After The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC’s Dawnguard, Hearthfire & Dragonborn we may get a 4th DLC titled Redguard, if recent findings from OXM Magazine are to be believed. Naturally this will revolve around the most talented warriors in all of Tamriel, the Redguards of Hammerfell.
To quote the magazine: “Files hidden away in the most recent patch for Skyrim included dialogue and animation files for the Snow Elf Prince, as well as animation files for crossbows.
The Snow Elves previously populated Skyrim before the Nords fought them out, and the surviving Elves eventually turned into the underground Falmer race. Though Bethesda hasn’t yet commented on the potential DLC, the company’s VP of PR Pete Hines said on Twitter he hopes to have more news about Skyrim downloadable content next week.” Although he did add via Twitter that “Sorry, I don’t comment on every rumor that comes up.”
Bethesda’s parent company Zenimax has recently renewed a trademark for the term “Redguard” in the context of “downloadable computer game software offered via the internet and wireless devices”. Originally done so in March 2011, then renewed in August 2012, and will be up for renewal again in February 2013. But it’s unclear what it’ll be about since the company hasn’t filed a Statement of Use yet.
The Redguards have been described as “descended from a long line of warriors and mystic seers. Legend has it that Redguards are innately more proficient with the use of weaponry than any other race. They are excellent in all arts concerning blade and shield.”
We now take a trip back to 1998 when Bethesda released The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard.
