    Many Skyrim fans weren't entirely pleased with the last expansion, Hearthfire. While it was great for the home decorating crowd, players wanting epic quests and monsters to slay were left wanting.

    Well, before you can finally put your character to rest and get on with other games, it seems like Bethesda may be swooping in with some brand new content. Files hidden in a recent patch seem to point towards a new expansion, titled "Dragonborn".

    According to the poster on Bethesda's forum who made this discovery...



    All of this information has yet to be confirmed, of course, so you might want to take it with a grain of salt.

    So, what do you think? Is this anything to shout about, or are you Fus Ro Done with the land of Skyrim?

    I still need to play Skyrim. But it seems like too much effort.

    Solsthiem? Wasnt that a location from Morrowind? Hmm, Telvanni was also often used term for a clan in Morrowind.

    I think its safe to say it takes place in Morrowind. Which means shitons of racism, slavery and over all dakr attitude :D

    On an island huh, so like Shivering isles. Maybe that will make all the "all dlc should be as good as shivering isles, no exceptions." crowd shut up. As for me, I look forward to it whatever it may turn out to be, more content is always good in my book.

    Interesting. A return to a well loved location with new, fancy graphics and gameplay. This DLC might just be a Morrowin-win for the fans.

    Bloodmoon was good I enjoyed it but Tribual was kinda a let down. Morrowind was OK but way overhyped in my opinion. Skyrim took the forumla of the last two games and made it the best. Which is why it's the best game in the series in my opinion. Shivering Isles was also excellant, you can't beat Sheogoroth.

    Heh, it'll be interesting to see the change in the land. It's the lore that keeps me in this game, a lot of people miss a ton of it only doing main quest and a handful of side missions.

    So far I can safely say that the DLC released has not been very interesting to me unlike Oblivion where I absolutely loved most of the DLC I can't really say the same for Skyrim.

    No shit. I don't know why they're still coming out with new DLC when they can't even get the DLC on the PS3 to work. They should be putting all their resources to giving the PS3 users the same experience, but no.

    And all honesty, lets just say hypothetically they do get the DLC to work on the PS3, it better not be charged at full price. It better be discounted, or have something extra for PS3 users and say "you know what, hey, we're sorry you had to wait this long. The blame is all on us. And to make it up to you..."

    Slostheim eh? Sounds like they won't have to make much new art assets (Or at least outside assets (Other then architecture) ). In Bloodmoon, it was just an island off of the coast of Vvardenfell (Of the coast of Morrowind) that was said to be similar to Skyrim.

    I think it's time for you to move over to pc gaming, at least for skyrim anyway.

    You must not have liked the house DLC for Oblivion then. This is a common practice, have a few expansions slated, then release smaller DLCs in between the expansions. Dawnguard was a Knights of the Nine sized expansion, and Hearthfire was a dungeon sized expansion [small]. This one will likely be either another DG sized one, or it will be Shivering Isle sized, and I hope it's the latter.

    This expansion is looking pretty big. An entire island to explore? Yes, please. Perhaps this will revolve are the ancient Dwemer, maybe they'll return to the plane of Mundus. Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself, but I'm getting excited all over again. Perhaps I'll put another 500 hours into Skyrim on top of the 1500+ I already have.

    EDIT: If you guys don't get Skyrim DLC on the PS3 by the year, don't count on it at all.

    Skyrim armour mods says hi
    It's the other way around for me, I didn't really like Oblivion DLC all that much, Skyrim is just a superior experience IMHO. The 2nd DLC was disappointing, but something for the real role-players.

    I know, I have tens of mods, I just like to keep gameplay mods to a minimum... I'm not confortable with new armors, mobs power level is already stupid right now (too weak or too strong) :/

    I still dunno why magic users instant kill me even if I'm level 50...

    Oh, I thought you meant you just got tired of the way your armour looks.
    I fully agree by the new armours/weapons thing btw, they are very often overpowered. I can't comment on the magic user thingy, it's been really too long (aprox 10 months) since I last touched Skyrim :)
