Dragonborn is your birthright in Skyrim and now you get to explore that heritage and face the first Dragonborn in the latest Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC.
We know quite a bit about the new DLC that is set to hit for Xbox on December 4, 2012. To jump right to the screenshots, check out the Dragonborn image gallery at the end of this article.
Release date: December 4, 2012
Cost: 1600 Microsoft Points or $20
Platforms: Xbox only on release date. PC available early 2013.
On the island of Solstheim, off the coast of Morrowind, the adventure continues. The first Dragonborn seeks to resurrect himself and Bethesda has given some insight to that character with descriptions expressing he ‘devoured’ dragons. You’ll face off against the first Dragonborn in an effort to become synonymous with the title you bear. The official trailer shows a good deal of battle and combat scenarios which indicates a full action loaded DLC.
Skills / Gear
There is plenty of new bounty to be had in the Dragonborn DLC. Beyond the exploration of new towns like Raven Rock and characters such as Dark Elven settlers, there are other things that add to your character’s power.
Bethesda has indicated new shouts with one such shout named Dragon Aspect which allows a character to harness the power of a dragon. As to what other shouts might be available, we’ll have to wait and see.
The Daedra play what looks like a significant roll in Dragonborn. Such interaction will yield new powers and skill tree options to let players expand their character’s abilities.
Announced are new armor in the form of Bonemold and Chitin as well as new Stalhrim weapons. Expected are an increased amount of random Daedra hearts used in the creation of Daedric armor.
