Fans of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim have reasons to be excited today, as this is the day the new Dragonborn DLC gets released for the Xbox 360.
Since the release of the game back in Nov. 11, 2011, the title has gotten two pieces of DLC content, Dawnguard and Hearthfire. While Hearthfire wasn't much to be excited about since the most intriguing thing about that piece of DLC, is the ability to build a house and have a family. Dawnguard on the other hand, was an all-new adventure where the player gets to fight Vampires, or choose to be on their side in the quest of turning the world into darkness.
With and Dawnguard and Hearthfire out of the way, here comes Dragonborn, a new quest for the player to attain. The DLC takes place on the island of Solstheim, a place that is off the coast of Morrowind. Sotstheim was once ruled over by a former Dragon Priest who rebelled against the Dragons. He was also the first Dragonborn. Like the Dragons, this Dragon Priest seeks to return, though it is not yet clear what his intentions are.
Narrative from the trailer:
"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.
You didn't think that you were the only one?
He was the first.
The new Dragonborn DLC, which is looking to be the final piece of major content for The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, is available today only for the Xbox 360. The DLC will cost 1600 Microsoft points or $20, so expect plenty of content to go with the ones already available.
PC players should expect to get the Dragonborn DLC in January of 2013. As for PlayStation 3 gamers, we'll just have to wait and see.
