Skyrim Remastered Details On New Creation Kit, Ton of Effort Going Into Remastering
Plus, no new batch of DLC planned to coincide with the launch of the remaster.
The Elder Scrolls Skyrim: Special Edition has been one of the most requested remasters ever, so it was great to see Bethesda finally announce it at E3 this year. The remaster looks great, and like one of the most thorough and extensive ones that we have seen yet- which is something Bethesda reiterated on Twitter recently, when Pete Hines pointed out that a ton of effort goes into remastering a game of this size and scope so thoroughly for new hardware.
Hines also confirmed something that we have already known for a while- that while Skyrim Special Edition will launch with all the DLC that was already released for the original Skyrim, there will be no new DLC for the game. Which is fine, because the inclusion of mods, now available to console players for the first time, should hopefully keep a steady stream of new content coming.
As for those mods, Hines has confirmed that there is discussion ongoing to make the Creation Kit for the new game available before the game itself launches, but that nothing has been decided yet. The Elder Scrolls Skyrim: Special Edition will launch on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this October.
