The third piece of Skyrim DLC has a new trailer which includes ride-able dragons, a new dragonborn, and new enemies to face. While it doesn't have a release date, it'll still come out for 360 first due to the deal that both Bethesda and Microsoft have. So yeah, more Skyrim.

It's out December 4th, according to the trailer. And the 1.8 update apparently fixes the PS3 version for DLC.

I hoped this was gonna be about dragonsex

And that the next expansion introduced cars so we could finally have dragons humping cars in Skyrim. With Brad reviewing it.

You beat me to it, but I can almost guarantee there's a mod out there for this already.

I'd love it if the dragons flew backwards.

I got bored in the first hour of Dawnguard. I don't think I want anymore DLC. The main game was enough for me. Maybe in a year or so I'll come back to it. Too many other good games right now...

Definitely should have waited for this instead of buying Dawnguard.

Very Morrowind-ish again. They should probably just set the next game there.

I have a feeling this will be Skyrim's Shivering Isles, where Dawnguard was more the proverbial Knights of the Nine. By that I mean one is a smaller expansion that gives you a new faction and some new things to toy with, while the other is a full on new landmass expansion with a bunch of new shit worth talking about.

And yes, that does make Hearthfire the Horse Armor of the game.

I'm very excited for this. Anything that gives me an excuse to jump back into Skyrim. The hearthfire stuff was pretty underwhelming but I though Dawnguard was pretty great.

I haven't actually played any of the DLC yet; I never figured out when they were released on PC (I know the last two are already out now, though) and was too lazy too look them up. I'll probably get them all at once... eventually. Mods have got me covered until then.

Do you remember how long it took for the last DLC to make it to all the other platforms? Was it a matter of weeks or more than a month?

@EquitasInvictus: Probably a month for PC users. Dawngaurd still isn't out on PS3.

Loving the Telvanni and Redoran buildings! Redoran was my favorite house in Morrowind because they had kick ass armors, weapons, and architecture. Can't wait to play this. Looks like maybe some Dunmer refugees from Morrowind fled to Solstheim and rebuilt after the whole shitshow with Vivec and the Ministry of Truth.

There's one thing I don't understand. I thought the whole reason why they got rid of levitation in Oblivion and Skyrim was because of the closed off cities, and now they give us a fucking dragon to ride around ? Unless they load in the cities at all times, which I very much doubt, won't this look kinda ugly when flying close to the ground near a city ?

Maybe that's nitpicky but I don't see the benefit of riding a dragon when you can fast travel anywhere anyway.

@SlashDance:

Well open cities already exist in the world. Altho they are the smaller ones. And the PC has always been able to handle bigger cities in gamebryo engine just fine, it is essentially a console limitation. So aside from exporting cities into the rest of the world like mods did before; they really only have to figure out how to make it workable on the 360.

The advantage is looking cool and breathing fire on the peasants below :P

My guess is that you can only ride the dragons in the expansion area, which I'd imagine won't have any closed off cities.

Where did you hear that? All I've heard is that Bethesda's still working on getting it fixed.

Fuuuuck that we need a Black Marsh game. But a return to some of the things that made Morrowind awesome like the Guild/Faction system, and while I liked the way Skyrim did the perks I would like some of the old character building stuff back like spell crafting and hand to hand and those dumb fucking 3D Zelda-esque sidehops, back flips, an jump slashes.  
 
Anyway I'll pick up the GOTY of this, mainly because I never touched the other stuff and I'd hope this is a very big addition but they will do more small, kind of cool things like that Harvest Moon one they put out a couple months ago.
