    Skyrim to have multiple DLC releases, powerful buckets

    Game Director Todd Howard was at the Spike Video Game Awards yesterday to accept a well-deserved Game of the Year award for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and he said to Joystiq that the game's popularity has surprised even the development team.
    "We thought it would do well," he said, "but it has gone above and beyond." One of the surprising effects of that popularity is the many YouTube videos (and "arrow in the knee" references) out there, but Howard says one in particular stood out to Bethesda. "I think our favorite really is putting the buckets on the heads," he laughed. "It was like day two, and we went, what? Do we fix that? Our lead programmer is pissed and wants to fix it, and I said I'm not sure we should. That's one of those where maybe we leave it in."

    Howard couldn't yet share plans for DLC, but he says it will be focused on "ways to make the game better, not just have more, because the game is so big. So we're going through ideas right now, and processing everything people are doing in the game, and trying to think of ways that we can improve it." There will be multiple releases (as with Bethesda's past games), but Howard says they "don't have a timetable. They won't be quick, and they'll have a lot of meat on them."

    For all of its successes, the one thing Skyrim doesn't have is other players. Is there a chance we'll ever see a multiplayer title, or even an MMO, from Howard and his company? "You can never say never to anything like that," he admitted, "but it's not what our focus is. This type of game is where our hearts are, what we get excited about, and that's what we want to focus on. We don't want to lose that focus and we never want to sacrifice anything in the singleplayer game just to have it be multiplayer."

    Most significant sentence in the whole quote. More companies should take his policy.

    I'm yet to open up my Skyrim, been playing other games, and been busy with stuff.
    Hopefully by the time I get to it, I'll have tons more fun in-game with the DLC.

    That is great news. But if skyrim was multiplayer it would be magnanimous( is that a word lol). They should have one disc for single player (Or 2) and the other for strict multiplayer. it might be a pain switching back discs but personally I wouldn't mind.

    Wouldn't be worth it from a developers stand point. Red Dead Redemption and GTAIV are both massive open worlds and play on one disc. MP wouldn't be all that massive depending (Using This as a basis). Other than that, it is a waste of time resources and effort copying the world and anything else that needs to carry over to multiple discs
