In brief: Yes

It will, but not without any work on your end.
Creatine can help facilitate greater muscle building but only when the two most important aspects of muscle building are also present: workouts that stress the muscles, and protein consumption. Aim for higher weight and lower reps on bigger muscle groups (deadlifts, squats, bench press. Consume 30-50 grams of protein split before and after workout.
