Skyrim: Is Bethesda Making a Zombie-Themed DLC Called Hearthfire?

GR - "Skyrim appears to be working on a new DLC called Hearthfire. Let's take a look at how it pertains to zombies." (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

What would be the point in that...theres already "Zombies" in the game, in fact they are the enemies you face the most...the Draugr.

Shame there wasn't any variety in the enemies, I mean it was a shame there wasn't any normal Zombies like there was in Oblivion since battling the Draugr got really boring once you had played on it enough.

I mean the whole Halloween Zombie DLC sounds lame, I mean we already had vampires why don't they give us something else instead of fighting the undead. We want something like Shivering Isles.

Besides I hope they will give us smaller DLCs like they did in the last game. Unique houses for Mages, Thieves and Warriors...or maybe something like the Orrery DLC or the new spell tombs.

Come on Bethesda, if this is true then I will be very dissapointed. I mean Dawguard didn't really add that much in terms of content, it just felt like stuff which should of already been in the game, for example Dragon weapons.

Probably they are, but only for Xbox and PC.

Not to mention there's all ready tons of zombie mods for it.

I'd be interesting if it was something that was Draugr. Vampires were in Skyrim before Dawnguard came out so I don't see how zombies already being there would effect it. Me personally I want something like Shivering Isles, that brings you to the Oblivion realm, just to have some breathing room from Skyrim.

Bethesda also said that they weren't going to focus on small dlc like Oblivion but focus on huge expansions ranging from Operation Anchorage to Shivering Isles.
user5467007  +   793d ago
Yeah but vampires didn't pop up in every single missions. Every time you went into a cave or dungon you mostly battled Draugr....and you went instead dungeons A LOT.

"Bethesda also said that they weren't going to focus on small dlc like Oblivion but focus on huge expansions ranging from Operation Anchorage to Shivering Isles."

Well if they think Dawnguard matched up to Shivering Isles then they were sadly mistaken

Notice how it ranges from operation anchorage being small to shivering isles being big, that gives them room to work with all their expansions. Dawnguard isn't the size of shivering isles however one that they create may be.

You battle draugr until you are tough enough to fight vampires. necromancers, and eventually those blind subterranean flamer elves with the poisoned blades. Personally I'm surprised that Skyrim has no goblins or Reiklings to fight.

What I think betheseda have done is split the people working on skyrim into two teams. One small and one large. The small one is working on content like dawnguard and whatever this next dlc is. While the other is working on larger dlc, they could possibly even be working on spreading the game out past the borders of skyrim. Everyone knows the map extends through most of cyrodiil and morrowind, plus they have the passes/ entrance gates to those areas. Which they did say was just for immersion but thats just the kind of thing a developer would say to keep everything hush hush before blowing the doors off with a world expanding dlc. Plus each game previous to this had a dlc that added land mass and skyrim doesn't have any islands near it really so they pretty much have to go into the other lands.

Zombies is quickly becoming the go-to thing for lazy developers trying to cash-in on dlc. What the hell is so appealing about a bunch of brain dead losers that walk slower then the average granny? Zombies are okay, but not game-changing enough to warrant a purchase. At best, Zombie dlc that are not on disc should be free like Red Dead Revolver.

Developers: Oh look, we added slower, dumber enemies, and nothing else is new so please pay us!
Average moron from this gaming generation: Wow its zombies with no viable improvement or variation to the core gameplay, day one purchase!

Sick of these lazy developers.

I'd love to have DLC in a 'Land of the Giants' or something like that, where the Giants ranged in size from those in the regular game, to absolutely massive. But hey, I'm sure there will be lots of different DLC add-ons for this game. Dawnguard is better than decent, and while I'll likely skip the Draugr one, I'm sure there will be something else that appeals to me sooner or later. For now I'm really enjoying my Dragon Bone sword and arrows. :D
toxic-inferno  +   793d ago
Is Dawnguard out on PS3 yet? I really haven't heard much about it, and my copy of Skyrim is gathering dust...
IG-88  +   793d ago
not yet
neonlight45  +   793d ago
I heard it was coming out next gen
Ser  +   793d ago
Nope. Which is exactly why they can stick that DLC where the sun doesn't shine.

I can't believe people are still doing "timed DLC." Have we not evolved past this nonsense yet?
Mottsy  +   793d ago
@ Drak, if by nonsense you mean money then no I don't believe we have evolved past that yet
blue_flowers  +   793d ago
skyrim was great at first, then got stale. i'll just look forward to another great fallout game instead. even though that probably wont be until next gen, i can wait.
TheMasterShake  +   793d ago
fallout is way been better than elder scrolls imo.

Elder scrolls is Fantasy, Fallout is more Sci-Fi so I'm sure there will be different opinions.
greatcrusader44  +   793d ago
They focused too much on dungeons with no good loot, after you did all the main storylines (with the civil war one being the only one with variations for replayability) there just wasnt anything too interesting to do when you already got best weapons and armor. Should have had more random interesting sidequests in the cities like the earlier installments, eliminate daedric quests(which were much rewarding to get in oblivion/morriwind, think ive only gotten one in each) and there aren't any notable sidequests.
blue_flowers  +   793d ago
thats what im saying man. also i dont like how big the map was for how sparsely it was populated. Why not give us a smaller map with more detailed or bigger towns? same with dungeons, i didn't need a 100 different dungeons, how about half that with more interesting setups!
glennco  +   793d ago
it started to feel like a real job
-Gespenst-  +   793d ago
I want some meatier DLC, like Shivering Isles. I'm not bothered getting Dawngaurd for my PS3 version and the idea of this doesn't really appeal to me...

Also lol at "Skyrim appears to be working on.."
dubt72  +   793d ago
I want something to do with a pocket civilization of Dwemer far below the surface. There would be no limitations to size.
Xof  +   793d ago
God, I hope not. Their audience want's DLC that expands upon the MAP and the LORE.

We want to fight the Thalmor in Hammerfell. We want explore the post-apocalyptic ruin of Morrowwind.

We don't want DLC that dances around inside Skyrim with Zombies any more than we did with Vampires. Especially not with that $20 price tag.
LAWSON72  +   793d ago
I think they got to give ps3 players dawnguard first. And seriously betheseda I hope you got more imagination than adding a zombie dlc
pixelsword  +   792d ago
Didn't they get busted for using cookie-cutter plotlines, or was that bioware?

Big diff though if betheseda is going to use zombies.
OldSnakePS3  +   793d ago
give us ps3 users dawnguard first!!!!
and we want a discount for our troubles!!

Almost as exciting as vampires.....if true

nihonlight  +   792d ago
even the 1.7 patch screwed everyone. What a bunch of lazy money grabbers.
They don't care if it works or not.
claud3  +   792d ago
Does it matter, if you have beat dawnguard you want the next dlc
jagstatboy  +   792d ago
I love Skyrim to death, but if they never release Dawnguard for PS3, or if it's released at some long future date, I will never buy another Bethesda game again.
SuperStrokey1123  +   792d ago
What is the hold up on the PS3 version? It makes no sense.
Someonerandom  +   792d ago
C'mon, Bethesda, Dawnguard had plenty of Undead, how about a DLC featuring a Daedric Prince, like Shivering Isles.
SuperStrokey1123  +   792d ago
There is literally zero evidence for it to be a zombie expansion...
Over726  +   792d ago
I want arena mode.
LAWSON72  +   791d ago
Like in oblivion if so that would be fn amazing

wasnt most the game daugr killing?
frankboy2012  +   792d ago
Talking about another dlc they still aint released dawngaurd for ps3 piss take.
PhunnyJesta  +   792d ago
I just want a dlc without another stupid transformation. Its just bad design, you cant go through menus, you cant pick up loot, and I get WEAKER when I am transformed because my 100 smithing and enchanting + buffs becomes useless. I loved all 215 hours I invested into skyrim but the transformations just astound me how bad they are.
Dead_by_Dawn  +   792d ago
This is straight up bullshit. First, they neglected ps3 users with patch 1.7, when everybody else had it. Second, dawnguard still hasn't been released on ps3 and its been almost two goddamn months since release. Its fuckin bullshit that they have MS ramming money up their ass just to hold it back. By the way I don't know if that's true or not, but with this wait I'm inclined to believe that its possible. It better be out soon or my copy of skyrim is being sold. Yeah I maybe one of the few saying this, but I'm sure others will follow when they get fed up. Bethesda sucks at programming for ps3, you would of thought after 6 years they would of learned. Obviously not.
TronEOL  +   792d ago
If they release it in September for the Xbox in order to get that timed exclusive BS out of the way, I probably wouldn't mind buying this.

But only because it'd be fun to play a Halloween themed piece of DLC ON Halloween. If they go and only allow Xbox users to get it on Halloween, then I'll avoid this developer like the plague. I'm not going to play Halloween themed DLC in November. It just won't make any sense and will lack any of the appeal I currently have for it.

Otherwise, PC modding community, get on this Halloween themed mod idea and create something amazing.
