Xbox Live will get “Skyrim” DLC before other platforms.


In keeping with tradition, Bethesda has announced that the first round of DLC content for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be available on Xbox Live before coming to other platforms.  The same strategy was employed for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3.  Here’s the official press release:

On November 11th, Bethesda Game Studios brings us the next installment in The Elder Scrolls franchise with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Xbox LIVE will be the first to bring players the experience of Skyrim’s add-on content in this revolutionized open-world fantasy epic where players can explore any way they choose.

The first two add-on content drops for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be releasing exclusively on Xbox 360, 30 days before it’s available anywhere else. If you’d like to be the first to break new ground in Skyrim, Xbox LIVE is the only destination that won’t keep you waiting.
