Considering that the last three articles on this site have been related to Skyrim, hopefully I don’t have to reiterate that most of us at Chaotic-Games are obsessed with Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls in general. The series has captured the minds and hearts of millions over the years, and the success of Skyrim is easily seen in the sheer amount of hours gamers are pouring into it. But, I digress.
Zenimax recently filed for a trademark on something called Dawnguard. Here is a direct quote from that page, under the Goods and/or Services section: ”Computer game software for use with computers and video game consoles; downloadable computer game software offered via the internet and wireless devices.” Of course, that alone isn’t enough to determine exactly what it is, but it gives us a pretty good idea, and we can sure speculate and start some firey rumors.
When talking about DLC for Skyrim, Todd Howard said in December that they are focusing on “ways to make the game better, not just have more, because the game is so big.” He assures us any and all releases will have “a lot of meat on them.”
For now, we can only watch, wonder and hope. My personal hope is that the rumors about the possibility of players being able to travel to Cyrodiil or Morrowind will come to fruition. I would love to see how the Imperial City has changed over a period of a couple hundred years. It’s possible that it could be related to the Mythic Dawn, the cult responsible for the assassination of Emperor Uriel Spetim VII during the events of Oblivion. But once again, we only have so much to go on.
As soon as we hear more, you know where to go to get updated. We’ll be waiting.
What are you hoping for with Skyrim DLC? Make some noise in the comments and let us know.
