The next downloadable add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim might be called Dragonborn and allows players to ride dragons, at least according to files uncovered by fans in the latest update for the game.
Skyrim received a beta version of patch 1.8 on the PC earlier today and members of the Bethesda forums
immediately started rummaging through its files to see if there were any surprises.
Their search wasn’t in vain, as they quickly found mentions to the next add-on for Skyrim, sometimes referred to as DLC2 or Dragonborn.
According to the files brought by the DLC, animations for riding dragons have been added to the game, as well as new types of armors, like Bonemold, Chitin, Nordic, or Stalhrim.
What’s more, new quest markers for certain locations found in Morrowind, which is the neighboring continent of Skyrim and the actual setting of the third Elder Scrolls title, are also included. According to them, players might soon visit Solstheim, Telvanni, Castle Karstaag, Raven Rock, and Miraak Temple.
Bethesda’s parent company, Zenimax, trademarked the world Dragonborn earlier this year, so it’s possible that this is the title of the next DLC for Skyrim, judging by previous add-ons like Dawnguard
