Though it won't release until December 4th, and even then only for Xbox 360, Bethesda Game Studios is well aware that folks are eagerly awaiting the coming DLC for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Titled Dragonborn, Skyrim's newest outing will see players visit a setting previously explored in Morrowind: Solstheim. It's there that players will face the very first Dragonborn. If that doesn't sound exciting enough, hit the jump for a series of luscious screenshots for the upcoming DLC.

Other than the trailer and name, not much is known about the next expansion for Bethesda Game Studios' The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Titled Dragonborn, and available December 4th on Xbox 360, the DLC's announcement seems to confirm pretty much every rumor out there: Solstheim is definitely the setting, and riding dragons has apparently made it in. Whether this is something that can be controlled on the regular or features during a scripted sequence only is currently unknown, but it sure looks excellent. Hit the jump for the trailer.
Good news, fans of role-playing games everywhere! Bethesda Game Studios has announced the second expansion coming to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- and it is called Hearthfire. The newest expansion centers on building a home, upgrading said home, and all the trappings of domesticity. If this sounds suspiciously like they're bolting The Sims onto Skyrim, that's because it looks like they actually are bolting The Sims onto Skyrim. Those lucky Xbox 360 players will get to start building their own gardens on September 4th.
According to Eurogamer Denmark, Bethesda is hard at work developing The Elder Scrolls V, which is said to be a direct sequel to the 2006 RPG masterpiece, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
Eurogamer asked the author of the Eurogamer Denmark article, Kristian West, to translate the article:
This source not only confirmed that the game is in current production, but also spoke briefly about the content - with fantasy-sounding phrases like Dragon Lord, something with The Blades - and that voice acting for the characters in the game is currently happening in the weeks to follow. The same source confirmed, with official game documents in hand, that this will be the chronological sequel to what happened in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which is the latest game in the now 16-years-old Elder Scrolls saga and by itself one of the better RPGs for PC and consoles. The sequel to Oblivion is coming, we can hereby confirm without hesitation. It's been a while since 2006, hasn't it?
