We have some new details surrounding Bethesda’s next expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, called “Dragonborn.” Bethesda sent out a presser today to shed some light on what players can expect from the upcoming content, including some brand new screenshots that look, oh, so pretty.
Here’s the word on Dragonborn, straight from the horse’s mouth:
- Explore Beyond Skyrim- Leave the province of Skyrim and travel to the coastal island of Solstheim. Encounter the Dark Elven settlers of Raven Rock and the native Skaal, as you unravel the mystery of a Dragonborn’s return.
- Become the Ultimate Dragonborn- Harness the power of the Voice as you face off against the first Dragonborn. Wield new shouts and spells including Dragon Aspect – allowing you to summon the inner power of a dragon to deliver colossal blows and strengthen other shouts.
- New Powers- Discover dark powers as you journey into a new Daedric realm. Collect books of forbidden knowledge and choose new paths for your skills and abilities.
- New dungeons, creatures, weapons, and more- Suit up in Bonemold and Chitin armors and wield Stalhrim weapons as you navigate through a myriad of dungeons. Battle formidable foes like Ash Spawn, Rieklings, and more.
And lastly, here are those awesome screenshots (click each to enlarge). Oh, and one final thing, nothing is mentioned in the press release of being able to actually ride a dragon around. Maybe we jumped the gun on that bit. Consider it wishful thinking until Bethesda either confirms or denies the existence of dragon riding.
