Bethesda Is Clueless Over Next Skyrim DLC — Focusing On Dawnguard
With the Dawnguard DLC releasing to gaming platforms starting this week, you might be wondering what Bethesda have planned for us next. Well, we’re here to tell you today that even they don’t know.
For the moment, the publisher has its eyes firmly set on Dawnguard for the moment.
“Everyone is working on [Dawnguard],” said lead artist Matt Carofano. “Once it’s out we’ll see how it goes and see what could happen in the future. We want to expand and add to the game to make it better, and Vampires were something we really hadn’t told a good story with — hadn’t really developed much — so we wanted to focus the DLC on that [and let people] play the game differently.”
While initial comments leaned towards a twenty-hour expansion, Carofano likened the DLC to a faction questline.
“If you decide to help the Vampires you can end the tyranny of the sun — you know, block out the sun — so they can come out at night and be more powerful,” he said. “Or you can join the Dawnguard and become a vampire hunter. You’ll be able to build up the vampire hunters’ base as you recruit new members, build crossbows, and even get an armored troll to come along with you to fight against the vampires.”
Dawnguard has released for Xbox 360 early due to Bethesda’s exclusivity agreement with Microsoft, and will release on PC and PS3 once the agreed exclusivity period ends.
