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!
I am hoping this is the last of the expansion pack based DLC's, and hopefully they will only release a couple smaller DLC's. The reason I say this is because I am ready for Fallout 4. Perhaps I sound selfish, but I prefer Fallout over ES.
If I had Skyrim, I probably would be interested in getting this.
It's easily possible, he was the first of the priests to gain the power of the Thu'um cause the dragons granted such power, that as well normal mortals can learn a thu'um, Ulfric used it to kill the king and take over and the greybeards are normal mortals taught by Paarthunax who in which also taught the first mortal how to use the Thu'um.
Yay new Skyrim DLC can't wait....to not play it on my PS3. I'll just wait for a GOTY edition for PC....
Its been a long time morrowind... im so very glad to see you again.
And so begins the droning wait for the PC launch
ERMAHGERD!!!!! You actually have to fight the ORIGINAL Dragonborn? Sold.
A few things to note. 1) The original Dragonborn, who was evidently some sort of dragon priest (not sure how that is possible, since the dragon priests were regular mortals who, in return for worshipping the dragons, were rewarded with power) apparently died, and is attempting to 'return'. 2) I got the impression that he's not necessarily an enemy, like you could choose to take his side, or not. 3) The ability to ride dragons was shown in the Game Jam video released soon after Skyrim, so there shouldn't be any surprise there. I am pleased, though. This seems to be more worthy of a $20 investment than Dawnguard.
