The last Elder Scrolls offering we gobbled up provided a staggered sum of DLC, from new entire landmasses to, ahem, decorative equestrian attire. Nowadays, it's not uncommon for a game to receive two, three DLC packs, even when they're already as big as an Elder Scrolls game. Naturally, Bethesda has big plans in store for Skyrim's post-release days, with a focus on quality over quantity.
"We would like to do DLC; we don't have any specific plans yet, but they've been really successful and we like making them," explains Bethesda's Todd Howard in an interview with AusGamers. Bethesda is no stranger to DLC; Oblivion received no less than three DLC packs, including the staggeringly big Shivering Isles add-on, and Fallout 3 ended up five massive add-ons by the time the team moved on to Skyrim.
But what can we expect from post-release Skyrim content? A return to Cryodill? Dragon-riding? More horse-armor? Howard isn't willing to give up any details yet, but he does reveal the team is more focused on bigger updates rather than a surplus of smaller offerings. "So right now I can say that we'd like to do less DLC but bigger ones - you know, more substantial".
