Skyrim Will Be Taking The Expansion Pack Route In The Form Of DLC «

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a huge game. So massive that I really hope that Bethesda makes sure that future DLC content will just have the same amount of scope. That’s exactly what they’ll be doing.

Speaking to Kotaku, Todd Howard stated that the next future DLC content for Skyrim will feel more like expansion packs:

“”For Fallout 3 we did five DLCs…That was a very aggressive path for us. Our plan now is to take more time, to have more meat on them [for Skyrim]. They’ll feel closer to an expansion pack….With Fallout 3, it was, ‘Ten dollars is the sweet spot for us and we know we want to put out five of them. And we had overlapping teams. We were coming off Fallout 3 and right back in…we just think we can do better content if we approach it a different way.””

That said, they Todd Howard explains that they’ll be putting out a lot of the smaller content out for free.

“Because that gap is going to be bigger, we want to put litle things out for free in between. We’ve already done that for PC with the high-res pack. We’re trying to figure out what those things are.”

So does that mean that we won’t have to pay for Horse Armor? Either way, I wouldn’t want to have their approach either way. I’m itching for some new content in Skyrim, and wish it comes a bit sooner than I expect it.
