Earlier this morning, we talked up Bethesda teasing us with hints of an upcoming DLC, and what you see above is the real deal – the latest Dragonborn DLC which will be part of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Dragonborn will see Elder Scrolls faithful return to the island of Solstheim, where it first made its debut in The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon. Dragonborn’s premise is simple – it concerns the very first Dragonborn. What you see is a mask to accompany this rather modest introduction, “He was once one of them, the Dragon Priest. He ruled here in their name, ruled over Solstheim, but he did not serve the dragons — he devoured them. And like them he seeks to return.”
The trailer shows off a range of new environments, enemies, as well as the much rumored ability (finally) mount a dragon as your ride. Solstheim will be very different from the other worlds in Skyrim, where you might get creeped out with Cthulhu-like monsters and demonic beings crawling all over the place.
Dragonborn seems destined to be a timed Xbox 360 exclusive, similar to its previous DLC, where it is tipped to arrive on Xbox Live this coming December 4th for 1600 MSP (the equivalent of $20). It should arrive on the PC a month after that, and PS3 fans might consider picking up the Xbox 360 for themselves this Christmas.
