One week since the launch of the Skyrim Workshop, Bethesda has announced over 2 million downloads and 2,500 mods published.
Bethesda announced today that within a week since releasing the creation kit for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, players have downloaded more than two million mods through the Steam-powered Workshop. In addition, the fans have published 2,500 free mods of their own.
The workshop launched with the adorable (and anachronistic) Space Sphere from Portal 2 as its first mod. Some of the top-rated fan mods at the Steam Workshop include new spells, dragon bone weapons, and better blood textures.
Better blood textures for Skyrim
Before the launch of the Workshop, the community had already been creating and releasing mods through sites like Skyrim Nexus. Collating the most popular mods into Steam definitely made populating the Workshop much easier for Bethesda.
