In a recent interview Todd Howard divulged a lot of information on the upcoming Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim such as the PC version looking the best, modifications on consoles and DLC.
In an interview with AusGamers firstly Todd was asked if Skyrim would look better on PCs?
“Yeah it does, obviously the PC version looks better…”
The topic of mods on consoles was then brought up, could we ever see mods on consoles?
“Weve always supported it and we want to continue
to do it. But a lot of our audience is on the consoles so theyre not
experiencing that. So we have talked to Microsoft and Sony; how do we
There are still a lot of issues to solve with…
because these arent instances like a song or a car you know, you could

still… we have not solved — even on paper yet — how to handle
security; how do we handle not messing up your saved games and things
So its not going to be solved for the games release…”
Finally he discussed plans for DLC,
“We would like to do DLC; we dont have any
specific plans yet, but theyve been really successful and we like
making them. So right now I can say that wed like to do less DLC but
bigger ones — you know, more substantial. The Fallout 3 pace that we
did was very chaotic. We did a lot of them — we had two overlapping
groups — and we dont know what were going to make yet, but wed like
them to be closer to an expansion pack feel.”
