    I don't think including all that extra landmass is for DLC purposes. I haven't even seen anything verifying the veracity of the article that claimed it was all there and accessible through the noclip command.

    Even if it is, I think it hints at groundwork laid down for a TES MMO instead.

    Doubt it's anything so elaborate, it's just part of the skybox for when you're atop the mountain/meridia quest.

    How was the game not locked to steam beforehand?

    Oops, completely forgot that Bethesda switched to steam only. Some money saved at least.

    Or you know, the skybox...

  12. It was always there, it wasn't brought in in the new patch, and it is so you can go up a mountain in Skyrim and see LOD in the distance instead of just blankness. Try it. Go to the far south-east of Skyrim, past Riften, and you'll see a valley through the mountains with a gate at the end of it. Through that gate you can see Red Mountain and Vvardenfell.

    um, you could walk to Elsweyr, Hammerfell, Skyrim, Argonia or Morrowind in Oblivion too, if you disabled the borders.

    although they are very compressed and empty landscapes, and if you venture far enough (around where Almalexia shoudl be) you fell thorugh the ground and in to the void.

    There's a Youtube video of what is contained:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlbA2qiXsf0

    It's basically High Rock, most of Hammerfell, Cyrodiil, the western half of Morrowind (half of Vvardenfell), plus a few other bits and pieces. Of course, all is very rudimentary with less detail the further out you go.

    The rumor of DLC use came from the fact that Skyrim contains a road to an elaborate gate to Morrowind.

    Got it. My mistake. The skybox explanation makes the most sense.

    So if I have Morrowind and oblivion installed can I cross over? That would be neat.
