Skyrim DLC Won’t Arrive Soon, Could Overhaul Game
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim hasn’t even launched yet, but Bethesda’s Todd Howard has already discussed tentative DLC plans for the fantasy epic.
The emphasis will be on less, but bigger content packs Howard confirmed.
“Very quick DLC might sell well, but that’s not our priority,” he told Wired. “We’re not going to be doing a lot of it. Our high-level thinking is that there’ll be not as many [pieces of DLC], but they’ll be bigger and more substantial,” he said. “The goal overall is not necessarily to put out more content, but to make the game better.”
We’re guessing that’s the nail in the coffin of more horse armour then.
Howard added that future DLC wouldn’t be considered until the development team has had a vacation – future expansions could also tweak core game mechanics too, he confirmed.
Skyrim launches for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on 11 November – DLC is set to launch for the Xbox 360 first.
