Bethesda wants 'less but bigger' Skyrim DLC

Director aiming for "expansion pack feel"

Bethesda's said it intends to release fewer downloadable content packs for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim than it has done with previous titles.

Speaking to AUS Gamers, game director Todd Howard said he wants to make those fewer game add-ons "more substantial", with an "expansion pack feel".

"We would like to do DLC; we don't have any specific plans yet, but they've been really successful and we like making them," Howard said in an interview.

"So right now I can say that we'd like to do less DLC but bigger ones - you know, more substantial."

In the past the Elder Scrolls dev's been a bit hit and miss where DLC's concerned; Fallout 3's add-on packs caused a flurry of complaints over bugs and glitches, while Oblivion's overly-expense Horse Armour needs no introduction.

"The Fallout 3 pace that we did was very chaotic," Howard admitted.

"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."
