    Skyrim DLC evidence found? Snow elves, crossbows, and more?

    posted by Galahaut Game News
    Update: Bethesda has announced that the first DLC is in fact named Dawnguard ("known" for some time) and that more information will be revealed at E3. Dawnguard and the second DLC will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 for 30 days.

    Bethesda forum user Raestloz seems to have found evidence of the upcoming first Skyrim DLC. While looking through the 1.5.26 patch files, he found a number of additions explicitly named with "DLC01." Another user, Karellan, has listed out the individual files:

    Snow Elves have been mentioned in earlier games (in Morrowind's Bloodmoon expansion, for example) and are now known to be the Falmer. The book Fall of the Snow Prince also has some information that may be relevant.

    Meanwhile, Pete Hines recently tweeted that additional Skyrim DLC info might come "next week" (maybe). Let the speculation begin.
