Not only will you soon have access to an impressive supply of created mods, but they'll look damn good too.

Today Bethesda has released the long awaited Creation Kit for 'Skyrim,' which means even more impressive user-created mods are on the way. Most players won't use the kit itself, but part of the appeal of the PC version is the amazing amount of user-created content that's on the way.

If you've been hoping for a better looking 'Skyrim,' you'll be happy to see the release of new high-resolution textures from Bethesda, downloadable as free DLC from Steam. The new textures take the game up a notch, but there are a few bugs in there, like the way some shadows end up or simply resolutions that did not get updated.

To celebrate the release of these two big improvements to the game, Bethesda is giving up 'Skyrim' at a 33% discount - just $49.99.
