Bethesda has announced Creation Club for Fallout 4 and Skyrim: Special Edition. The digital hub can be used by content creators to sell content online.
According to a recent press release, Creation Club will feature new items, abilities, and gameplay created by Bethesda itself and outside development partners, including the best community creators.
With the new program Bethesda hopes to financially reward content creators for their work. Just like game developers, creators are paid for their work and start receiving payment as soon as their proposal is accepted and through development milestones.
Even though content creators will be able to sell their content on Creation Club, Bethesda states that the new program is not equal to selling game modifications because it won't allow any existing mods to be retrofitted into Creation Club and because all user-generated content must be completely original.
According to the company there is a "constant demand" from fans to add more official high quality content to its games. Bethesda hopes to fill that void with the introduction of Creation Club.
Creator Club will launch in the summer of 2017 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. At launch it will support Fallout 4 and Skyrim: Special Edition.
