Skyrim Dragonborn DLC specifics pre-release

We have just under two weeks to go until the highly anticipated release of Dragonborn, the third DLC expansion pack for Skyrim. PC players are still angry that there’s no sign of a release for them, or PS3 users for that matter with still complete silence from Bethesda over the missing PS3 Dawnguard DLC. Dragonborn is coming though on December 4 and it will be Xbox 360 users who will have the chance to play it exclusively before everyone else.

Unlike Hearthfire which was dubbed a ‘smaller’ expansion pack, Dragonborn is going to be a much larger affair and similar in size to the Dawnguard content which was also fairly substantial in size – but still nothing compared to the Shivering Isle days in Oblivion.

We want to go back to the main reveal trailer now for Dragonborn, as there’s some excellent analysis available to those who haven’t watched one of IGN’s Rewind Theater videos. They have picked the entire Dragonborn trailer apart and given us an insight into potential storylines that may unfold and any hidden features that are note worthy – remember, Bethesda hasn’t given out any additional details on Dragonborn other than the trailer, so it is well worth a watch if you are pumped up for its release.

As most of you have gathered now, the content is going to allow you to go in search of the first Dragonborn, and ultimately find and try to defeat him – the very cool looking guy in the helmet, who can be seen at 9.45 in the video below. IGN suggests that the Dragonborn villain will have access to some of the same powers that your character does and he’ll be able to use Dragon Shouts against you – setting up a very interesting battle indeed and finally a boss which may provide a challenge for your character.

They also suggest that players will be granted a new type of ‘spectral armor’, which can be seen at 3.50 in the video. We hear how this may end up as the Bonemold armor, an armor that Morrowind players should be familiar with and great news if Bethesda really is planning to give all Dragonborn buyers some new high level armor to play around with.

Watch the video in full below to see glimpses of a blue dragon and more analysis on who the Dragonborn villain at the end could be. With less than two weeks to go, have you finally managed to decipher the whole trailer and work out the storyline for yourself? The question that we want to know is – do you think it is worth another $20 after what you see in the trailer?
