Speculating new Skyrim DLC improvements
Love it or hate it Skyrim is a great game and while there have been one or two issues, fans have been pretty pleased so far. The developers have been working hard to resolve a few issues (mostly with the PS3) and the latest 1.4 patch looks to have done the job, although there are a few gamers who still report their lag issue still persists. Now that this problem is all but eradicated and Bethesda has now made their official Creation Kit and Texture Pack available we now look to the new DLC and what improvements they can bring to the game.
We are not certain when the new Skyrim DLC will be released but we do know the developers are working hard to come up with something special, and there is no shortage of fans speculating what improvements we are likely to see. One advancement that has caused a bit of a stir last week was the dragon riding rumor, as there was a mixed reaction in regards to how such a featured would affect the immersion of the game.
While some gamers believe there are many downsides to flying one of these mythical creatures, others believe replacing fast travel with a dragon would be greater fun. Speaking of faster travel there have been suggestions of Waygates, which is said to allow for even faster travel, this could be far better than what we currently have in the game, as it would cut down travel time and allow you to get much further in the game in any given time.
There’s no denying that the guards in the game are a bit linear because they all seem to say the same thing, so having them converse differently will improve those little chats you have with them. They could also react to their surroundings, so when the sun goes down you might see them light a torch so they can see who is approaching them, it’s the small details that can make a game like Skyrim even bigger.
We have also heard of a few suggestions for improved combat but improving this could be much harder than some of the other wanted features in the upcoming DLC, we know combat is very limited and being able to pull different moves off would be fun but this is not likely to happen.
Some Skyrim fans are asking for stories to be expanded because while there are great ones within The Elder Scrolls V, some of them seem to stop short and leave you wondering what it was all about. It has been widely rumored that DLCs will make this game almost endless so surely this means we can expect some new missions?
One of the most interesting possibilities is time travel because we know Bethesda has showed that it’s possible, and could open up the world of Skyrim in a far bigger way than we could imagine. While the thought of this sounds a little strange we cannot help but think how cool it would be to see what happened to some of the races that are no longer in the world of Skyrim.
These are just a few ideas fans have had for the upcoming DLC but what would you like to see?
