Bethesda Surprised By Fallout Shelter Success On Nintendo Switch, Says Mods Aren’t In Works For Skyrim

Fallout 76 Will Stop Players Under Level 5 Being Killed in PvP

Todd Howard, director at the game's developer and publisher Bethesda, recently made comments about owners of the game on Switch, saying "Skyrim Switch has a big community that we haven't supported the way we'd like".

Howard's word highlight a more diverse game line-up, where single-player games like Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield are produced alongside Fallout Shelter and Elder Scrolls: Blades.

Creation Club, an official interface for downloading and installing mods for Bethesda games on PC and consoles, launched on Fallout 4 in autumn 2017 and on Skyrim later that year.

The group's camaraderie and Thailand's cultural context, however, would probably help them adjust after the ordeal, he said. After reaching the boys, ages 11 to 16, several of them would have to be taught how to swim and use SCUBA equipment.

In the interview with, when asked how Bethesda will stop spawn killers hanging around outside the vault, Howard responded saying, "There are several tricks we are implementing to prevent the other players from doing exactly the things you describe". Remember their Fallout 76 Service Based Model? Our Switch group did Fallout Shelter ... and that's done really well. "People, they're on other things". "Right now we're doing nothing", he said.

So there you go, if you want The Elder Scrolls VI to be on the shelves quicker stop buying Skyrim on every device you own. But, at the end of the day, the Creation Club is just something we have to deal with.

Bethesda isn't actively working on mods for the Skyrim Switch version, according to a recent interview.

Fed officials say rate hikes could slow growth

Skyrim on Switch arrived last November - Skyrim having been one of games which originally sold the Switch vision to the world (despite not actually being confirmed for Switch release back then).

Howard assures that Bethesda games will all have focused mod support going forward, but now, "we still think there's a way to go there".
