Hold Ya Horses Skyrim 6! We Still Got Time For “Adventures In Hammerfell” On Current Consoles (Rumors)

By  | 

Fans of Skyrim could look forward to the next DLC being released in just months. This is thanks to Redguard having been trademarked by Bethesda. Recently Pete Hines went on Twitter and answered questions fans had been asking about the release date of Skyrim Redguard.

There is nothing to say that the official name will be Redguard, and at the moment no release date has been given. However if you look back into the history of the company you can make guesses about what may happen. Titles have been trademarked in the past before the announcement of the DLC and this means that we could be seeing the next DLC in spring. This would follow on from the December release of Dragonborn.

There have been many rumours going around that Pete Hines has been talking to fans, however his answers may not please everyone.

He said “We haven’t announced one nor said we are doing one.”

He also answered fans on Twitter, “@LShankley just the three [DLCs] you know of. no other dlc has been announced for skyrim.”

Well keep may be keeping quiet about the upcoming DLC we do have other sources of information.

There have been rumours about the release date for the new DLC that may be called Redguard; official Xbox magazine said that Bethesda had called Redguard “downloadable computer game software offered via the Internet and wireless devices.” They said that this seems to be conclusive evidence.

They also said the game would take place in Hammerfell, which is home to the aggressive Redguards. The piece said “You may already know from playing Skyrim that the Redguards are the fiercest warriors around. They also hate wizards and most types of magic.” The mag also said of the Redguards: “(they are) reportedly skilled in the use of Destruction magic, the latter aren’t big fans of wizards in general — they regard any combat art that doesn’t deal out punishment directly as dangerously effete.”

There are some people that believe Reguard is nothing more than a rumour and that the name has been trademarked so as to stop anyone else from using it. However you do have to bear in mind that with the release of each DLC the name has been trademarked just before. On the other hand the company have not trademarked the tribes of Elder Scrolls nor the places or factions.

Xbox magazine also believes that the DLC could take players to Dragonstar which is the city where the Nords and the Redguards live.

“According to the Elder Scrolls wiki, the city is (or at least, was) a hotbed of political contention, chopped up Berlin-Wall-style between the Nords and Redguards in the aftermath of a long-ceased war. Visit the site today (you’ll need access to a PC version and mod tools) and you’ll find only an oddly featureless, geometry-less stretch of land dotted with pine trees. Going on technological insight that I absolutely don’t have, this would seem a good foundation for an add-on: the less extent landscape there is to wrangle with, surely, the easier new assets are to install.

“An expansion set partly or entirely within Dragonstar would be an interesting experience, thanks to the aforesaid rocky local politics, but after playing Dragonborn, I suspect the bulk of the pack may once again take place off-shore. Bethesda’s decision to revisit the isle of Solstheim in the most recent expansion was a stroke of genius… Skyrim’s expansions could serve as a means of publicising the game’s wider universe prior to the launch of the continent-spanning Elder Scrolls Online.”

It has been said that the DLC is linked to another title. Players of Skyrim may remember that one of the hardest people to defeat was the Redguard Ebony Warrior.

So will Redguard be the next new DLC? And could the DLC be set in Hammerfell or will it be Dragonstar?
