Last minute Skyrim DLC wishes before release

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?

I want more things to make you want to be a vampire or werewolf like special armor, weapons, and skills for the vampires for example: Instead of Ebony armor you get Reaper armor or instead of Dragonbone armor it turns into Bonelord armor all with their own Gothic or Evil look to them. Instead of Daedric Great Axe it is a Vampire demon scythe. Vampiric instant kills like biting to soul sucking. AND VAMPIRE LORD IS A MUST HAVE. Werewolves instead of losing their armor it magically warps into were armor still not whole but pieces still holding on buy… Read more »

yes a war against the thalmor would be very nice with help from the dragons of course that you befriend and the rise of the blades again. Also if possible if really possible no joke but become the emperor of all of tamerial just think about tiber septim he was a dragonborn and he became emperor after his war against the aldmeri dominion and created a grand empire since the empire we know today in skyrim is crumbling you have the power to bring it back to its formor glory and become something. if you want proof on why the… Read more »

i want a relm like the shivering isles and you could fast travel around the land of the elder scrolls or a underground city with a new guild and you can buy a house there and maby there could be a cave where some pure snow elfs are and a cool archer armor with a hood and mask and bring knights of the nine back and when you see shogorath in skyrim your looking at your self from oblivion?

http://forums.bethso…r/page__st__210 With a Poll on the first thread that is now closed showed the community was largely in favor of this coming back in one form or another. I decided posted this thread to continue the support to show the Skyrim Developer’s that we indeed want this back. Jumping Height, I really hope in future content (Boots of Springheel Jack) the developer’s will let us increase jumping height or have it as Perks for the Vampire and Werewolf. Now Im not talking about jumping over castles and some of that silly nonsense from Oblivion. Just enough to jump on top… Read more »

I want to limit actually the enchantment and blacksmithing.  Put a cap on it so we are forced to always get bigger and better gear.  My heavy armor in the game is very high and magic can’t touch me.  It’s cool, but with an expansion there won’t be a true challenge unless there’s crazy strong bosses and mobs.  Make new gear harder to obtain.  It would just be too easy to utilize my sneaking to get what I want without fighting for it.  How about some nomadic AI as well?  Just because they’re “NPC’s” doesn’t mean they can’t wander the… Read more »

Online Arena DLC, one on one battle to the death, capture the Keep teams of eight, Big Team Combat, put some set amounts of restrictions on it, so bodies won’t go flying off all the time, like limited amounts of shouts/magic spells one can use in battle. Something like that, just my Imagination running :D. Or a new Questline, such as, a student from the arcane university travels to Skyrim in search of the Dragon Born, a letter is sent to the Dragon Born that says to meet the student at a location at night. When the Dragon Born arrives,… Read more »

I’d like to see better/more diverse armour and clothing for mages. It get’s a bit boring when you’re pretty much forced to wear the Arch Mage’s robes with Morokei, as it’s easy to get quite early on and unless you’re proficient in heavy armour with a high amount of magika, you get pretty much slaughtered if you try wear anything else.

Well I do, anyway.

I agree with the monster hunter element in the game, that would be great, ive wanted to see a trip back to cyrodill, but i think i long more to return to morrowind, maybe a thalmor invasion is occuring and you have to go to these two places to gain forces to aid the stormcloaks/empire

i personally would like to see something either continue from civil war to elect a new high king of skyrim or something to do with the thalmor as my daedric sword wishes to attack any type of elve for some reason

I bet the DLC will be something that nobody really wants, and they’ll release it 5 months after they say they’ll release it.
