Rumor: New Skyrim DLC Found in Update, Brings Dragon Riding
By Ron Duwell on October 16, 2012 in Platform
File miners on Bethesda’s official forums have uncovered a handful of files in the latest Skyrim update that gives hints about Bethesda’s next DLC for the expansive RPG. Several files labeled “DLC2″ and “Dragonborn” have turned up, alluding to a potential new adventure for the Dragonborn warrior to undertake.
The DLC adds quest markers for areas throughout the map, including an exciting return to Morrowind, the setting of The Elder Scrolls III, and hints at several new armor types including Bonemold, Chitin, Nordic and Stalhrim.
Most importantly though, the files reveal animations for something labeled “DragonMounted,” most likely meaning that the Dragonborn will soon be riding the beasts he once killed through the skies of Skyrim. What this could mean or how this will effect the world of Skyrim has yet to be revealed by Bethesda, but quick transportation and aerial combat with opposing winged beasts is just a little too exciting.
If the files are to be believed, the Dragonborn will be able to cast magic and swing all forms of weapons from the backs of the winged scaly creatures. What exactly will he or she be fighting?
As mentioned, Bethesda has yet to comment on the find, so no official release date or price has been announced. Following with the typical release schedule, Dragonborn will most likely be available on Xbox 360 and PC to follow, with the PlayStation 3 release never happening.
We kid! We hope…
