Skyrim: Console DLC Vs PC Mods – Ideas that you wouldn’t mind paying for

By Alan Ng - Nov 15, 2011

If you have already racked up countless of hours of Skyrim and have already completed the main storyline dare we say it, then there’s a good chance that you may already be switching your focus to DLC for the epic game. Bethesda has already confirmed that there will be substantial DLC for the game, but what would you like to see?

We are catering this towards console gamers more than PC gamers, since most of you will be aware that PC gamers will get the huge incentive of being able to download additional features for the game at no extra cost, by way of custom-generated mods thanks to the Skyrim Creation Kit – which Bethesda has yet to release by the way.

Console owners on the other hand will have to make do with DLC instead, so what would you like to see? Xbox 360 gamers will get the first taste of Skyrim DLC as part of Bethesda’s exclusive agreement with Microsoft of course, so with that in mind – what new features would you like in game that you wouldn’t mind paying for?

We seen a lot of requests for the ability to fly dragons around Skyrim, while we hilariously read online that some of you want Bethesda to re-insert their glitch where they revealed that chickens were ‘reporting crimes’. One great idea which we would like to see in the game is some more factions to join, such as a vampire faction perhaps. Skyrim introduces the werewolf companions to the game, so why not add a quest line for vampires too – that would be a hit with a lot of you we’re sure. Adding content on the same scale of Shivering Isles would obviously be most welcome as well, we’re talking about new weapons, new enemies, more rare items to loot (Morag Tong assassin anyone?) and so on.

One thing that Bethesda needs to avoid is adding minor DLC such as the horse armor which caused an uproar in the community to say the least. We doubt that Bethesda will repeat such tactics though, as Todd Howard has already confirmed that Skyrim DLC will be of less quantity than previous games, but each release will be worthwhile for gamers in terms of content.

If you have the console version of Skyrim, what would you like to see added as DLC? Alternatively, if any PC owners are reading this – do you have any great ideas for upcoming mods?
