplay created by Bethesda Games Studios and outside development partners including the best community creators. Creation Club content is fully curated and compatible with the main game and official add-ons.

    What types of content will be included in Creation Club?What platforms will Creation Club support?
    Creation Club will be available in Summer 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition.

    How do I get Creation Club content?
    Creation Club is available via in-game digital marketplaces in both Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition and purchased with Credits. Credits are available for purchase on PSN, Xbox Live, and Steam. Your Credits are transferable and can be used in both games on the same platform.

    Can I become a Creator?
    Creators are required to submit documentation pitches which go through an approval process. All content must be new and original. Once a concept is approved, a development schedule with Alpha, Beta and Release milestones is created. Creations go through our full development pipeline, which Creators participate in. Bethesda Game Studios developers work with Creators to iterate and polish their work along with full QA cycles. The content is fully localized, as well. This ensures compatibility with the original game, official add-ons and achievements.

    Are Creators Paid For Their Work?
    Yes. Just like our own game developers, Creators are paid for their work and start receiving payment as soon as their proposal is accepted and through development milestones.

    Is Creation Club paid mods?

    So mods will remain free but you can still "pay" for community created mods but you aren't "paying" for them. Well, that cleared everything up.
