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.
