With this official add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, journey off the coast of Morrowind, to the island of Solstheim. Encounter new towns, dungeons, and quests, as you traverse the ash wastes and glacial valleys of this new land. Become more powerful with shouts that bend the will of your enemies and even tame dragons. Your fate, and the fate of Solstheim, hangs in the balance as you face off against your deadliest adversary the first Dragonborn.
With this official add-on to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you can purchase land and build your own home from the ground up - from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more. Use all-new tools like the drafting table and carpenters workbench to transform quarried stone, clay, and sawn logs into structures and furnishings. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children.
Now you can easily discover, rate, and download Skyrim mods directly through Steam. The Steam Workshop makes it easy to browse the most popular, newest or highest-rated mods of all time, as well as searching for specific content via tags such as Armor, Quests, Dungeons, and more. You can even see what your friends have added to their favorites. Once youve found something awesome, click the Subscribe button. The next time you play Skyrim, the launcher will automatically install the latest version of any subscribed mods and configure Skyrim to run them.
Mod-makers also enjoy a streamlined process for uploading mods directly to Steam. The difficult part, of course, is creating your mod. To get started modding, install the Creation Kit free through Steam to all Skyrim owners from the Tools section of your Steam Library. The Creation Kit is a powerful and sometimes daunting tool, but the community wiki at www.CreationKit.com is a resource for modders of all skill levels, even the total beginner.
In addition to releasing the Creation Kit and Skyrim Workshop, today Bethesda has release the Skyrim High-Resolution Texture Pack. Experience The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as youve never seen it before with all new high-resolution materials throughout Skyrim.
If you need even more incentive to pick up your very own copy of Skyrim, you can save 33% when you buy before Thursday at 10AM Pacific Time.
