Right before Dragonborn's release on Xbox 360, an alleged beta tester leaked details on Skyrim's latest DLC. It should be noted that the beta
tester's status is unconfirmed and all of the following is rumor until proven otherwise.
According to the leaked info, Dragonborn doesn't require the completion of the main quest, but different dialogue options will be available if the main quest is completed. The DLC starts off with Cultists of Miraak attacking the player on their search for the false dragonborn. Looting their corpses will reveal information about where the cultists come from. A boat can then be taken from Windhelm to Solstheim, the setting of the DLC.
Solstheim has a discrete map and is approximately the size of the Reach near Markarth.
New factions include a werewolf pack located at Frostmoon Crag and the Morag Tong, the Morrowind assassin's guild. Unfortunately, the player cannot join the Morag Tong and the only level of interactivity available is to fight them.
New enemies, locations, armor, weapons, spells, and shouts will also be available.
Considering that Dragonborn is hitting the 360 tomorrow (priced at $20), we'll be able to see the validity of the details that the beta tester leaked.
PC and PS3 players will have to wait until early 2013 to play Dragonborn. This is especially happy news for PS3 players, who have thus so far been spurned in getting Skyrim DLC due to technical issues.
depending on the size of the content, it may warrant 20$
$5 is the maximum I will pay for dawnguard. Same for $5 for Dragonborn. Given that Skyrim alone gonna took 250-300 hours per character, it is not like I gonna finish everything in 1 year if I were to build every type of diff character build, And with lots of mods quest afterward. So I got plenty of time to wait price drop lol
I don't think the previous DLC was worth 20$.
Also bear in mind that (last time I checked) this game is still selling for 60$...13 months after release.
I just picked up Dawnguard for $14 and Hearthfire for $3 on the Steam winter sale. I guess I'll wait until Dragonborn is released for the PC before playing again. Just enough time to play Mass Effect 3 through again with the new Omega DLC :wahoo:
Might have been worth $20 if released at the same time as Xbox version but a 30 day delay means it's worth less since it is not new content any more - If I have to wait 30 days may as well wait 30 more and buy it on sale rather than pay full price or just skip it altogether. (since the only way to stop companies from doing these stupid exclusive timed releases is to not support the companies that do them !)
