The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, the remastered version of the acclaimed RPG from Bethesda, has received a major update that supports the upcoming Steam Deck, a new Creations menu, and more. Aside from that, the update also introduces platform-exclusive bug fixes and other improvements.
The latest update adds the Bethesda Game Studios Creations menu to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special edition, which lets players download Creations content directly. Creations combines Skyrim’s existing Mods, Creation Club items and all-new Creations under a single Creations menu available for players to browse who install the latest update.
Creators can create their own Creations for players to enjoy or even apply to the Bethesda Game Studios Verified Creator Program to set prices for their Creations. Some new creations that have been launched include East Empire Expansion, Katja the Thief, Winterfrost, Arqebus, and more.
