Todd Howard, game director for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, has said they while there's no definitive plan for DLC right now they do agree its direction.
They want future downloadable adventures to have an "expansion pack feel." Previous Bethesda DLC has been "really successful" - 'less is more'.
Also confirmed? Players can keep on truckin' after the main quest in Skyrim is completed. Bethesda noticed quite a backlash when Fallout 3 ended and even corrected the 'mistake' with a piece of downloadable content.
"No, you’ll definitely be able to.. when you finish the main quest you can just keep playing," assured Todd Howard. Skyrim uses an all-new engine and so far is looking an incredibly vibrant and dynamic world to go exploring in.
"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. So right now I can say that we’d like to do less DLC but bigger ones -- you know, more substantial."
"The Fallout 3 pace that we did was very chaotic. We did a lot of them -- we had two overlapping groups -- and we don’t know what we’re going to make yet, but we’d like them to be closer to an expansion pack feel," said Howard.
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC November 11th. Have you enjoyed the DLC offerings from Bethesda's latest RPG titles, videogamer?
