The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim won’t be pulling cheap stunts such as the legendary horse armor when it comes to downloadable content according to director Todd Howard. He promises that any upcoming DLC will be substantial, giving off an “expansion pack” feel.
“They’ve been really successful and we like making them,” said Howard, talking about expansions. “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.”
I think Bethesda did great with its Fallout DLC, so if it wants to improve on that system, I’m all for it. Nothing wrong with taking one’s time to craft quality DLC.
