Xbox 360 gets timed exclusive Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC

First two add-on packs releasing 30 days earlier on Microsoft's console

Microsoft has secured timed exclusive releases for the first two DLC add-ons for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


"The first two add-on content drops for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be released exclusively on Xbox 360, 30 days before" they're available anywhere else, the platform holder said today.

The exact nature of the add-on content isn't clear, but game director Todd Howard said in June Bethesda wants to launch fewer but "more substantial" pieces of DLC than it has with previous titles, with an "expansion pack feel", so we're not expecting piddly in-game items.

To see the title in action, check out the first in-game footage, which was released last month.

Skyrim launches on November 11 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Here's what you'll get in the Collector's Edition.
