Fallout 4 Creation Club Now In Beta On PC; To Launch Today On Consoles
Starting today, those still enjoying Fallout 4 will be able to enjoy some brand new content on all formats, thanks to the launch of the Creation Club.
The Creation Club, which is also getting launched for Skyrim, allows players access to new content created by Bethesda as well as other development partners
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.”
Bethesda further elaborated on the Creation Club, noting that it’s not an implementation of the rumored paid mods.
Mods will remain a free and open system where anyone can create and share what they’d like. Also, we won’t allow any existing mods to be retrofitted into Creation Club, it must all be original content. Most of the Creation Club content is created internally, some with external partners who have worked on our games, and some by external Creators. All the content is approved, curated, and taken through the full internal dev cycle; including localization, polishing, and testing.
This also guarantees that all content works together. We’ve looked at many ways to do “paid mods”, and the problems outweigh the benefits. We’ve encountered many of those issues before. But, there’s a constant demand from our fans to add more official high quality content to our games, and while we are able to create a lot of it, we think many in our community have the talent to work directly with us and create some amazing new things.”
Fallout 4 is now out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
