Skyrim: Dragons or Multiplayer (Pick One)
Posted by DukeSkath on Wednesday, 6th April, 2011
Cheers to IGN for this interview with Skyrim developer Todd Howard. There’s some good stuff here, about the conversation system (no more zooming in on drab faces), travel mechanics (fast and otherwise), and auto-leveling (short answer: it’s a mixed bag).
On page two, he discusses the absence of multiplayer, and it sorta sounds like he’s been listening to our podcast!
The two most requested features we get are dragons and multiplayer. We got one of them this time! We always look into multiplayer, put lots of ideas on the whiteboard, and it always loses. It’s not that we don’t like it. I can think of ways it would be a lot of fun, but at the end of the day, that dev time is going to take away from doing the best single player game we can, and that’s where our hearts are.
