Todd Howard: Skyrim DLC will “feel closer to” expansion packs

Just because The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an enormous game doesn’t mean that players have had their fill, trying to dig up whatever details they can on the upcoming DLC that Bethesda has promised for the game. Speaking to Kotaku last week at the DICE Summit, Todd Howard said that the DLC would be less frequent, but more substantial than what they did for Fallout 3.

“For Fallout 3 we did five DLCs,” said Howard. “That was a very aggressive path for us. Our plan now is to take more time, to have more meat on them [for Skyrim]. They’ll feel closer to an expansion pack.”

Howard also spoke about his desire to release other, free content in between those DLC packs to help expand the game, such as the recently released high-res texture packs and mod tools for the PC version of the game.
