One of the first pieces of DLC ever on the Xbox 360 was for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and it was seen as being absolutely terrible. I mean of course the horse armor that was offered for horses in the game for a price of around two or three dollars. Now Todd Howard knows that some people may have been too happy with the way DLC was handled in Oblivion and this time around it won’t be that way.
Talking with AusGamers Howard explained that DLC has “been really successful and we like making them.” He also went into detail about future DLC saying “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.”
Now Oblivion still had the Shivering Isles content pack which was a huge expansion to the source material. Hopefully Bethesda will do just as great of a job with Skyrim’s DLC, as everyone wants to have more to do in the game, even with countless of other options already at their fingertips.
