Skyrim's next expansion will let you ride a dragon (probably)

Dragonborn will be the next DLC for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. Bethesda's trailer, which we've embedded after the break, announces new content that centers on the first Dragonborn. More importantly, the preview all but confirms that players will be able to finally ride dragons.

Dragonborn tells the story of an ancient Dragon Priest who feasted on the souls of dragons. Details are scant, but the trailer makes it quite clear that this Dragonborn will be the antagonist of the new story. The DLC will take place on the island of Solstheim, a previously unavailable locale in the lands of Skyrim. Naturally, the new setting brings new weapons, armor, weapons and enemies.

Dragonborn will launch December 4 on Xbox Live for 1600 Microsoft Points No word yet on PS3 or PC launch dates.
