Bethesda's Creation Club program has entered its beta phase on PC, giving us a glimpse of what we can expect once it hits the PlayStation 4 versions of Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. For those out of the loop, the Creation Club was revealed during the publisher's E3 2017 press conference, and it basically allows players to purchase extra pieces of content for each game -- content that's authored by fellow users.
Unsurprisingly, the whole concept didn't go down too well with the community, and the Creation Club was quickly called out as a way for Bethesda to wheel out a "paid mods" program. The difference here, though, is that the stuff that you buy and download from the Creation Club won't disable Trophies or interfere with your save data. In other words, you can kind of think of them as "official" mods that Bethesda has approved and you have to pay for.
Anyway, thanks to the aforementioned PC beta -- currently only available for Fallout 4 -- we can take a look at what kind of content is coming. For the most part, we're looking at small-scale stuff right now. New weapons, armour sets, outfits, paint jobs -- that sort of thing. It'll be interesting to see how well it ends up being supported, and whether people actually take to it or not.
