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

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?

Armor for horses and dragons, really f-ing B/A equiptment, make it hard to find i dont care. of course more missions,more stuff ect,,, the mystical creatures variety of different unicorns, maybe pegasus, two headed water dragons and monsters, ect… thanx

I’d like a vampire DLC where you could join a guild/cult of vampires, do quests for/with them and gain like a ring to restist the sun debuff and the furter you get in the quests you would get more in control of the disease, like becoming a master vampire where you get strnoger and faster and you’re attacks like vampiric drain actually hurts an opponent instead of tickling them ._. Just add the the vampires, make them worth being, the only thing worht it is to be a necromage vampire which improves all enchanted items, all spells, all shouts and… Read more »

Ability to go to elsewhere. (I know I spelled it like it is said) because when I learned about it in game, it sounded cool. Add a desert area and a tropic rainforest. In the desert you could have like sand worm things that travel under the sand. Or in the tropic add mesquito type monsters. Or that kinda thing

Multiplayer. All I really ask. Intead of having followers that don’t do what I ask, allow friends to join you. I’m not saying mmo level multiplayer. Just like 4 people at least in a “party”

Oh, and also, I think a war on a massive scale would be awesome. The Battle for Whiterun was fun: just killing guys left and right. But a war with legions and legions of soldiers to fight would be even cooler.

This is the first Elder’s Scroll game I’ve played, and I love it. My friends, however have played the others and they said that in Marrowind you could wear layers beneath your armor like tunics and pants. I’d like to be able to wear layers underneath my armor and also be able to enchant those items separately. Also, an ability to change the color of your armor would be awesome too; perhaps you could add a crushing bowl at places where you crush different plants for different colors.

I want some point with the whole marriage thing. I think it would be cool if someone kidnaped the wife or husband and it started some kind of quest chain. You could do so much with that concept it just seems pointless to leave that as it is. And please modify the spouses to keep some kind of personality after the marriage, if I marry some uggly grump I dont want him/her to act like Betty Cleaver, thats just weird.

Since the whole point of all the guilds, brotherhoods ect is to eventually become the leader of it, I would like to be able to hand out jobs like the leaders before me did.. If i am the leader of the dark brotherhood for ex I would like the mother to tell me the job and then I send someone to go there and they report to me when done and I report back to her or something like that.. same with the thieves guild.. Im the leader, i dont want to do these dumb jobs that vex hands out..… Read more »

I would love to see dlc in Cyrodil, maybe jadger tharn returns from the dead and attacks the empire, or maybe there has been a big misunderstanding between the thalmore dominion and the empire and a war is brewing up between the two, or maybe a war is brewing up between argonia and the empire! Or maybe there could be dlc in hammerfell or highrock, oh my god! So many ideas!

I can see a DLC perhaps about WHY your character was trying to cross the border into Cyrodil amidst the war which indeed lead you to the tutorial mission in Helgen. The character obviously has some skill in fighting beit Magic, Stealth or Combat and overall I think there could be a great story involving Cyrodil which you could pursue once the Civil War is ended. Maybe have a pilgrimage or a bigger story involving your family but it could make for some exciting content and possibly lead to a Cyrodil with greater graphics. Kvatch would have been rebuilt by… Read more »

I’ve not yet completed the game or the Thieves’ Guild quest line (despite plunking in almost 70 hours of game time, I’m probably only half way through act 1 and Level 42), but I would love a DLC that was centered around the recovery, and perhaps enhancement of the Grey Fox items. Perhaps even new shouts that the Dovahkiin can learn/have available as the Grey Fox. That would be a “minor” DLC though, like an hours or two worth of missions is what I would call a minor DLC. If they are doing ‘substantial’ DLC, they’ll need to expand the… Read more »

I personally think that it would be awesome to go to Atmora. That’s the homeland of the Nords, and it would be cool to see who stayed, how they advanced, etc.

How about a DLC that returns of all of awesome summons that were in oblivion that are not in Skyrim, for example the daedroth(cant spell but the giant crocodile daedra) or even a scamp.  Perhaps bringing back spell making, a vampire faction wouldn’t be a bad idea. Perhaps it would be cool if they have a DLC where u can have a lair and you can create or expand a faction(Even recruit). Also as a big DLC how about the return of Cyrodil, I would love to revisit the imperial city. Hell why not even make it possible to join… Read more »

I want a DLC for a hardcore mode where the following happens; You heal when you meet special people in towns aka doctors or witches, the animals go extinct if you keep on killing and cows,deer’s, wolf’s should walk in packs not just two or three, mating(having children and training them, you don’t have to show the sex and the birth) or just adopting and training an orphan or something. Plus outside the hardcore would be taming mammoths and dragons and having giants as companions and also riding both mammoths and dragons. The games awesome already and i haven’t even… Read more »

A want a DLC a new land to explore and new storyline and sidequests. Basically the Fallout New Vegas DLC style. I want the first to be Dark and grotesque. Mostly want a faction war–Vampires vs Werewolves vs Humans but no Twighlight crap.

I don’t really care for DLC, it’s gonna be buggy and there is no point to get it since the game as a random quest generator, wich means cou can play forever. Plus, you get mods. Moders are already hard at work to try and fix the game performance issues. Bethesda won’t fix the low res clothes, armor, textures etc. Moders will release high res for everything (wich they already did for faces armors and other stuff). I will support the modder community rather than the developper releasing a game with graphics looking like a 2005 game on steroids.

I’ve been waiting for Skyrim for soooo long… But now I look at the screenshots and it seems to me it’s the same Oblivion… I’m not even sure I should try to play it now…

Mark Cubbedge

I would like to be able to actually play instruments like the lute and drum in the game. It could be a hit if they implement it D&D style so that they can cast illusion spells on people because they are mesmerized by the music. Also, why be a bard college member when you can’t do what bards do. I loved seeing them perform at bars but when I joined the guild all I got was a few misc quests that had little to do with being a bard.
