Rumour: Snow Elves to Feature in New Skyrim DLC

Gamers are an intelligent bunch. When they’re not hunting for domain name registrations or poring over employee CVs, they’re picking apart game code to find references to future content.

That’s exactly what one devoted Bethesda forum poster did with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s most recent patch — and he made some interesting discoveries along the way. New code included with the update makes several references to Snow Elves, located in a folder called “DLC01”. We don’t think we need to explain what that might pertain to.

The directory also includes data for several new crossbows. Unfortunately, when questioned, Bethesda offered a stock response. “Snow comment,” and all that.

DLC involving snow elves sounds cool. I'd like to delve more into their origins and what conspired to turn them into the blind goblin things they are now. It would be even cooler if they added the snow elves as a new race.

Crossbows are a plus too, but what I really want to see is spears. I find them especially elegant as a weapon and want my dark elf to wield one, heh.

Next DLC needs to either bring old areas like Cyrodil into the game or delve deeper into the Dwemer. They have all these ruins scattered around Skyrim but there's not a lot of info on them.

The DLC's going to take awhile to get anywhere I think, especially on PS3 and PC, because Xbox has that 1 month exclusive deal with Bethesda.
