Skyrim’s DLC will punch you in the face with ‘meaty’ content

Bethesda Softworks has re-assured gamers that downloadable content for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be full of content, which has been carefully crafted from the feedback it has received from fans.

In an interview with Joystiq, Todd Howard stated that Bethesda is looking for ways to improve the game as well as having more things in the game.

“We’re going through ideas right now, and processing everything people are doing in the game, and trying to think of ways that we can improve it,” he said.

He also said that the developer doesn’t have a timeframe on the DLC’s release, but has reiterated that the DLC releases "won’t be quick" and "they’ll have a lot of meat on them."

Howard also commented on user feedback for the requests of multiplayer to be added into the game, where he said it wasn’t Bethesda’s focus, but isn’t ruling it out completely.

“This type of game is where our hearts are, what we get excited about, and that’s what we want to focus on. We don’t want to lose that focus and we never want to sacrifice anything in the singleplayer game just to have it be multiplayer.”

Howard is also pleased with the success of the action RPG thus far, saying “We thought it would do well, but it has gone above and beyond.”

As for the DLC, let’s just hope it’s not just some bloody horse armour.

Skyrim was awarded 2011’s Game of the Year at the VGAs, despite it being only a month old.
