Upcoming Skyrim DLC teased via Twitter

So far, Bethesda Softworks has released two DLC packs for its hit 2011 RPG The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim. One was Dawngaurd, which was launched for the PC in August and was a story driven expansion. The other PC DLC pack, released in October, was Hearthfire and was more of a sandbox pack, letting users create their own home inside the game's world.

Now it appears that there will be a new DLC announcement made on Monday. Bethesda's official Twitter page has posted up word that a trailer will be released on that day, and offers up a image to whet our appetites.

Some enterprising PC gamers recently dived into the source code for Skyrim. VG247.com reports that they found references to a DLC pack called Dragonborn. Before this weekend, Bethesda Softworks, as usual, would not comment on these reports. Hopefully this teaser means our questions will be answered on Monday.

It's likely that whatever DLC pack is announced, it will be released first for the Xbox 360 console, with the PC version getting the same content about a month or so later. So far, the PS3 port has yet to receive any DLC packs.

Awesome! looking forward to it. The MS exclusive deal is a real pain in the arse, not to mention it cost MS alot of money for nothing! PS3 is yet to see any DLC (or even the latest patch) and most likely never will and the PC isn't even regarded as competition. So that deal didn't really give them an edge on anything, could've saved all that money and won on merit alone (considering the DLC is Xbox exclusive by default)

Haha, I like the excuse they used for the PS3 though, it can't handle the DLC or something... Right but a 360 can! And no doubt the content will be leaked from xbox -> PC before the PC version is released.

The issue comes from the fact that Sony decided to use a split RAM system. The Creation engine unlike other game engines runs everything that is going on in the world. NPC's daily lives, quest triggers, random encounters, and so on are going on in the background. I don't know of any other game engine like that, most just load an area and then ignore the area you just left.

Yes it can, its similar to a PC in the way it manages RAM. I recall Oblivion having a similar problem. The PS3 wasn't able to run too many seperate DLC packs at once due to its RAM usage. I'm not sure if they were ever able to fix it and bring all DLC packs to PS3.

But you can't really blame Sony for it. They never expected DLC to be such a big thing. Microsoft was first to the DLC scene, actively promoting the use of DLC among their thirdparty partners. So the PS3 wasn't build with DLC in mind, whereas it was part of the X360's road map since day 1.
