Skyrim DLC: Most requested, most feared and multiplayer

By Alan Ng - Dec 14, 2011

If you have been playing Skyrim endlessly since the game launched on November 11, there’s a high probability that you are now keeping a close eye on any developments regarding official DLC releases for the game. We know that DLC is definitely coming, but now we have some of the most requested and most feared ideas to share with you.

At the moment, Bethesda has yet to announce any DLC for the game, as they probably still prioritizing fixing the game up further for those that are having ongoing problems. That hasn’t stopped fans dropping some ideas for what they want to see though, and as you can imagine there are plenty of great ideas.

One of these is the possibility of heading back to Morrowind and Cyrodiil and taking everything from Skyrim back into those worlds to undertake new quests. Obviously this is a big ask for Bethesda as the content would be massive, but one strong rumor shown here reveals how it isn’t exactly impossible to imagine.

Other requests for Skyrim involve Bethesda putting more guilds into the game, adding huge dungeons with endless treasure for players to explore, and introducing the ability to fly dragons in Skyrim. We’ve also seen a lot of requests for more dragon shouts to be included as DLC, but we feel that all these so far come under the minor category. Bethesda has said multiple times that the DLC for Skyrim will be ‘substantial’ and add quality over quantity, which makes chances of expansion-pack style DLC much more likely.

There’s probably a good reason why Bethesda hasn’t announced anything yet, and we hope it is because the content is so big that they still haven’t finished building it yet. As for some of the content that you don’t want to see, we think that horse armor is probably top of your lists and is also specifically mentioned in an related article here over at OXM, which lists ‘eight things that we don’t want to see as DLC’. Other notable mentions that they don’t want to see is more repetition of enemies, i.e – adding new enemies in specific locations would be better, rather than adding a new enemy but have them appear all the time like the current system.

One idea which probably won’t happen but we have seen plenty of requests for is multiplayer. The Elder Scrolls franchise is best-known for its single-player gameplay, but for some reason multiplayer remains a high priority for some gamers. We’re not sure how Bethesda would make this work though, unless they somehow made it possible for a second player to just jump in at any moment during the times when players are just roaming around the world. Perhaps this is a job best reserved for the modding community, as we’re sure they can come up with something along these lines.

Hopefully it won’t be too long until Bethesda dish out some official information on Skyrim, but in the meantime let us know your wishlist for Skyrim. What would you love to see, what would you hate to see, and what are your opinions on multiplayer?
