Expect official modding tools for Starfield next year

Bethesda plans to release Creation Kit tools for Starfield in 2024 – Todd Howard confirms

Like all modern Bethesda games, Starfield has a vibrant modding scene, and in an interview of Famitsu, Bethesda Game Studios’ Todd Howard has confirmed that the company plans to deliver official modding support for the game in 2024 with the release of their Creation Kit modding tools.

While gamers can already mod the PC version of Starfield, the addition of official modding tools will allow gamers to create more in-depth mods for Starfield, allowing them to add new quests, environments, characters, dialogue, weapons, and more to the game. With these tools, Starfield will have the same level of mod support as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Fallout 4, both of which have an overwhelming amount of modded content explore.

Below is what Todd Howard said to Famitsu about Starfield’s planned mod support. Note that this quote has been translated from Japanese to English.

Famitsu – Will it be possible to add new creators for planets using mods

Todd Howard – With mods you will be able to do almost anything, just like our prior games. Mod support will be available next year, and you will be able to mod Starfield in a big way because we love it too.

With official mod support, gamers on Xbox should also be able to mod Starfield, as Bethesda has offered a level of mod support to both Fallout 4 and Skyrim players on console in the past. Console mod support will not be as extensive as PC mod support, but it will allow console gamers to enjoy additional content from the Starfield modding scene.

In other Starfield modding news, the legendary modder Halk Hogan has started work on an “HD Reworked Project” mod the game, enhancing the game’s visuals with enhanced textures.
