The Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim: Latest Bethesda Trademark Might be DLC
The parent company of the The Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim’s developer, Bethesda, has made a trademarks filing with the US Patent and Trademark office. By the looks of it, some game industry observers are saying the filed for trademark might be the name of a future DLC package for Skyrim. ZeniMax filed for the name “Dawnguard.”
Come to think of it, it does have a Skyrim tinge to it. Why? Skyrim features the city of Dawnstar. Skyrim players would probably remember this as city that gets you going on that multi-part museum/artifact retrieval quest. If this is indeed Skyrim-related, this bit of news is definitely good news for Skyrim fans. The key detail to consider about the trademark filing is that it apparently is intended for computer game software is downloadable. Some have interpreted that detail as screaming out “DLC” or something related to DLCs. If that’s the case, Dawnguard might just be the very first DLC for The Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim. It would be quite a beefy DLC if, as we reported earlier, Bethesda’s earlier statements about issuing beefy content packages actually pan out. Skyrim fans would definitely welcome the DLC since console fans are stuck with the game’s standard quest lines while lucky PC players can play user mods. A DLC would give Skyrim’s wide fan base, regardless of platform, rich new content to enjoy.
