Skyrim DLC news possible for next week
Bethesda working to bring "a little more info" on latest Elder Scrolls title and future add-on content plans as early as next week; Kinect patch date not finalized.
Since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launched in November 2011, developer Bethesda Game Studios has not offered news on the first downloadable content for the game, but that may change next week.
Bethesda vice president of public relations and marketing Pete Hines wrote on Twitter this morning that the studio is "working on getting a little more info out on Skyrim / DLC." As for a timetable, Hines said gamers can expect news "maybe next week. We'll see."
Though Bethesda has not offered anything concrete regarding DLC for Skyrim, some details about forthcoming content have been dropped. Last June, Bethesda executive producer Todd Howard said Skyrim will have fewer but more substantial DLC packs.
Additionally, in August 2011, Microsoft announced that Skyrim DLC will launch as timed exclusives for the Xbox 360. That platform will be the sole destination to play Skyrim add-ons for the first 30 days, after which the content will head to other platforms.
On top of teasing the first Skyrim DLC, Hines noted that Bethesda is in the process of confirming a solid release date for the role-playing game's Kinect patch. The update is expected sometime in April, with one report suggesting it will launch this week.
