Don’t get your hopes up for mods in Skyrim Switch

So, Bethesda kinda went for the jugular there with the Creation Club, which basically allows them to profit off of mods. "People, they're on other things".

But if you're hoping to use mods to let bears play lutes, or turn dragons into Thomas the Tank Engine on your Switch anytime soon, Bethesda chief Todd Howard has some bad news for you.

When he was asked what he was doing to rectify it he said "Right now we're doing nothing. We would love to see it happen but it's not something we're actively doing", said Todd. Our Switch group did Fallout Shelter ... and that's done really well. "I'm surprised at how well it's done". "It definitely becomes this long-tail life of our games but if you look at the raw numbers it's still not as great as we'd like - the people who are consuming the mods".

Mod support has been - and will be - a fundamental part of Bethesda Game Studios games going forward.

England vs. Sweden final score, recap
Mikael Lustig's absence was notable in the Swedish defence that, for the first time at this World Cup, had troubles in the air. England scored once in either half to beat the Swedes 2-0 in Samara and reach their first World Cup semifinal since 1990.

The Creation Club feature, which was first introduced into Fallout 4 before making its way to Skyrim, essentially allows players to access mods for the game on consoles, as well as on PC.

Valve revealed its most played titles throughout 2018 so far, led by multiplayer games such as Dota 2, GTA V and PUBG which all managed to pull over 100,000 simultaneous players.

Although the support is such that it synchronizes every player and adds them to the server, the future lies in gamers having their own worlds where they can choose mods as per their moods.

The idea of slaying dragons in Skyrim on the bus - or on the loo - used to be nothing more than a pipe dream - but last November, Bethesda Game Studios pulled it off and released the fifth Elder Scrolls game on Nintendo Switch.
