Skyrim is to released this Friday, although it will probably come as no surprise that DLC is already in the works for the Fantasy RPG.
Todd Howard, the game’s director and producer, speaking in a recent interview with Wired.com, has said that although there will be downloadable content for the RPG, it will be a case of “less is more.”
“Very quick DLC might sell well, but that’s not our priority.
“We’re not going to be doing a lot of it. Our high-level thinking is that there’ll be not as many [pieces of DLC], but they’ll be bigger and more substantial,” he said. “The goal overall is not necessarily to put out more content, but to make the game better.”
According to Howard, the DLC, which will be timed exclusive on the Xbox 360, won’t arrive any time soon, furthermore, it also seems like the final format of the content will depend very much on feedback from gamers.
“We’ll start hitting on everything after vacation,” Howard said. “We’ll take a break [after the game launches], see what consumers think of the game, then see which direction we want to go.”
