It’s been nearly a year since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released to universal acclaim, and Bethesda has kept the game alive through the Dawnguard and Hearthfire downloadable content (DLC) packs. This is in addition to the PC modding community’s tweaks and overhauls. It seems that Skyrim, like Oblivion before it, will almost certainly be played for years to come.
Today, Bethesda released the first preview trailer for the third Skyrim DLC, Dragonborn. Rumors in the past few weeks had held that the new content would be taking players back to the province of Morrowind, the setting of The Elder Scrolls III, and include dragon mounts. It turns out that the rumors might very well be true true, as images of giant mushrooms can be seen during the video, and Dovahkiin can clearly be seen mounting a dragon at around the 50-second mark.
Dragonborn will be released for Xbox 360 first, on December 4 for 1600 Microsoft Points. The PC version will undoubtedly follow soon after. Sadly, the PlayStation 3 version of Dragonborn may never appear, as neither of the previous two Skyrim DLCs has yet been released for that console.
