While the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is still several months away, Bethesda game director, Todd Howard, is already discussing DLC plans. In an interview with AusGamers, Howard says the team intends to make Skyrim DLC “more substantial” than the offerings provided in Fallout 3. He also stated that said DLC would be available even after completing the main quest, alleviating one of the biggest complaints about Fallout 3’s DLC.

Howard goes on to detail the plan for Skyrim’s DLC, but also admits they haven’t actually started making any yet, stating, “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.”
From the sound of it, it seems like Skyrim’s DLC will be somewhere between Fallout 3’s DLC and Oblivion’s Shivering Isles expansion pack. Being a fan of both methods, the combination of them can only mean good things.
