Skyrim DLC without major issues

We haven’t heard a lot of news about Skyrim DLC from those behind the game, although we know many of the major bugs are fixed, so this should mean more focus by Bethesda on the upcoming downloadable content. This has left a gap after the Creation Kit and latest 1.5 patch, which is being filled with speculation and debate by fans on what the Skyrim DLC should include.

Bring the Skyrim expansion without problems — this is an almost impossible task considering all DLC is followed with bugs, which then get fixed with updates from the devs but it’s also fair to say some downloadable content has more issues than others. Not to mention the amount of games adding weak content not worth paying for, so we want Bethesda to take time and create something absolutely amazing to let us spend another 300 hours playing the game.

We’ve seen a number of stories posted that point to “meat” in the upcoming content, although we’ve heard this before and while we continue to get responses on Twitter from those behind Skyrim, it’s normally the same information and the developers are keeping very tight lipped about the details. We know it’s going to be big like a “world expansion” and there are many roads leading out of Skyrim that could be taken advantage of, although the recent video tease from developers showed what is possible.

What are you feeling right now when it comes to the wait for Skyrim DLC, and do you mind waiting so we get content that is free from major issues? We have confidence in Bethesda to bring something special, dragon mounts are top of my list, and after putting in over 300 hours within the first couple of months we had to stop, although there are still loads of gamers playing every day. Did you get bored with Skyrim after putting in many hours, and could DLC bring you back?

While there is so much more we can do in Skyrim, even after 300 hours of gameplay, we feel like fresh content is needed but also with some extra features like riding dragons, horse armor, and even being given the ability to run our own town and command an army. This idea is not to everyone’s taste just like co-op DLC, but for us it’s something that would be a game-changer for the better. What ideas do you have for Skyrim DLC, which you want and might never see the light of day?

Everyone has a different level of patience for Skyrim DLC — Bethesda has focused on fixing the bugs/glitches and this has certainly slowed progress on any release date for DLC, and some gamers feel there shouldn’t be a time frame for the developer, although I feel they have to get the balance right because waiting too long could drive people onto other games. Then when we think about other RPGs that are like Skyrim or better, our mind goes blank so feel free to share your thoughts on what games you’re playing if you stepped away from Skyrim?

If you want Skyrim DLC without issues then it will take extra time, unless you are a gamer that is willing to have the downloadable content now and happy for the developer to patch it later. If you still had problems with Skyrim, would you be willing to pay for DLC?

The Skyrim DLC story has fans already willing to part with cash — towards the end of last year we had over 400 comments from our readers on what they’d like to see with Skyrim DLC to bring them back to the game, and while some people left Skyrim just as many stayed. Bethesda has continued to release patches for the game and v1.4 fixed many bugs, but some of our readers still reported issues with certain quests. Last month we saw a new concept video from the developers, which got fans thinking about some of these features being introduced into the upcoming DLC. We also know that Bethesda is looking at the future for other games, especially considering they posted a job opportunity for a “next-gen game” a couple of weeks ago.

It would be nice to throw in some more action packed missions and at least let the follower ride a horse with you. Hopefully in the new DLC we can ride dragons like said earlier in te article

I’d like to see a very large and involving quest chain with some emotional impact, new monsters and areas and the difficulty re-scaled to add a lot more challenge from the outset and throughout.  A new combat move or two would be very welcome.

I’ll buy the DLC, but only if I get to sate my character’s genocidal rage against the Thalmor.

everybody talks about riding a dragon, and how sweet it would be… personally i don’t understand why, you’re gonna be invincible to most things, and how much fun is that really? i think i would get bored of that quite quickly… but the arena idea is a good idea… but you gotta win sweet stuff, some armor, a weapon… and the game for sure needs more armor… and horse armor would be okay, as long as its thrown into the mix, not a download itself… and a whole new area would be nice, i have over 500 hours in the… Read more »

A lot of articles have been about the hope of dragon riding, though in fact I would be a little disappointed if they spent time on making it work in game (such as the problem with flying over cites that are actually part of their own cell, like whiterun or windhelm, with out breaking immersion to much), opposed to adding a new quest line (unless of course the riding becomes unlocked by the quest line). Not to say I wouldn’t want to ride a dragon, but I need something to DO with my dragon. Also keep in mind the list of mods Bethesda did a while… Read more »

Nice.  Way to turn a legitimate posting offer into some lame flamer rebuttals.  Enough.

I would love to see the Skyrim DLC include dragon riding and/or attacks from dragon/ horses.  More special named items would be great rewards for those longer quests.  Removing the scaled difficulty from Oblivioun was a disappointment, as I constantly wish the game wasn’t as easy – even on the highest level of difficulty I tend to walk right through most quests with little to no death.  Definitely an expansion of the acquatic areas would be amazing-  some battles or fights between ships and/or ships and ground forces !!

I really want to have DLC(s) unlock the paths to Morrowind, Cyrodil, and Hammerfell… of course along with new content. If they don’t release those for DLC then the next game better be named Elder Scrolls VI: Tamriel.

I don’t mind this taking time–I wan’t this to be a good release. I’ve been playing Oblivion in the meantime so when the DLC comes out, the glory of Skyrim will be recognized fully…. If they take too long I may have to start playing Morrowind… but hopefully not so long that I would have to put in… Modern Warfare 3

I want to see a DLC to Pyandonea. You get kidnapped by pirates. They knock you out by a surprise attack (Probably in Dawnstar).  You lose your equipment. You’re headed for Western High Rock coast but a storm blows you heavily off course, shipwrecked onto island. Start anew (or with a single weapon/armor from previous inventory) and then quest to find Orgnum. (Could include a few new shouts, weapons, spells, blah blah blah)

More weapons and armor…lots more. Including unique stuff. The game is much more fun for me when I end a quest with something new, especially items that can only be obtained through a specific quest, such as daedric artifacts. Quests get repetitive after hours of playing without anything special to gain from them.

dragon mounts would be flippin sweet, especialy since ive been talking about that the my friends for years. and being able to build your house where you want it and how you want it, would be cool. think about a house on the top of a mountian, just because you can. sweet!! one other thing that’d be cool, but maybe will never happen, putting all the maps together where you could roam freely between places.

What did I play when I stepped away from Skyrim? The entire Mass Effect series. Its lineair narrative style is everything Skyrim isn’t (and doesn’t aim to be). Playing TES always sturs up my need for empathic drama,  as my character always seems so superficiel in comparison to Bioware’s gems. Playing ME always sturs up my need for freedom, for exploration and roaming vast and spectacular worlds. Whatever DLC comes out for either of these series, I can wait, I’ll need time to get back to the point where I crave for some TES action anyway.

I see no reason why I would pay for DLC when mods are out there for full quests made by the community. Wars in Skyrim mod is awesome.  It adds heroic characters, extra patrols, extra creatures to fight, bosses, and you can choose what difficulty they spawn in.  You can choose if they match your level or are much harder etc. There are dragon mount mods. Different skins, different textures, a killmove/cam mods with extra animations, extra weapons (you can even get LOTR weapons etc), and there’s… Oh wait, you’re a console player? Ahahahaha. Ahh, my laugh of the day.… Read more »
