Skyrim DLC lets players FLY DRAGONS

Bethesda unveils 'Dragonborn'

Bethesda has unveiled its latest DLC pack for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. As well as the introduction of a fresh villain, gamers will be able to fly on the back of a dragon.

Insert Bill & Ted sample: "Exccellllent."

While full details of the Dragonborn DLC have yet to surface, this week's trailer offers a glimpse of what Bethesda has in store.

This includes new enemies, areas to explore and, of course, the ability to pilot the various fire-breathing reptiles that menace the skies of Nirn.

Let's hope these dragons fly the right direction this time.

Players will see a return to the island of Solstheim too, the focus of Bethesda's Bloodmoon DLC expansion for 2002's Morrowind.

As far as we can tell, the new plot is centralised around the first ever 'Dragonborn' character that returns to actively harvest powers from the reptiles for his own gain, similar to how Sylar treats other characters in NBC's Heroes.

Your task is to obviously stop him. Check out the trailer below.

The Xbox 360 version of Dragonborn is available from 4 December for 1600 MSP.

Versions for PC and PS3 have yet to be revealed, although after the failed-attempt to bring Skyrim's last DLC - Dawnguard - to those on Sony consoles, I wouldn't hold your breath for the latter.
