Bethesda announced today that more than 2 million mods for its hit RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
have been downloaded less than a week after the game's Creation Kit tools launched.
The company released the Skyrim
Creation Kit last week, allowing gamers to create custom content for the game and upload it to the Skyrim
Workshop via the Steam digital distribution client.
It had previously said
that the tools would be made available in January, but this date slipped by a month.
More than 2,500 free mods have been uploaded to the service by users, with over 2 million downloads recorded since the launch on February 7.
As part of the announcement, Bethesda also revealed that data from Steam shows that the average number of hours that a PC gamer plays Skyrim
for exceeds 75 hours.
