Bethesda: Skyrim DLC Info Might Finally Arrive "Next Week"

Well, "a little more info" is better than nothing. And it's soon, too, so that should appease the fans.

Ever since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launched to widespread critical acclaim last November, Bethesda hasn't been forthcoming about any add-on content. Of course, the game is so freakin' massive, I'm not sure it even needs more content. But it's a new generation, I guess.

Anyway, Bethesda vice president of PR and marketing Pete Hines updated his Twitter page with the following:

"I am working on getting a little more info out on Skyrim/DLC. Maybe next week? We'll see. Also trying to confirm Kinect release date."

Before the title hit store shelves, the publisher was clear about one thing: It would have fewer but meatier expansion packs. Therefore, whatever it is they plan to announce, expect a substantial and worthwhile piece of DLC. But PlayStation 3 owners have to remember that Microsoft has the Skyrim DLC exclusive for one month; it's not exactly shocking but it can be annoying for owners of Sony's machine.

So hopefully, Bethesda will announce the long-awaited DLC next week and everyone can just keep playing one of the biggest games in existence.

Well even after over 100 hours I still havnt touched the main quest so as much as I'll want this I certainly don't need it right away. I got a lot left to do.

I really don't like this timed exclusive stuff. I know MS has gotten close to a few developers this generation, but it's extremely annoying. I paid money for the game too, ya know!? I also noticed there was a mention of "kinect" in the twitter quote. That's just ridiculous. I feel comfortable betting MS forced that issue. I see no point in any developer going out of their way to incorporate a gimmick, especially this long after release.

Well, don't forget that TESIV was an Xbox360 exclusive for over a year until it was brought to PS3.

I think the timed exclusivity is as close to any kind of advantage MS could get on the TES series.

The money Bethesda makes from the PS3 versions is definitely much more than M$ could pay them to make it Xbox exclusive.

Whilst i dont own a box and probably never will, Kinect. Hmmm...

If it's implemented well, that may be pretty cool.

The buggy Bethesda meets the buggy Kinect.

Two bugs don't make a right.

The kinect is only being implemented for voice controls.

Lets you use dragon shouts, open menus and the map, issue orders to followers, and some other things using the voice controls of the kinect.

Beth have said that the motion controls of the kinect would not work well with a game like Skyrim.

Still not interested. I will see when the GOTY edition comes out possible end of year and see what it comes with. And then wait for the price to lower.

Too many other games to play.

Keep Playing.

The only reason why I agree with you, is because once you start playing Skyrim, it will eat ALL of your spare time. Those other games you want to play will be completely forgotten about.

But still, it deserves a look :)

They are taking a different approach to DLC for Skyrim, which means we might not see a GOTY edition till next year.

I don't think I'll ever finish that game, I loved it to death but didn't make a dent in 80 hours and then new games started coming out.

I'm excited for some dlc. I'm only 80 hours in but I've done the main, companions, dark brotherhood, and the thieves guild quests. There is still a ton to do but it is getting repetitive. All these little side quests are go kill this dragon or clear this dungeon. It's just getting boring to me.

Like this game even needs DLC. Most games you're lucky to get over 40 hours of gameplay with add-ons and what not.

Skyrim with no DLC has sucked over 200 hours away from me and I still haven't found everything.

I can however one shot a dragon from 100 yards out.

You know, I am up to 120 hours. But I have nearly finished everything. But I can totally understand how you could spend 200+ hours with this game. I spend probably about 40 hours just exploring Skyrim, and taking in everything it had to offer.

When it comes to TES Skyrim, I went from a total sceptic to an absolute believer.

Really finished every at that time? Every cave, every building, every trophy?

You must be a speed demon, although I guess I spend a lot of time crafting and trying to make that perfect weapon or piece of armor.

I have done some side quests and the main quest is done.

Myself I'll wait for the Game Of The Year Edition. Got loads of other stuff to play between now and then anyway.

Just in time I guess, I just got the platinum for skyrim a couple of nights ago and I was about to start a new build I was thinking about. I'll wait for the dlc to drop and then go though it with my original character, then play something else lol.

I stopped doing the main quest at about 70 hours. I am at 120 hours now and nearly finished all side quests and got all artifacts.

Nearly time to go finish the main quest, hopefully the DLC drops before that, i don't want to stop playing!

Not saying it can't be done, but I have no idea how you're almost done with the game at 120 hours. I'm over 100 and havnt even touched the main quest.

I'm up to around 200 hours and have much more left to do. Might be the way I play it that's extending the life. I don't just run from mission to mission like I'm ticking boxes to get to the end of the game. I LIVE in skyrim. Even now I might just spend an in game day chopping wood for the pub landlady to get a hot tip on a bandit bounty. I know I don't need to do that but it helps bring the game to life.

ironic.
developers whine till their faces are blue that people trade in their games, then support them like this!
oh the irony is killing me!
one day developers will understand 6 months after release is FAR too late to release the first pack of DLC!
ok its a big pack and takes allot of time to finish but come on!
most people waiting on this would of got bored and traded it by now!
not to mention everyone thinking of trading it in would of done so by now, especially since EB had a special deal on if you traded skyrim in within 3 months of release you got 80 bucks for it.
most games once you purchase it no matter how soon you trade it your lucky to get half that!
i remember trading in forza 4 2 weeks after release and only got 38 bucks for it!
