DLC Coming For Skyrim, But Less Is Definitely More
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an absolutely mammoth game. It's just...stupid huge.
But maybe that isn't enough. Maybe the hardcore want even more. Well, we have good news: developer Bethesda told Wired.com that the team has already started working on downloadable content for the epic RPG.
However, they're not about to bombard you with a ton of rapid-fire DLC packages. Instead, they're adopting the philosophy they followed with Fallout 3; i.e., less is more. Said game director and producer Todd Howard:
"Very quick DLC might sell well, but that’s not our priority. We’re not going to be doing a lot of it. Our high-level thinking is that there’ll be not as many [pieces of DLC], but they’ll be bigger and more substantial,” he said. “The goal overall is not necessarily to put out more content, but to make the game better.”
Howard didn't have additional information for the upcoming DLC; he's not sure if the new content will be limited to new levels, or if the team might actually revamp core features and mechanics. "We don't want to leave anything off the table," he said. But for now, the team is taking a well-earned vacation; when they come back, they'll start cranking.
Man, don't make Skyrim bigger. Don't put more in it. That's just wrong.
