For the uninitiated, Bethesda's Creation Kits are a series of tools that modders can use to create their own custom mods for the game. One of the big selling points for the Skyrim: Special Edition is that Bethesda will be incorporating official mod support into all versions of the game. Previously, mods had been only been officially supported in the PC versions of their games, but after the release of Bethesda's previous title, Fallout 4, mod support came to consoles as well
Mods have always been a major part of Bethesda's games on PC, so seeing that official mod support come to the console market makes for a good step forward. It will be interesting to see if any other publishers will follow in Bethesda's footsteps and offer mod support for their console titles.
