Betheda’s Todd Howard has revealed that DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be bigger than the sort which was released for the previous game Oblivion, but they won’t be made available as often.
When asked by Wired what kind of DLC players can expect for Skyrim, Howard revealed the following:
“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.”
“Very quick DLC might sell well, but that’s not our priority. The goal overall is not necessarily to put out more content, but to make the game better.”
So less horse armour and more substantial expansions like Oblivion’s excellent Shivering Isles. Now that’s a formula we can get behind!
Skyrim will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this Friday, so expect plenty more coverage to come.
