Skyrim will be getting a day one patch when it releases on Friday. The information comes courtesy of Nick Breckon, Community Manager of Bethesda who gave these details over at NeoGAF. Details of what the patch will include will not be shared until launch day.
In a seperate interview with Wired, Bethesda’s Game Director, Todd Howard, spoke about how the company will be approaching DLC in Skyrim.
We’re not going to be doing a lot of it. Our high-level thinking is that there’ll be not as many, but they’ll be bigger and more substantial. The goal overall is not necessarily to put out more content, but to make the game better. We’ll start hitting on everything after vacation, We’ll take a break, see what consumers think of the game, then see which direction we want to go.”
It is known that the first two pieces of Skyrim DLC will be timed exclusives for the Xbox 360, with PC and PS3 gamers receiving the DLC a month later, after each DLC’s release.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launche Friday November 11 on Xbox 360, PC & PS3.
