While Bethesda is churning out the multitude of patches and updates for their multi-million selling The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the award-winning developer is also working on something else – possibly downloadable content.
According to a recent teaser, new Skyrim-related news is due to drop sometime during April.
“Some things coming down the road in April for all you Rage and Skyrim fans. April is gonna have some cool news and surprises. Stay tuned.”
It’s likely that the announcements being teased pertains to Bethesda‘s downloadable content pack for the fifth Elder Scrolls installment – believed to be entitled ‘Dawnguard’. RAGE, meanwhile, hasn’t received a DLC announcement ever since its early October launch – so the game’s players could also be due to receive additional content.
History indicates that the downloadable packs due for Skyrim represent a larger chunk of content than a normal add-on pack – in the form of fully-fledged expansion packs. These, of course, were released as DLC for the title’s predecessor, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
If Todd Howard’s comments made last year are anything to go by, the latest Elder Scrolls iteration will receive meatier DLC. Skyrim‘s director had stated that he predicts that, while the title will receive fewer DLC packs than its predecessor, they’ll be more “substantial” in breadth.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim released back in November 2011 – so an announcement relating to downloadable content for the action role-playing game certainly seems overdue. That said, assuming DLC is announced, PlayStation 3 players will not be able to get their hands on any possible expansion pack straightaway. Bethesda’s deal with Microsoft ensures Skyrim‘s first two DLC packs release exclusively on the Xbox 360 for a full month.
Ranters, are you excited by what Bethesda has in store for Skyrim players? What do you hope for in the, potential, upcoming DLC?
