Bethesda’s Fallout 4 Creation Club is now live – Fallout 4 1.10 now on Steam beta

Bethesda announced the Creation Club earlier this year and today it has finally gone live for Fallout 4.

This new curated service allows players to purchase content made by Bethesda and the community and then have it appear in the game. Items can be purchased with credits (real money) and all mods/content are “compatible with the main game, official add-ons, and achievements”.

Some of the highlighted items for Fallout 4 include new armour, backpacks, pip-boy paint jobs, and of course weapons. How items are obtained varies, some are deposited into inventory or can be crafted at a workbench.

The Creation Club is a service Bethesda wants to sit alongside free mods which are readily available. How popular this will be on the PC is debatable as there is already a stack of mods similar or better available for free.

Next month the Creation Club will be introducing Skyrim content for the Skyrim Special Edition.

In other news, the Fallout 4 1.10 update has also been released in Steam beta to accommodate the Creation Club.

      I wonder how popular this will really be? I wholeheartedly agree that mod authors should be able to receive compensation for their creations, and those that don’t want compensated can continue to provide their mods for free. The question is; will there be anything behind the paywall that’s worth paying for?

        Dont fool yourself, the only reason for creation club is to milk money, not to support modders, otherwise they would have done so long time ago.
        Dont think for a second that Bethesda is going to be able to deliver quality content when they lag behind the current gaming scene good 7 – 8 years and im not just talking about the engine.

        And they know that, thats why their eyes are set on console players.
        They are already copying popular mods from Nexus and selling them for 5 bucks LOL.

        The question is, are they going to start throwing DMCA’s around for the mods that add same content…hopefully even they arent that stupid, then again i wouldnt be surprised at all.
