After the debut trailer went live last week, Skyrim's latest expansion has revealed more its secrets in some new screenshots. Dragonborn will take players to the frozen island of Solstheim (which many of us will remember from Morrowind: Bloodmoon), empowering them with new shouts, weapons, armour and mounts as they take on the first Dovakiin.
With Rieklings and Netch making a welcome return, amongst other new enemies, we hope that Dragonborn will evoke some of the more alien and unpredictable design elements that made Morrowind such a unique RPG experience.
Before we get stuck into the juicy screens, Bethesda has provided the following tidbits regarding what to expect from Skyrim: Dragonborn.
- 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.
Dragonborn is set to launch on Xbox Live from December 4th, costing 1600 Microsoft Points. It's almost certainly another timed Xbox 360 exclusive.
