Sick of Skyrim yet? Hopefully not, because Bethesda is about to unleash its latest slice of downloadable content for the game—and you can already pre-purchase it on Steam. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn will set you back $19.99 and is set to unlock on February 5. If I'm reading the countdown right, the unlock time is 2:00 PM Eastern or 1:00 PM Central.
In Dragonborn, players will venture beyond Skyrim and travel to Solstheim, an island just off the coast of Morrowind. (Here's a map for your reference.) The place is apparently full of Dark Elves and some native Nords called the Skaal—not to mention "new dungeons, creatures, weapons, and more." Bethesda also promises new shouts that will let you "bend the will of your enemies and even tame dragons." Oh, and judging by the screenshots, the Dark Lord Cthulhu himself will make an appearance... unless I'm misinterpreting one of Bethesda's character designs.
Anyway, considering the add-on costs a third of the full game's price, I hope there's a decent number of gameplay hours packed in there. At the very least, though, this ought to be more exciting than the Hearthfire DLC.
