Bethesda's Todd Howard Shows Off Game Jam Video for Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has just had the Creation Kit launch the other day, and with that comes a whole new wave of mods. The Creation Kit enables prospective modders to change or add whatever they want to Skyrim, and the number of mods on the Steam Workshop for Skyrim is growing as fast as people can hit Submit. The DICE 2012 Summit started yesterday in Las Vegas, and Bethesda's Todd Howard delivered a keynote speech and showed a video of different creations done by his team. Now, all of the items shown in the Game Jam video are not guaranteed to become DLC for Skyrim, but it does show the potential the Creation Kit has to offer.

The addition of spears to Skyrim would not be a huge leap, considering Fallout: New Vegas had them, nor would the kill cams for magic and arrow attacks or dark dungeons. Then you get to some ideas that would take a little more work, like the skill tree for werewolves, advanced home building, and of course, dragon mounts. Finally, we come to the pièce de résistance in the form of giant mudcrabs. Mudcrabs have been the subject of mods before, like turning them into everyone's favorite lobster from a certain TV show set in the future, but this time the mudcrabs have taken on truly epic proportions. Hopefully some of these mods shown off do make their way to Skyrim, as I think it would be interesting to build a home from scratch within the game or expand the lycanthropy aspect.

I'd like to see the vampire lord dlc, that would be cool, allthough I'm already a werewolf; heck with the tree. the vamps and nead more structure, and that would do it= some missions leading up to a plot, or an underworld theme vampV.S.werewolf
