They want future downloadable adventures to have an "expansion pack feel." Previous Bethesda DLC has been "really successful" - 'less is more'.
Also confirmed? Players can keep on truckin' after the main quest in Skyrim is completed. Bethesda noticed quite a backlash when Fallout 3 ended and even corrected the 'mistake' with a piece of downloadable content.
"No, you’ll definitely be able to.. when you finish the main quest you can just keep playing," assured Todd Howard. Skyrim uses an all-new engine and so far is looking an incredibly vibrant and dynamic world to go exploring in.
"We would like to do DLC; we don’t have any specific plans yet, but they’ve been really successful and we like making them. So right now I can say that we’d like to do less DLC but bigger ones -- you know, more substantial."
"The Fallout 3 pace that we did was very chaotic. We did a lot of them -- we had two overlapping groups -- and we don’t know what we’re going to make yet, but we’d like them to be closer to an expansion pack feel," said Howard.
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC November 11th. Have you enjoyed the DLC offerings from Bethesda's latest RPG titles, videogamer?
