Skyrim Patch Files Suggest Snow Elf, Crossbows In DLC

Elder Scrolls: Skyrim has already been out nearly 5 months and yet there’s still no DLC to speak of. That’s probably for the best, as you probably haven’t finished it yet. BAZINGA. But seriously, it’s been a while, but it looks indeed like the first DLC packet is coming. An enterprising Bethesda forums member has taken a closer look at the Patch 1.5.26 update files; scanning the files for valid strings, and he discovered several files with very revealing titles. Some examples:

Animations\[b]DLC01\Chair_SnowElfPrinceDialogueA.HKX[/b]

[b]Animations\DLC01\Paired_VampFeedBack.hkx

Animations\CrossBow_Release.hkx

Animations\DLC01\RF_GuardedToOpen.hkx

You’ll notice that aside from the crossbow files, each contains DLC01. This would seem to be a slam dunk case for their appearance in DLC and for that DLC being soon, if not imminent. The forum member surmises that the DLC contains Snow elves, a Snow Elf Prince, Crossbows, and New vampire feeding animations. Also, something prefixed ‘RF’, but no one seems to know what that is. Fortunately, it looks like we are getting closer to an announcement; Bethesda is hinting the official reveal is happening next week.
