Bethesda has recently said that in April, they will have some ‘cool news and surprises’ in store for Skyrim players. Now, the company has released a teaser image and there’s speculation brewing that it could be attached to a potential DLC announcement this week.
For those of you that aren’t aware, it has been six months now since Skyrim first released back in November 2011 and we are yet to have a sniff of any sort of post-release content, on console anyway. The same cannot be said for PC users though, since they are probably not too desperate for new content as console users, as they have the full use of the Creation Kit and mods to enjoy whenever they want to spice up their game.
If you head to the official Bethesda Twitter account now, you’ll see that an image has been revealed of an unknown figure, along with the words ‘tomorrow’. Obviously there is no guarantee that this is Skyrim DLC related, but it probably wouldn’t be a good idea if Bethesda were to unveil something completely unrelated to Skyrim, as that may infuriate fans further.
Going back to Pete Hines’ Tweet at the end of last month though, he did say that Bethesda has some announcements concerning Rage too, so this is another reason why we shouldn’t get our hopes up too much. Having said that, we can’t hide our excitement on the future of the game as you just know that Bethesda are prepping something huge for the game on an epic scale of proportions.
After seeing the level of quality in their expansion packs for Oblivion, we can’t wait to see what they come up with for Skyrim. The ultimate release for us would be a trip back to Cyrodiil, but if Bethesda announce some brand new locations to gamers we wouldn’t mind that either. A lot of people want to see random epic boss battles when travelling around and we agree that adding Monster Hunter style elements into the game would add a brand new dimension to Skyrim.
We saw with Bethesda’s Game Jam clip that possibilities are endless for DLC, so let’s hope that their reveal on Tuesday will be specifically linked to the first expansion pack. If you are playing Skyrim on console at the moment, tell us what you want to see in the first piece of DLC. Remember that it will be an Xbox 360 timed-exclusive for a month, just like Call of Duty. This will continue for the second piece of DLC as well, when it will then become available on PS3 and PC. It’s not ideal obviously, but that’s the way the industry works these days unfortunately.
What DLC do you want to see? What are your thoughts on the image released above by Bethesda – any ideas?
