Bethesda has assured fans that they have a lot of DLC planned for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, and that it will be brimming with content, and it’ll actually be useful. So no horse armour.
“[We are looking at] ways to make the game better, not just have more, because the game is so big,” Todd Howard told Joystiq. “We’re going through ideas right now, and processing everything people are doing in the game, and trying to think of ways that we can improve it.
“[We] don’t have a timetable. They won’t be quick, and they’ll have a lot of meat on them.”
When asked if we’d ever see multiplayer in an Elder Scrolls game, he said: “You can never say never to anything like that, but it’s not what our focus is.
“This type of game is where our hearts are, what we get excited about, and that’s what we want to focus on. We don’t want to lose that focus and we never want to sacrifice anything in the singleplayer game just to have it be multiplayer.”
On the RPGs astounding success, Howard was pleased and pleasantly surprised. “We thought it would do well, but it has gone above and beyond.”
