Although the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is not set to release until 11/11/11, a date that was likely chosen for its triple 11 rather for than the fact that it falls on Veteran’s Day, Bethesda game director Todd Howard has already began talking DLC in an interview with AusGamers. Although Howard did not get into the specific DLC content that is planned for the upcoming Elder Scrolls title, he did mention that the Bethesda team plans on releasing less DLC, and will instead feature more content in each individual pack.
In the interview, Howard stated the following: “So right now I can say that we’d like to do less DLC but bigger ones – you know, more substantial. The Fallout 3 pace that we did was very chaotic. We did a lot of them – we had two overlapping groups – and we don’t know what we’re going to make yet, but we’d like them to be closer to an expansion pack feel,”.
Currently, there are no released plans for the DLC, but Howard has stated that the yet-to-be revealed DLC will be available after the main quest is completed, a common complaint about Bethesda’s critically acclaimed Fallout 3. In my book, Skyrim is one of the most anticipated titles of the rest of the year, and come November, I know what I’ll be thankful for (the veterans, of course, not an awesome game set in a quirky fantasy universe).
