Dragonborn: New Skyrim DLC coming in December
New area, new bad guy and dragon riding.
Bethesda announced Skyrim's newest expansion pack, Dragonborn, will come December 4 for Xbox 360, with the PC version to presumably follow once the 360's 30 day exclusivity expire. It will cost 1600 Microsoft Points, or $20 in regular person money. Unfortunately, there are no announced plans for a PS3 version due to the game's longstanding issues on the console.
The expansion will take players to Solstheim, which is northeast of Skyrim. Longtime Elder Scrolls fans will recognize the land of giant mushrooms from the series' previous entry Morrowind.
The trailer (which can be found below) reveals a few details: the original Dragonborn is still alive, kicking and eating dragons, and you need to put a stop to him. The trailer also shows a bit of the fungal scenery, and most exciting, the Dragonborn (you, not the ancient one) RIDING ON DRAGONS. No word on whether this is contextual or whether you can pull a Jake Sully and tame the biggest and baddest dragons.
Expect new loot as well (the original Dragonborn's armor looks pretty cool...).
Will any of you g1s take to the skies in December or January? Let us know in the comments!
