Dragonborn, the third and largest DLC so far for the acclaimed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, is now available exclusively for Xbox 360 since last December 4 - for PlayStation 3 and PC will be released in early 2013-, and At IGN Spain we have already had the opportunity to ride the skies on the back of our dragon for the first time.

The truth is that, until now, Bethesda Softworks has been expanding the content of Skyrim during the current year 2012 without much success. Dawnguard was too short for most diehard fans of this magnificent RPG ; and Hearhfire , meanwhile, ended up being a mere addition of new functions and features, without just introducing a few lines of history to the plot of this fifth part of the series.

But Dragonborn is different. Finally, the company has introduced enough significant news to make us pay 1600 Microsoft Points (or what is the same, € 20 ). And is that the title of the DLC does not refer to the protagonist as many predicted, but to the new villain that we will have to face: the first Dragon Blood priest . However, in almost everything else, the speculations that the community carried out during the last days were going quite well.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragonborn takes our Dovahkiin to Solstheim Island, a province of Morrowind located in the northwestern part of Skyrim . And it is that many years ago, the first known Dragon Blood ruled not only that arid island , but it also dominated the dragon cries ( Th'um ) in the same innate way as the protagonist hero does. Then, this unprecedented being with such special qualities began to take the lives and souls of the dragons that he was supposed to worship, and in the remote corner of his world, he became the most powerful of all the inhabitants. As time passed, when dragons and priests perished years ago, he succumbed as well. Now that these immense creatures are reemerging again, this Dragon Blood has also awakened, and our Dovahkiin must sail to Solstheim as the only hope to stop him.

This main campaign that is added in Dragonborn also begins in a quite natural and integrated way, as the Bethesda boys have used us in their DLCs. After downloading the pack (about 800 MB ) and starting to play, we will soon be assaulted by a kind of sectarian group whenever we are in one of the main cities. Once defeated, in their pockets we will find a mysterious note that will urge us to travel to Solstheim to stop the so-called Dragon Blood . After that, we will only have to move to the Ventalia docks to move by sea to the new location located in the province of Morrowind ... what memories!

Although Dragonborn is Skyrim's third official DLC, it's the first time new territory has been added to discover. Furthermore, Solstheim is not exactly insubstantial in size; it is approximately the same size as any of the existing regions of the game, greatly increasing the proportion of Skyrim's explorable area by approximately 10 to 15 percent. Also, during our trips around the island, we will visit a large city called Roca del Cuervo (the capital of the region, with the presence of Imperial forces), as well as some other smaller settlements, mainly populated by the Dunmer.
