In a Steam Community update, Bethesda has announced that the Creation Club for Fallout 4 is now available. The Creation Club arrives as a part of Fallout 4’s patch 1.10, which is now live on all platforms. The announcement further clarifies that this launch of Creation Club is the “PC beta” rather than the complete deal, so expect some issues as the new content system settles in.

The Creation Club was announced at E3 2017 in June as a new initiative across both Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition to allow players to purchase and download user-created mods. Back then, Bethesda was keen to stress that the Creation Club was not a new “paid mods” initiative, as per the aborted attempt through Steam with Skyrim’s initial release.

The publisher stated:

“Mods will remain a free and open system where anyone can create and share what they’d like. Also, we won’t allow any existing mods to be retrofitted into Creation Club, it must all be original content.
Most of the Creation Club content is created internally, some with external partners who have worked on our games, and some by external Creators. All the content is approved, curated, and taken through the full internal dev cycle; including localization, polishing, and testing. This also guarantees that all content works together.

We’ve looked at many ways to do “paid mods”, and the problems outweigh the benefits. We’ve encountered many of those issues before. But, there’s a constant demand from our fans to add more official high quality content to our games, and while we are able to create a lot of it, we think many in our community have the talent to work directly with us and create some amazing new things.”

Today’s update further reiterates the statement, with Bethesda saying:

“Featuring new items, abilities and gameplay created by Bethesda Games Studios and outside development partners – including the best community creators – Creation Club content is fully curated and compatible with the main game, official add-ons, and achievements. Currently available for Fallout 4, Creation Club will be coming to Skyrim Special Edition next month. All Creation Club content works on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. And of course, Mods will remain a free and open system where anyone can create and share what they’d like.”

With the launch of the PC beta, Bethesda has added 100 credits to every player’s account, which can be spent on mods. The selection is currently rather slim, but Bethesda says more content will be coming in the next few months. Here’s what’s available – a selection of items along with Bethesda poking fun at its own first Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion DLC and including a new Horse Armour mod:

The engine does look very impressive. What is more impressive is that this is XBox 360 quality. If they can get that kinda quality out of the 360, I can't wait to see what can be done on a computer with mods!
