New Skyrim "Dragonborn" DLC

So Dawn Guard and Hearthfire have been out for a few months now with both adding several hours more Skyrim goodness to my spare time. However, due to my excessive playing and no Elder Scrolls game for at least another four years (which I will hate waiting for) DLC is a very good idea for fans. I, as a fan, would pay any amount of money to play more of Skyrim or have more varieties and differences from each of my characters. Enter Dragonborn DLC...

The main idea for this DLC is a hint from Bethesda's file names that you might be able to MOUNT DRAGONS. That's right; mount dragons. Some have said that this would kill the game as the story would not make much sense anymore but just imagine firing spells/arrows off your massive dragon as you torpedo towards an enemy. It might not make much sense anymore but it does sound pretty awesome.

Excitement for past Elder Scrolls' fans comes the idea that there are quest markers put in place that feature places in Morrowind, so a tour back to places like Solstheim, Telvanni, Castle Karstaag, Raven Rock and Miraak Temple could be on the cards. Personally, I'd like to visit Morrowind due to my lack of experience in the region which I would like to reconcile by spending several real-time days there. There's also Morrowind armour being available which would spice up dressing up characters a bit more and bring back some nostalgia for those that remember such things.

I'm certainly looking forward to the Dragonborn DLC and looking at the hints, it could be the best DLC for Skyrim yet. The price tag is still unconfirmed but I wouldn't be surprised if it was 1200-1600 MSP which can be seen as quite steep by a lot of people including me. Time will tell whether it will be worth buying but, as always, I'll be giving this blog updates on how the DLC will eventually pan out. Here's hoping it will be as good as it looks!
