Skyrim Dragonborn Screenshots and Info Revealed

Solstheim is one of many new locations players will discover in Dragonborn.

Bethesda has officially released some new screenshots as well as a handful of exciting info on their latest DLC expansion, Dragonborn. While it had been hinted at earlier on that players would be able to ride dragons, the new information reveals the DLC to be so much more than that.

Dragonborn will see players arriving at the isle of Solstheim, which is in the fan favorite land of Morrowind. Morrowind was one of the largest open world areas, introduced in The Elder Scrolls III back on the original Xbox. With large fungal plant life and swamps aplenty, it featured a much more unique landscape than that of Skyrim. Bethesda has confirmed the inclusion of new towns, dungeons and quests, as well as a landscape consisting mostly of ash wastes and glacial valleys. Morrowind definitely holds a much darker tone than the Skyrim setting players have grown used to.

The story will revolve around the search for the first Dragonborn, whom will play the main antagonist of the DLC. Dark elves and the native Skaal will also play main roles as you search through Morrowind for the freshly risen Dragonborn. The search will even take players into a Deadric realm where they can discover and harness a new mysterious dark power.

Dragonborn, which was officially announced last week, will also add more to the player’s arsenal of weapons and armor. Bonemold and Chitin armor sets as well as new Stahlrim weapons. With any new area must come a new form of enemy and Dragonborn has a few. Deadly creatures such as the Ash Spawn or the fearsome Rieklings will give you something new to shout at.

Riding Dragons

Yes…you can ride dragons.

Last, but certainly not least, is the ability to ride dragons. Taming a dragon will consist of calming them with a new Shout. Players will also unlock another Shout called Dragon Aspect that will allow them to deliver colossal blows as well as increase the effectiveness of all other Shouts.

Skyrim’s Dragonborn DLC is set to release Dec. 4 for Xbox 360 for 1600 Microsoft Points. There’s been no word on a PlayStation 3 or PC release date as of yet but Bethesda has recently confirmed that they nearly have the PS3 compatibility issues resolved.
