Sometime next week, Bethesda will introduce an incremental update to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to remedy some of the issues the recent patch made such as, resistances not functioning properly and dragons flying backwards.
Bethesda promises to be more careful with future patches and that after the holidays they will continue releasing full title updates as well as, incremental gameplay updates to fix whatever breaks.
Expect the PC version to get patch faster because they control the roll out where as, on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 patches need to go through a certification process.
Along with the updates and tweaks, they are actively working to release the Creation Kit, mod tools for the game, which they say will release January.
Along with the Creation Kit, they plan to release a wiki and videos to help players learn their way around the software and get them working on the mods they want to create. In addition, Steam Workshop will be integrated in the Creation Kit as well.
“The Creation Kit will bundle your mod and upload it to the Workshop, where everyone can browse, rate, and flag mods for download. You’ll be able to do this from any web device, including your smartphone. Like a live Netflix queue, when you fire up Skyrim, mods you flagged will be automatically downloaded and installed.”
