There has been talk of Skyrim’s DLCs before the game was even released, and Bethesda has recently spoken, albeit briefly, on what the DLCs would be like.

Apparrently, Bethesda won’t follow the short-length DLC structure it followed with Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. Instead, Skyrim’s DLCs will be more like expansion packs (remember those?), with a lot more content to the DLC, with longer periods of time between each DLC release.

Speaking to Kotaku, Skyrim Lead Designer, Todd Howard, said “For Fallout 3 we did five DLCs. That was a very aggressive path for us,” he said. “Our plan now is to take more time, to have more meat on [Skyrim DLCs]. They’ll feel closer to an expansion pack”.

That is actually very good news. Fallout’s DLCs were a hit or miss, but Bethesda knows how to make expansions; remember Oblivion’s “Shivering Isles” expansion pack? Some people would go as far saying it was better than the actual game. If Skyrim’s DLCs are of that caliber, then we’ll be 100 hours we spent with Skyrim are about to get doubled.
