Rumor: Skyrim’s next DLC will focus on Redguards

Published

Like a witch stirring her cauldron, Bethesda appear to be once again cooking up something ambitious. If these recent rumors hold true, then it’s probably another DLC expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, this time focusing on the iconic Redguards.

The folks at Official Xbox Magazine UK have done some digging and found that Zenimax, the firm who owns Bethesda, has trademarked Redguard all the way back in March 2011 under the category “downloadable computer game software offered via the internet and wireless devices.”

They’ve been repeatedly renewing this trademark since then, with the most recent renewal occurring in August 2012. It’ll expire in February of this year unless they renew it again, which is likely.

If this is the next, perhaps final, DLC for Skyrim, then it makes sense. The Redguards live in Hammerfell, which happens to border Skyrim and would therefore make for an easy map extension.

However, some are saying that this could potentially be a plan for a next-gen Elder Scrolls title on PS4 and Xbox 720. Take that as you will.

If an entire Elder Scrolls installment based on the Redguards sounds a wee bit familiar, it’s because it kind of already happened. 1998 saw the release of the spinoff The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard for PC, a third-person action/adventure game that received mixed reviews but has become somewhat of a cult classic.

Stay tuned for more news and rumors regarding this next potential DLC.

RUMOR: Xbox One S All Digital Images, Release Details Leak Ahead of Official Unveiling

xbox one s all digital

Images of a discless Xbox One S have leaked online, confirming rumors from last year.

Winfuture.de revealed the pictures it acquired yesterday, as well the name Xbox One S All Digital, prices, and a launch date. Check out the pictures down below.

The console would allow users who are less oriented in the physical media space to take advantage of an all-digital device.

Some of the speculation regarding all-digital hardware pictures a cheaper, maybe even smaller model. However, yesterday’s leak suggests that, while the Xbox One S All Digital may come bundled with games, the price will stick at around USD$250 with no real change in physical appearance.

The only visual difference between the Xbox One S and the Xbox One S All Digital is the lack of a disc drive. Otherwise, the two slimmed down pieces of hardware are visually identical.

As well as a look at the console, the website says that an official reveal will come April 16 with a release following on May 7.

The pictures uncovered do not come from an official source, so holding off believing everything here is for the best. That said, a device such as this makes sense for Microsoft considering the Xbox Game Pass and the inevitability of a more digitally-inclined market.
