Spotlight On Skyrim Redguard DLC But Smaller DLCs Likely First

By  | 

Skyrim has been out for a while now on the PS3, the Xbox 360 and the PC. It is thought that Bethesda may not move to Elder Scrolls 6 in 2013 as they could continue to release DLCs for Skyrim and this should bring in more revenue for the company.

The MD of Bethesda in Europe said that he was getting retailers help for selling Dragonborn, Dawnguard and Hearthfire on the Xbox 360 in shops. DLC packs will be making their way to the shelves soon for the PC and the PS3.

He said “We’ve already brought Dragonborn on PC to retail and we’re looking into Dawnguard. Skyrim fans will also be able to purchase all PS3 add-ons in-store throughout the next few weeks.” Meanwhile Bethesda have been plugging the game and the DLCs through Facebook and Twitter.

The MD pointed out that “We plan to continue promoting the game throughout the rest of the year through all our social channels, and through special initiatives at retail – both digital and brick-and-mortar.”

Bethesda does offer DLCs that are similar to expansions as they are full blown in comparison to the small one that were seen with Oblivion. Oblivion had a total of 10 DLCs with just two of them being major ones.

Fans are now waiting to hear news about a sequel to Skyrim, by way of Elder Scrolls 6. Skyrim is thriving at the moment on DLCs and this means that Bethesda will not be in a rush to release a new game. There are just three DLCs at the moment and if it is to follow in the footsteps of Oblivion then we could see many more.

Skyrim Redguard is said to be the next DLC and it could be huge, we haven’t yet seen any small ones that could be classed as mods. The DLCs bring in a lot of income for Bethesda, however small it may be for the price of an individual DLC, it adds up.

Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, PC, iPhone and Android games keep Berke busy at work all day. Honestly though we’re not sure why we’re paying him as it should be the other way around.
