Well, it looks like Skyrim is due for its first expansion. Bethesda pulled the curtain back a few inches earlier today, posting a teaser image along with the promise of a summer release. The company says more details will be revealed at E3 (which is taking place on June 5-7).
There's just one teeny little kink: the teaser announcement says, "Coming this summer to Xbox 360." It doesn't say, "Coming this summer to Xbox 360 and PC," or "Coming this summer to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC." That's a wee bit surprising, given that Skyrim saw a simultaneous cross-platform launch last November. Besides, Bethesda has been fostering a PC mod community since February, when it released the game's mod tools with full Steam Workshop integration.
Here's hoping this only means we'll see a slightly later release than Xbox 360 owners. I'd hate to miss out on some fresh Skyrim content... and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
