New Skyrim DLC Incoming? Monday Holds the Answer
The above image found its way in the Tweetsphere (if we’re not calling it that, we’re wasting our time) courtesy of the folks at Bethesda alongside a brief message: “Full Trailer on 11/5.”
Earlier this month, a Eurogamer forum user was rifling around through Skyrim’s 1.8 patch source code and dug up a handful of interesting files pertaining to possible upcoming DLC content. The data entitled the content “Dragonborn” which – wouldn'tcha knowit? – is also a name Bethesda Softworks felt inclined to trademark recently.
Now, this could all be one big coincidence and Bethesda could be teasing something else entirely, but that sort of thinking is exactly how you blue-ball a perfect fangasm into submission. Go ahead, fuel the dungeon crawling beast within and jump to the only happy conclusion: more Skyrim DLC on the way!
‘Course, last time we speculated on (and got overly excited for) prospective Skyrim DLC, that resulted in something akin to a medieval version of This Old House. Actually, might wanna dial back that fangasm until Monday rolls around.
UPDATE: Well, Monday rolled around and this rumor finds itself certifiable fact. Bethesda is releasing Dragonborn, a major DLC expansion centered on the first Dovahkiin and seemingly the lost art of riding goddamned dragons, for Xbox Live on December 4th, pricing in at 1200 Moon Points. Skyrim has seen timed exclusive content on the Xbox before, so as such, no official statement on either a PC or PS3 release date has been announced (let alone whether or not the PS3 will remain the content-less odd man out once again).
