The recently released mods creation tool for the PC version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has apparently been met with warm reception and proven to be massively popular among the game’s community.

Gamers have thus far downloaded mods more than two million times via the Skyrim Workshop – that’s within the first three days of launching the Skyrim Creation Kit on Steam. Until today, the community has managed to put out in exceed of 2,500 mods. All of which are freely available to download.

Bethesda also boasted in Skyrim’s success across consoles, with the RPG beating out in sales both Microsoft’s and Sony’s exclusive offerings on their respective platforms.

“Worldwide revenues generated by Skyrim have placed it among the industry’s most successful titles, and demand for the title shows no signs of slowing,” said today’s press release. “Measured by revenue, Skyrim was the second best selling game of 2011, and 2012 sales remain strong, with continuing digital downloads and large shipments of units to retail. Within the first month following its release in November, Bethesda Softworks reported it had shipped over 10 million units of Skyrim across all platforms, representing approximately $650 million in retail sales, and those results have since increased substantially.”


Other than his excessively biased enthusiasm toward gaming, and technology behind the whole industry, there's a huge fondness inside that drives him nuts to pick up his keyboard and start writing for the love of it.
