Details for the Dragonborn DLC pack for PlayStation 3 and PC Skyrim players have not yet been announced yet, but if you’re on the Xbox 360, you’ll be able to purchase the new content December 4 for the price of 1,600 MS Points (S$35.20).
The third downloadable add-on for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, in Dragonborn players will travel to and visit the Dark Elves’ homeland of Morrowind – yes, the same Morrowind as Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind – in a quest to take down a rival Dragonborn who’s been collecting dragon souls (after slaying them) for a malicious plot.
This DLC pack will also introduce a number of new enemies to fight, and new loot to hoard – including a draconic armour set.
Today’s announcment of Dragonborn’s pricing and availability for Xbox 360 players – and only them – strikes many as a little strange. Under a deal that developer Bethesda made with Microsoft, the first two pieces of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC must be made available to X360 owners at least 30 days before they are available on other platforms… but it was supposed to be for the first two: Dawnguard and Hearthfire.
Dragonborn is the third DLC pack, but given that Bethesda did not announce a date for PC users today, could they be counting Dragonborn as the second piece under their deal with Microsoft, since the scale of Hearthfire – a 400-MS-point that let players buy land, build a house and raise a family – isn’t quite on the same level as Dawnguard and Hearthfire?
If that’s the case, then PC Skyrim players can probably expect to see the new content sometime in January 2013. As for PS3 users, well, Bethesda is still working on getting Dawnguard and Hearthfire to you, so there’s no rush!
